31

What names are given to the condition in which one zygapophysis of a vertebral couple lies in the coronal plane or position and the other zygaopohysis lies in teh sagittal plane or position?

Joint asymmetry or joint tropism

32

What is the name(s) of the condition in which the typical lumbar spinous process increases in length due to the aging process?

Baastrup's syndrome or "kissing spines"

33

What is Baastrup's syndrome?

Elongation of the lumbar spinous process as a result of aging

34

What muscles will attach to the typical lumbar spinous process?

Latissimus dorsi, serratus posterior inferior, iliocostalis lumborum, longissimus thoracis, spinalis thoracis, multifidis, rotator longus, rotator brevis, and interspinalis

35

What characteristic of the L1-L4 pedicle may be used to differentiate it from the L5 segment? Be specific and complete as the difference(s) on a segment from each group.

On cranial view, the lateral surface of the pedicle is apparent on a L1-L4 segment. At L5 the transverse process originates from the vertebral body, pedicle, and lamina-pedicle region

36

What muscles may attach to the transverse process of the fifth thoracic vertebra?

Psoas major, quadratus lumborum, longissimus thoracis, rotator brevis, rotator longus, and intertransversarii

37

What ligaments traditionally attach to the transverse process of the fifth lumbar vertebra?

Lumbosacral, iliolumbar, and mammillo-accessory ligaments

38

What is the name(s) of the condition in which the L5 spinous process increases in length due to the aging process?

Baastrup's syndrome or "kissing spines"

39

What is the name given to the congenital condition in which the fifth lumbar spinous process is elongated, the sacrum exhibits spina bifia, and dorsiflexion produces pain?

Knife Clasp Syndrome

40

What muscles will attach to the fifth lumbar spinous process?

Latissimus dorsi, iliocostalis lumborum, longissimus thoracis, multifidis, rotator longus, rotator brevis, and interspinalis
