Appendicular skeleton

  1. 1. Organization of the Skeleton <ul><li>Axial Skeleton </li></ul><ul><li>Appendicular Skeleton </li></ul>Axial Skeleton is the “ blue ” Appendicular Skeleton is the “ purple ”
  2. 2. The Appendicular Skeleton <ul><li>The appendicular skeleton is composed of the: </li></ul><ul><li>pectoral girdle </li></ul><ul><li>upper extremities </li></ul><ul><li>pelvic girdle </li></ul><ul><li>lower extremities </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Pectoral Girdle <ul><li>Also called the “ shoulder girdle ,” the pectoral girdle contains four (4) bones. It functions to anchor and support the upper extremities and serves as an </li></ul>important attachment site for a great number of muscles that help to move the arm . The bones of the pectoral girdle are as follows:
  4. 4. <ul><li>The Clavicles (2) </li></ul><ul><li>Also known as the “ collarbones ,” these act as anterior braces or struts, helping to prevent dislocations of the shoulder. </li></ul>Bones of the Pectoral Girdle
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Scapula (2) </li></ul><ul><li>Also known as the “shoulder blades,” these contain the shallow sockets into which the head of the humerus fits. </li></ul>Bones of the Pectoral Girdle
  6. 6. The Upper Extremities <ul><li>The upper extremities or upper appendages, and commonly, but inappropriately, called the “arms,” contain a total of sixty (60) bones from regions commonly called the “upper arm,” “forearm,” “wrist,” and “hand.” The bones of the upper extremities listed proximally to distally are as follows: </li></ul>
  7. 7. Bones of the Upper Extremities Humerus
  8. 8. Bones of the Upper Extremities Radius
  9. 9. Bones of the Upper Extremities Ulna
  10. 10. Reminder: A Comparison of the Radius to the Ulna always “palm up,” palmar or supinated perspective “ Thumb” “ Pinkie” Radius (on thumb side) Ulna (on pinkie side)
  11. 11. 5 1 2 3 4 4 3 2 1 5 6 7 8 Proximal row of carpals – supinated (palmar) view; laterally to medially; or from below metacarpal 1 to metacarpal 5 Bones of the Upper Extremities 1 = Scaphoid 3 = Triangular 2 = Lunate 4 = Pisiform
  12. 12. 5 = Trapezium 6 = Trapezoid 7 = Capitate 8 = Hamate Distal row of carpals – supinated (palmar) view; laterally to medially; or from below metacarpal 1 to metacarpal 5 5 1 2 3 4 4 3 2 1 5 6 7 8 Bones of the Upper Extremities
  13. 13. Bones of the Upper Extremities 1 2 3 4 5 Metacarpals
  14. 14. Naming the Metacarpals: ____________ metacarpal of the _________ hand . (1 st , 2 nd , 3 rd , 4 th , or 5 th ) (Left or Right) **Note: Counting for the metacarpals 1 st through 5 th goes from “thumb” to “pinkie.” Reminder: 1 2 3 4 5 Metacarpals
  15. 15. Bones of the Upper Extremities P P M D D P M D P M D P M D 1 2 3 4 5 Phalanges
  16. 16. Naming the Phalanges: _______________ phalanx of the ___________ digit of the _________ hand . (1 st , 2 nd , 3 rd , 4 th , or 5 th ) (Left or Right) (proximal, middle, or distal) **Note: The 1 st digit, or thumb, has only proximal & distal phalanges – no middle. P P M D D P M D P M D P M D Reminder: 1 2 3 4 5 Proximal Middle Distal Phalanges
  17. 17. Summary of Upper Extremities <ul><li>4. Metacarpals (10) – the “palm” and/or the “back of the hand” </li></ul><ul><li>5. Phalanges (28) – (singular = phalanx) the “fingers” </li></ul><ul><li>1. Humerus (2) – the “upper arm” </li></ul><ul><li>2. Radius and Ulna (4) – the “forearm” </li></ul><ul><li>3.

  18. 18. The Pelvic Girdle <ul><li>The pelvic girdle , also called the “ pelvis ,” functions to support and protect the soft, vital organs of the abdominal cavity , provide a stable support for the trunk of the body , and to provide attachments for the lower extremities (the legs). The bones of the pelvic girdle are as follows: </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>The Coxal Bones or Ossa Coxae </li></ul><ul><li>Also commonly called the “ hipbones ,” the coxal bones each consist of three parts which become fused </li></ul>Bones of the Pelvic Girdle in late adolescence to form a single bones. They articulate posteriorly with the sacrum and anteriorly to each other at the symphysis pubis joint.
  20. 20. <ul><li>The three subparts of the coxal bone which fuse in late adolescence are as follow: </li></ul><ul><li>a. The Ilium </li></ul><ul><li>b. The Ischium </li></ul><ul><li>c. The Pubis </li></ul>Bones of the Pelvic Girdle
  21. 21. <ul><li>The Sacrum </li></ul><ul><li>Also a part of the vertebral column, it serves as a posterior anchor for the coxal bones and as a solid, posterior wall for the pelvic girdle . </li></ul>Bones of the Pelvic Girdle The Coccyx Also known as the “ tailbone .”
  22. 22. The Lower Extremities <ul><li>The lower extremities or lower appendages, and commonly, but inappropriately, called the “legs,” contain a total of sixty (60) bones from regions commonly called the “thigh,” “shin,” “ankle,” and “foot.” The bones of the lower extremities listed proximally to distally are as follows: </li></ul>
