Flashcards in OSTEOLOGY OF THE ANTERIOR THORAX - joint classifications Deck (18):
1

What are the examples of the typical syndesmosis from the vertebral column?

most of the ligamentous joints of the vertebral column and anterior thorax

2

Which cartilage joint forms between ossification centers within a cartilage template?

(amphiarthrosis) synchondrosis

3

Which classification of cartilage joint is primary, temporary and composed of hyaline cartilage?

(amphiarthrosis) synchondrosis

4

What are examples of a permanent (amphiarthrosis) synchondrosis?

costochondral joints or the first sternochdonral joint

5

Which cartilage joint occurs between bones formed by endochondral ossification?

(amphiarthrosis) symphysis

6

What are the characteristics of a (amphiarthrosis) symphysis?

limited motion, median plane location, support ligaments both anterior and posterior to the joint, more permanent in longevity than synchondrosis and they occur between bones developing by endochondral ossification

7

Which ribs demonstrate costochondral joints?

all twelve ribs

8

What are the joint surfaces of the costochondral joint?

the costal cartilage with the sternal end of each rib

9

What is the joint classification of the costochondral joint?

cartilaginous (amphiarthrosis) synchondrosis

10

What is the sternocostal or sternochondral joint?

the joint between the costal cartilage and the costal notches of the sternum

11

What ribs will participate in the sternocostal or sternochondral joint?

rib 1 to rib 7

12

What is the calssifcation of the first sternocostal or sternochondral joint?

cartilaginous (amphiarthrosis) synchondrosis

13

What is the classification of the second - seventh sternocostal or sternochondral joint

synovial plane (diarthrosis arthrodia)

14

Which of the sternocostal or sternochodnral ligaments is unique to the second sternocostal or sternochdonral joint?

the intra-articular ligament

15

What joint classification is associated with the intra-articular ligament of the second sternocostal or sternochondral joint?

fibrous (amphiarthrosis) syndesmosis

16

What is the classification of the sixth through the ninth interchondral joints?

synovial plane (diarthrosis arthrodia)

17

What is the classification of the fifth - sixth or ninth - tenth interchondral joint?

fibrous (amphiarthrosis) syndesmosis

18

Which costal cartilages fail to form a joint at their sternal end?

the eleventh and twelfth costal cartilages
