  • Juvenile Osteology

    correlate with the dental features of a 4 to 6-year-old child as Ubelaker points out (Ubelaker 1989). The observable M1 molar on the left and right of the mandible was determined to coincide with this age range. Dental formation of the M2 mandibular molar crowns provided a correlation of this age range. With 80% accuracy I would determine this to be a child of 4 to 6 years old at the time of death. There is a note however, in Ubelakers charts (Buikstra and Ubelaker 1994), that provide a plus or minus of the ascribed age of the dentition as 16 months +/-. So to account for this variation it has been added to the original age estimate. The joined inventory sheets provide the measurements of the long bones and ilium, state of union of the epiphysis to the diaphysis and the dental…

  • Memoral Epiphysis Case Study

    1. I diagnose the patient as having slipped capital femoral epiphysis. I believe her condition is stable, but will worsening if not treated.

  • Immoral Epiphysis: A Short Story

    Walking down the long and dreaded hospital hallway around four in the morning, hearing my own slippers scuff across the floor as I limped, I tried remaining as calm as possible since I had already had plenty of time to think. We just entered the room that I would be staying in. My emotions weighed each other out so I didn’t know how to react anymore. Should I be happy that things will be better for me after, or scared that something could go wrong and having to recover from such a traumatic…

  • Case Study: The Salter-Harris Classification

    to the growth plate based on the mnemonic SALTER; type I: Slip or Separation of the growth plate, type II: Above the growth plate, type III: Lower than the growth plate, type IV: Through the growth plate, and type V: Raised epiphysis. Children have open growth plates until after adolescence, so this area is more susceptible to injury.1 Injury to the growth plates can result in length discrepancy and growth plate arrest, angular deformation, or altered joint mechanics which may cause significant…

  • Voluntary Human Movement

    Most of the bones in the lower and upper extremities are long bones, including the femur, tibia, fibula, and metatarsals in the lower limb, and the humerus, radius, ulna, and metacarpals in the upper extremity. Each long bone has a shaft called a diaphysis and two ends that are usually wider than the shaft, known as epiphyses (singular = epiphysis). During the childhood and adolescent years, these cartilaginous epiphyses are active as growth plates that permit normal longitudinal bone growth to…

  • Ethmoid Bone Injury Case Study

    chronic diseases do, in fact, leave evidence on bone so it would not be impossible for the growth to be the result of something infectious (White et. al. 2012: 443). I still believe it is much more likely that the individual suffered from a form of neoplasm. Neoplastic conditions are tumors that occur in a localized area that cause irregular cell growth.The only reason I would assume the defect to be congenital is because the growth has been in the affected area long enough to affect the…

  • Cause And Effect Of Obesity In Children

    effect of obesity. In addition to the conditions mentioned in the previous paragraph, too much weight could seriously affect the growth and health of bones, joints, and muscles. The most significant growth in size and strength of most parts of the human anatomy grow when at a young age, most especially the bones. However, excess weight could cause significant damages on the growth plate, which are the areas of developing cartilage tissues at the end of the limbs and long bones (Waters 10-12).…

  • Implications Of Childhood Obesity

    which also contributes to asthma (Daniels 54). “ The skeletal system includes the bones and joints. In obesity, skeletal abnormalities, often referred to as orthopedic problems, can affect the lower extremities (Daniels 55).” In this case children who are obese will encounter these orthopedic problems if their lifestyle continues the way it is. More fat in the bones and joints result into health related problems for the child. The issues of the skeletal system become problematic when excess…
