Anatomy of Skeletal Elements
The Musculoskeletal system
• 206 bones
• grouped into the axial and appendicular
• 650 muscles
– approximately 40% of your body weight
– also divided into an axial and an appendicular
Classification of Bones
• 6 types - based on anatomical
– Long bones = greater length than width
– Short bones = cube-shaped, spongy
bone except at surface
– Flat bones = two parallel plates of
compact bone sandwiching spongy bone
– Irregular bones = cannot be grouped
– Sesamoid bones = develop in tendons
where there is considerable friction,
tension and stress
– Sutural bones = located within joints
between cranial bones
Bone Markings (surface features)
• Used to identify specific elevations,
depressions, and openings of bones
• Bone markings provide distinct and
characteristic landmarks for orientation and
identification of bones and associated
Bony Processes
• Depressions and openings
Fissure – narrow slit
Foramen – hole for nerves, blood vessels
Fossa – cuplike depression
Sulcus – furrow on a bone surface, contains a nerve or blood vessel
Meatus – tubelike opening
• Processes – projection or outgrowth on bone for attachment
Condyle – smoothened process at end of bone, forms a joint
Facet – smooth flat surface, forms a joint
Head – rounded condyle on a neck, forms a joint
Crest – prominent ridge or projection, for attachment of connective tissues
Epicondyle – projection above a condyle, for attachment of connective tissues
Line – long, narrow ridge (less prominent than a crest), for attachment of
connective tissues
Spinous process – sharp, slender projection, for attachment of connective tissues
Trochanter – process of the femur, for attachment of connective tissues
Tubercle – process of the humerus, for attachment of connective tissues
Tuberosity – roughening on a bone surface, for attachment of connective tissues

•facial bones = 14 bones: nasals, maxillae, zygomatics, mandible, lacrimals, palatines,
inferior nasal conchae, vomer
•skull forms a larger cranial cavity
-also forms the nasal cavity, the orbits, paranasal sinuses
•mandible and auditory ossicles are the only movable skull bones
•skull contains many holes for the passage of nerves and vessels = foramen/foramina
•cranial bones also: attach to membranes called meninges
-stabilize positions of the brain, blood vessels
-outer surface provides large areas for muscle attachment that
move the head or provide facial expressions
black eyes: superior to the supraorbital ridge is a sharp ridge
-a blow will fracture the bone and result in bleeding & inflammation
cleft lip and palate: palatine processes usually unite at embryonic weeks 10-12
-failure results in a hole = cleft palate
-the palatine bones themselves may fail to fuse
-a split in the upper lip may also result = cleft lip
-complications: speech, swallowing, ear infections -> hearing loss
-closure of cleft lip - few weeks after birth
-closure of cleft palate - 12 to 18 months
TMJ: associated with the temperomandibular joint
-dull pain around ear, tenderness of jaw, difficulty chewing, headache
-results from grinding of teeth and clenching of jaws
-no permanent treatments
deviated nasal septum: nasal septum divides the nasal cavity into right and left
-three components: vomer, septal cartilage & perpendicular plate of the
-deviation results in a later deflection of the septum
-severe deviation may affect breathin

Supportive Connective tissues: types
-cartilage & bone
1. Cartilage:
-cells = chondrocytes
-matrix = collagen fibers embedded in a gel-like
-collagen type II
-ground substance - water +
-proteoglycans - protein + sugars
e.g. chondroitin sulfate
-functions in support, attachment, protection
-in developing child - model for future bone
(endochondral bone)
-avascular tissue - produces anti-angiogenic
chemicals (inhibits growth of blood vessels)
-therefore diffusion is the main mode of
-3 types: 1) Hyaline - most common
- “glass”
- ends of bones, within joints (synovial, articular),
- end of nose, supports respiratory passages
2. Elastic - flexible cartilage
