• Describe ossification in fetal development. During development, the fetal bones are made up of cartilaginous tissue, which is like osseous tissue, except it is more flexible. The absence of calcium salts in its intercellular spaces makes it less dense. As development continues, the process of the depositing of calcium salts into the cartilaginous tissue occurs, and continues throughout their life. Ossification is the gradual replacement of cartilage and its intercellular substance by bone…
Scoliosis is a pathology in which the spine has an abnormal curvature.
The vertebrae column has two natural curvatures. First, there is a lordosis in which the spine a slight bend in the posterior direction located in the cervical portion of the vertebrae column. The second curvature the spinal column has is known as a kyphosis, in which the thoracic portion of the spine bends slight anteriorly. Scoliosis is evident when a person has excess curvature of the spine in a lateral…
Analyze the bone remodeling process and the minerals involved in that process. Distinguish among the twelve common bone markings and provide examples of in which bones and locations those markings are found.
Condyle- it is a large rounded prominence fitting into a fossa. This type of bone marking is a process that forms joints forming i.e. the medial condyle of the femur (Mid Lands Tech, 2016).
Crest- it is slightly risen with protruded ridges. This type of bone marking is a process to attach…
1. Anatomy of the trachea and bronchi.
The trachea (Fig.1) is a cartilaginous and membranous tube, extending from the lower part of the larynx, on a level with the sixth cervical vertebra, to the upper border of the fifth thoracic vertebra, where it divides into two main bronchi, one for each lung. The trachea is nearly but not quite cylindrical, being flattened posteriorly; it measures about 11 cm. in length; its diameter, from side to side, is from 2 to 2.5 cm., being always greater in…
