    Whatever the case, those seven vertebrae dwarf the ones found in our bodies. In fact, each giraffe neck vertebra may be as long as 10 inches (25 centimeters) [source: San Diego Zoo ]. As you can guess, that doesn't exactly make for a light load to tote. 9 | JOINTS Figure Girl Kayaking Without joints, body movements would be impossible. (credit: Graham Richardson/ ) Introduction Chapter Objectives After this chapter, you will be able to: • Discuss both functional and structural classifications for body joints • Describe the characteristic features for fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial joints and give examples of each.

Structure. The nuchal ligament extends from the external occipital protuberance on the skull and median nuchal line to the spinous process of the seventh cervical vertebra in the lower part of the neck.

From the anterior border of the nuchal ligament, a fibrous lamina is given off. This is attached to the posterior tubercle of the atlas, and to the spinous processes of the cervical TA: A Start studying Ligamentum Nuchae.

The foetal ligamentum nuchae showed two distinct stages of development, each characterised by its cell population and fibre products.

SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Little is known about the arrangement of connective tissue attachments of the neighboring neck muscles to the ligamentum nuchae.

In addition, it is not clear whether the cervical supraspinous ligaments form part of the ligamentum by: Where is the elastic dense connective tissue found. c) found in ligamentum nuchae, ligamentum flavum, suspensory ligament of the penis, vocal ligament, walls of elastic arteries; Subjects.

Elastic connective tissue is a technical term for body tissue that contains a large amount of elastin, one of the proteins that make up connective tissue in general. Elastin is the protein that allows for tissue to regain its shape after being compressed or warped.

Elastin is springy.

Hypothesis: The authors hypothesized that soft tissue allograft healing to bone would be delayed compared with that of autograft tissue and that low-dose ( Mrad) gamma irradiation would not affect the healing response of allograft tissue after anterior cru-ciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

The nuchal ligament is a soft tissue structure that is widely discussed in dressage circles.

Unsurprisingly, given its deep location, relatively few of us get to cast eyes on it or feel it directly under our hands. It’s equally unsurprising, then, that most of us don’t realize that the image we hold in our heads is somewhat different to the reality of the ligament inside our horse.

The first section of the book, which deals with the functional anatomy (structure and biomechanics), immediately alerts the reader to the necessity of understanding the natural develop­ ment and action of the related structures, clearly emphasizing that successful diagnosis and treatment cannot otherwise be expected; the many who want an easy Manufacturer: Springer.

The transverse ligament of the atlas is a thick, strong band, which arches across the ring of the atlas, and retains the odontoid process in contact with the anterior arch. It is concave in front, convex behind, broader and thicker in the middle than at the ends.

The anterior surface of the ligament is covered with articular cartilage to allow articulation with the Odontoid process. Other types of ligaments form fibrous sheets that support such internal organs as the kidneys and the spleen. Ligament.

Where the aponeurotic parts of the two muscles join on the middle line, the contiguous fibres interlace to form the linea alba, a dense white tissue stretching from the xiphoid process to the pubis at the middle of the figure.

One recent tissue-engineered structure developed by Altman et al. is a matrix composed of twisted silk fibers.

This structure combines two of the tissue engineering approaches to regenerate lost or damaged tissue: the use of a three-dimensional, porous matrix and the use of isolated cells that have been expanded in by: The exact function of the ligamentum teres is not yet clear, different theories have been proposed: first, ligamentum teres might have the same function in the hip that anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee, a strong intrinsic stabilizer that resists joint subluxation forces.Patients with tears of the ligamentum teres develop hip microinstability and when combined with sporting Cited by:   We’ve noted that the Taylor et al.

It was my privilege to present a talk. Where is the hyoid bone located. National Athletic Trainers' Association. The hyoid bone is a horseshoe-shaped bone in the front of the neck. This bone is not directly connected to any other bones so it is known as a floating bone. It surrounds the vocal cords and is held in place by muscles and ligaments.

For 40 years, Bancroft’s Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques has established itself as the standard reference for histotechnologists and laboratory scientists, as well as histopathologists.

In August, when I could still lie on my back, I watched the documentary Alice Neel’s nephew made about the late American painter: the amount of pain one person can go through—growing four children in your womb, each for nine months, and losing two of them—not to mention the hardship, poverty, and betrayal Neel suffered.

What is the correct definition of ligament. Place where two or more bones meet. A type of connecting tissue that allows joints to move easily, cushions bones, and supports soft tissues, such as those in the nose and ear.

A type of connecting tissue that holds bones in place at the joints. Scaffold technology is integral in advancing tissue engineering and one of the tissues of interest here is the tendon/ligament. Advancement in the tissue engineering of tendon/ligament has become very much a materials engineering problem than ever, with the selection of appropriate biomaterial and scaffold architecture.

Such is the key to successful tendon/ligament tissue Cited by: 7. Match each ligament and structure listed below with its appropriate function or characteristic. An answer may be used more than once.
