Chapter 8 The Skeletal System – Appendicular System Learning objectives: List the bones of the appendicular system. Identify the bones of the upper limb. Describe the articulations between the bones of the upper limb. Identify the bones of the pectoral girdle. Describe how the pectoral girdle attaches the upper limb to the axial system. Identify the bones of the lower limb. Describe the articulations between the bones of the lower limb. Identify the bones of the pelvic girdle. Describe how the pelvic girdle attaches the lower limb to the axial system. Differentiate between male and female pelvic girdles.

Pectoral Girdle: Attach upper extremities to the axial skeleton Bones include: Clavicles : articulate with scapula and sternum. Scapulae : articulate with the arm bone and the clavicle. Appendicular Skeleton – Pectoral Girdle

Clavicles : S shaped bones. Landmarks include: Medial sternal end - articulates with the manubrium of sternum. Forms sternoclavicular joint . Lateral acromial end - articulates with the acromion of scapula. Forms acromioclavicular joint . Appendicular Skeleton – Pectoral Girdle

Scapula : Flat, triangular shaped bone placed on the posterior surface of thorax. Landmarks include: Body : main part of scapula. Medial, lateral and superior borders : margins of the body. Spine : a bony ridge that runs obliquely across the posterior surface. Acromion : a lateral, flat end of the spine; the high point of the shoulder. Coracoid process : a projection of the body just below the acromion; attachment site for muscles. Supraspinous fossa : depression on the posterior surface of the scapula body, superior to spine. Infraspinous fossa : depression on the posterior surface of the scapula body, inferior to spine. Subscapular fossa : depression on the anterior surface of scapula body. Scapular notch : notch on superior border. Glenoid cavity : a cavity on the lateral border of the scapula; for articulation with head of humerus---forms glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
