Alexis Ruiz Period 5 Vocabulary Chapter 8 – Joints 1. Joint (articulation)- the sites where two or more bones meet  Give skeletonmobility  Hold it together  Protection 2. Synarthroses- immovable joints  Immovable joints are largely restricted to the axial skeleton  Fibrous joints are immovable 3. Amphiarthroses- slightly immovable joints  Largely restricted to the axial skeleton  Cartilaginous joints 4. Diarthroses- freely movable joints  Synovial joints 5. Fibrous joints- the bones are joined by fibrous tissue, mainly dense fibrous connective tissue, and no cavity is present  The amount of movement allowed depends on the length of the connective tissue fibers uniting the bones  Most fibrous joints are immovable oval a few are slightly movable 6. Sutures - sutures, literally “seams” occur only between bones of the skull  The wavy articulating bone edges interlock and the junction is completely filled by a minimal amount of very short connective tissue fibers and a continuous with the periosteum  The result is nearly rigid splices that knit the bones together yet allow the skulls expand as the brain grows during youth 7. Syndesmoses- the bones are connected exclusively by ligaments cords or bands of fibrous tissue  Although the connecting fibers are always longer than those in sutures they vary quite a bit in length  The amount of moment allowed at a syndesmosis depends on the length of the connecting fibers 8. Gomphoses- is a peg in socket fibrous joint  The only example is the articulation of a tooth with its bony alveolar socket  The term gomphosis comes from the Greek gone so meaning nail or bolt and refers to the way teeth are embedded in their sockets 9. Cartilaginous joints- the articulating bones are united by cartilage  Like fibrous joints they lack a joint cavity and I’m not highly movable  The two types of cartilaginous joints are synchondroses and symphyses 10. Synchondroses- a bar or plate of hyaline cartilage unites the bone  Virtually all synchondroses are synarthrotic  The most common examples of synchondrosis are the epiphyseal plates in long bones of children 11. Symphyses- a joint where fibrocartilage unites the bone  Since fibrocartilage is compressible and silent and acts as a shock absorber and permits a limited amount of movement at the joint  Even though fibrocartilage is the main element of symphysis Hyaline cartilage is also present in the form of articular cartilage on the bone surface 12. Synovial joints- are those in which the articulating bones are separated by a fluid containing joint cavity  This arrangement permits substantial freedom of movement and all synovial joints are freely movable diarthroses  Nearly all joints of the lambs –indeed most joints of the body- fall into this class 13. Articular cartilage- glassy smooth hyaline cartilage covers the opposing bone services as articular cartilage  Days then but spongy cushions absorb compression place on the joint and thereby keep the bone ends from being crushed 14. Articular (joint) capsule- the joint cavity is enclosed by a two layered articular capsule or joint capsule  The tough external fibrous layer is composed of density of a glare connected tissue that is continuous with the periostea of that articulating bones  It strengthens the joint so that the bones are not pulled apart 15. Bursae- are flat and fibrous sacs line with synovial membrane and containing a thin film of synovial fluid  They occur where ligaments muscles skin tendons are bones wrapped together 16. Tendon Sheath- is essentially an elongated bursa that wrapped completely around a tendon subjected to friction like a bun around a hotdog  they are common were several tendons are crowded together with a narrow canals (in the wrist region for example)