- external ears and parts of larynx
3. Fibrocartilage - very tough -> more collagen fibers
- shock absorber
e.g. intervertebral discs of the knee
Classification of Joints
Wherever two bones interact
Function depends on structure
can classify according to:
A. structure – i.e. what they are made of
A. fibrous
B. cartilagenous
C. synovial
B. function - movement
– No movement = synarthrotic
– Slight movement = amphithrotic
– Extensive movement = diathrotic
Fibrous joints
•lack a synovial cavity
•articulating surfaces are held very closely by fibrous connective tissue
•three types
1. Sutures: composed a thin layer of fibrous connective tissue
-unites the bones of the skull
e.g. coronal suture
-interlocking edges of the suture gives them strength
-immovable joint
2. Syndesmoses: greater distance between articular edges
-more fibrous connective tissue
-connective tissue arranged as a sheet (interosseous membrane)
or bundle (ligament)
-slightly movable
e.g. tibiofibular ligament connecting the tibiofibular joint
e.g. interosseous membranes between the radius and ulna, tibia and fibula
3. Gomphoses: cone shaped peg fits into a socket
e.g articulations of the roots of the teeth with the jaw
-held by the periodontal ligament
Cartilagenous joints
•lacks a synovial cavity
•allows little or no movement
•articulating bones are connected by hyaline cartilage or fibrocartilage
1. Synchondroses: connecting material is hyaline cartilage
e.g. epiphyseal plate of a growing bone
2. Symphyses: ends of bones are covered with hyaline cartilage but are connected
by a flat disc of fibrocartilage
-all symphyses occur at the midline of the body
e.g. pubic symphysis - connects two ends of the pubis bones
e.g. intervertebral joints between the bodies of 2 vertebrae
-slightly movable
Synovial joints
•presence of a synovial cavity between the articulating bone surfaces
freely movable
•lined with hyaline cartilage called articular cartilage
•filled with a fluid called synovial fluid
•surrounded by a fibrous capsule – inside is lined with a synovial membrane
•movement is along three possible axes:
Triaxial or Multiaxial
•6 subtypes:
1. planar/gliding
2. hinge
3. pivot
4. condyloid
5. saddle
6. ball and socket
Synovial Joints: General Anatomy
• Articular/Joint capsule encloses joint cavity
– continuous with periosteum of the bones of the
– lined by a synovial membrane that produces
synovial fluid
• Synovial fluid = slippery fluid; feeds cartilages
• Articular cartilage = hyaline cartilage
covering the joint surfaces
• Articular discs and menisci
– found in the jaw, wrist, sternoclavicular and
knee joints
– absorbs shock, guides bone movements and
distributes forces
• Tendon attaches muscle to bone
• Ligament attaches bone to bone
Synovial joint subtypes:
1. Planar/Gliding joints : articulating surfaces are flat or slightly
-permit side to side or back and forth gliding
-non axial - no motions around an axis
-some books say they are limited monaxial joints
e.g. intercarpal joints of the wrist bones
e.g. intertarsal joints of the ankle bones
2. Hinge joints: convex surface of one bone fits into a concave
-produces an angular, open and close movement
-movement is in one plane of motion = monaxial
3. Pivot joints: rounded or pointed end of one bone fits into a ring of
-also monaxial
-rotates around a longitudinal axis
e.g atlas-axis joint - first 2 vertebrae
4. Condyloid joints: or ellipsoid joints
-convex oval shaped projection of one bone fits into the
oval-shaped depression of another bone
-biaxial = two planes of motion
e.g. metacarpals and proximal phalanges
e.g. metatarsals and proximal phalanges
e.g. atlanto-occipital joint
5. Saddle joints: articular surface of one bone is saddle shaped
-modified condyloid joint
-biaxial – but more moveable than condyloid joints
e.g. thumb metacarpal and trapezium carpal bone
= trapeziometacarpal joint
6. Ball and socket joints: ball-like end of one bone fits into a
cuplike depression of another
-multiaxial - several planes of motion
e.g. hip joint, shoulder joint
