1 Chapter 8: The Appendicular Skeleton A&P Biology 141

2 The Appendicular Skeleton Figure 8–1

3 The Appendicular Skeleton Allows us to move and manipulate objects Includes all bones besides axial skeleton: –the limbs –the supportive girdles

4 The Pectoral Girdle Figure 8–2a What are the bones of the pectoral girdle, their functions, and features?

5 The Pectoral Girdle Also called the shoulder girdle Connects the arms to the body Positions the shoulders Provides a base for arm movement Consists of: –2 clavicles –2 scapulae Connects with the axial skeleton only at the manubrium

6 The Clavicles Figure 8–2b, c

7 The Clavicles Also called collarbones Long, S-shaped bones Originate at the manubrium (sternal end) Articulate with the scapulae (acromial end)

8 The Scapulae Also called shoulder blades Broad, flat triangles Articulate with arm and collarbone

9 The Scapula Anterior surface: the subscapular fossa Figure 8–3a

10 Structures of the Scapula Body has 3 sides: –superior border –medial border (vertebral border) –lateral border (axillary border) Body has 3 corners: –superior angle –inferior angle –lateral angle

11 Structures of the Scapula Figure 8–3b The Scapular Head Holds glenoid cavity Which articulates with humerus To form shoulder joint

12 Processes of the Glenoid Cavity Coracoid process: –anterior, smaller Acromion: –posterior, larger –articulates with clavicle –at the acromioclavicular joint

13 Structures of the Scapula Posterior surface Scapular spine: ridge across posterior surface of body Separates 2 regions: supraspinous fossa infraspinous fossa Posterior Features of the Scapula

14 What are the bones of the upper limbs, their functions, and features? The Upper Limbs Arms, forearms, wrists, and hands Note: arm (brachium) 1 bone - the Humerus

15 The Humerus Also called the arm The long, upper armbone Articulates with the pelvic girdle

16 Tubercles of the Proximal Epiphysis Separated by the intertubercular groove: –greater tubercle: lateral forms tip of shoulder –lesser tubercle: anterior, medial

17 Head and Neck Head: –rounded, articulating surface –contained within joint capsule Anatomical neck: –margin of joint capsule Surgical neck: – the narrow metaphysis

18 The Shaft Deltoid tuberosity: –a bulge in the shaft –attaches deltoid muscle Radial groove: –for radial nerve –posterior to deltoid tuberosity – The Distal Epiphysis Medial and lateral epicondyles: –for muscle attachment Condyle of the humerus: –articulates with ulna and radius

19 Articular Regions of the Condyle Trochlea: –coronoid fossa and olecranon fossa –articulates with ulna Capitulum: –radial fossa –articulates with radius

20 The Forearm Figure 8–5 Also called the antebrachium Consists of 2 long bones: ulna (medial) radius (lateral)

32 The Pelvic Girdle Figure 8–7 What are the bones of the pelvic girdle, their functions, and features ?

33 The Pelvic Girdle Made up of 2 hipbones (ossa coxae) Strong to bear body weight, stress of movement Part of the pelvis Os Coxae Made up of 3 fused bones: –ilium (articulates with sacrum) –ischium –pubis

34 The Acetabulum Also called the hip socket Is the meeting point of the ilium, ischium, and pubis Is on the lateral surface of the os coxae Articulates with head of the femur (lunate surface) Acetabular Notch A gap in the ridge of the margins of the acetabulum

35 Marks of the Ilium Greater sciatic notch: for sciatic nerveMarks of the Ilium Greater sciatic notch: for sciatic nerve Marks of the Ischium Ischial spine: –above lesser sciatic notch Ischial tuberosity: –posterior projection you sit on Ischial ramus: –meets inferior ramus of pubis

36 Marks of the Pubis Superior ramus: –meets pubic tubercle Pubic symphysis: –gap between pubic tubercles –padded with fibrocartilage

37 Marks of the Pelvic Girdle Obturator foramen: –formed by ischial and pubic rami –attaches hip muscles Pectineal line: –ridge of superior ramus of pubis –continues to iliac crest as arcuate line Iliac fossa: –depression between ileac crest and arcuate line

38 Articulations of the Pelvic Girdle Sacroiliac joint: –articulation of posterior auricular surface of ilium –with the sacrum –stabilized by ligaments of iliac tuberosity

39 The Pelvis Figure 8–8

40 The Pelvis Consists of 2 ossa coxae, the sacrum, and the coccyx Stabilized by ligaments of pelvic girdle, sacrum, and lumbar vertebrae 3D Rotation of Pelvis PLAY

41 Divisions of the Pelvis Figure 8–9

42 Divisions of the Pelvis * True pelvis: –encloses pelvic cavity- Pelvic brim: –upper edge of true pelvis –encloses pelvic inlet Perineum region: –inferior edges of true pelvis –forms pelvic outlet –perineal muscles support organs of pelvic cavity False pelvis: –blades of ilium above arcuate line

43 What are the structural and functional differences between the male and female pelvis?

44 Comparing the Male and Female Pelvis Figure 8–10

45 Comparing the Male and Female Pelvis Female pelvis: –smoother –lighter –less prominent muscle and ligament attachments Male and Female Pelvis PLAY

46 Pelvis Modifications for Childbearing Enlarged pelvic outlet Broad pubic angle (> 100°) Less curvature of sacrum and coccyx Wide, circular pelvic inlet Broad, low pelvis Ilia project laterally, not upwards

47 What are the bones of the lower limbs, their functions, and features? The Lower Limbs Functions: –weight bearing –motion Note: leg = lower leg; thigh = upper leg

65 Feet: Arches Arches transfer weight from 1 part of the foot to another Figure 8–14b

66 Feet: The Longitudinal Arch Calcanear portion: –lateral Talar portion: –Medial Feet: The Transverse Arch Formed by a difference in curvature between medial and lateral borders of the foot

67 KEY CONCEPT Pectoral girdle is highly mobile, stabilized primarily by muscles Pelvic girdle is more massive, stronger, and less mobile

68 How does the skeleton reveal significant information about an individual?

69 Studying the Skeleton Reveals characteristics: –muscle strength and mass (bone ridges, bone mass) –medical history (condition of teeth, healed fractures) –sex and age (bone measurements and fusion) –body size

70 What are the skeletal differences between males and females?

71 Male and Female Skeletons Table 8–1

72 How does aging affect the skeletal system?

73 Age-Related Skeletal Changes Table 8–2

74 SUMMARY (1 of 3) Components of the: –appendicular skeleton –pectoral girdle, and relationship to axial skeleton –upper limbs, and relationship to pectoral girdle

75 SUMMARY (2 of 3) Components of the: –pelvic girdle, and relationship to axial skeleton –lower limbs, and relationship to pelvic girdle
