Jan 21, 2020 ANP1106C Lecture 5: Skeletal System V + Joints I Lower limbs - Carry entire erect body weight (whole lotta jumping/running force) - Thicker than upper limbs - 3 segments: thigh, leg, foot Knee + Thigh bones - Femur (thigh): strongest, longest bone (1/4 th height); 280 kg/cm 2 (2 tonnes/square inch), cannot palpate (unlike ulna + radius) o Articulates hip bone, courses medially knees (balance, knee joints center of gravity; more so in women bc wider pelvis) o Head + fovea capitis + neck (femur neck = weak fracture = broken hip) o Greater + Lesser trochanter: attach thigh + buttock muscles o Gluteal tuberosity, linea aspera, medial + lateral supracondylar lines: muscle attach o Lateral + medial condyles: distal; articulate tibia; attach muscles o Patellar surface: smooth; between condyles; articulates patella (kneecap) - Patella: triangular sesamoid bone; within quadricep tendons (anterior thigh muscles tibia); protects knee joint + improves thigh muscle leverage

Tibia + Fibula - Parallel bones forming leg (knee ankle); interosseous membrane connects, articulate w/ each distally + proximally; tibiofibular joints: no movement dec. flexibility; inc. strength/stability; medial tibia articulates femur (proximally; knee hinge joint) + talus/ankle (distally) (fibula NO knee joint – only stabilizes ankle joint) - Tibia: body weight femur foot; second largest bone; o Medial + lateral condyles: proximal; articulate femur condyles o Tibia tuberosity: attach patellar ligaments o Tibia articulates talus (distally) o Medial malleolus: ankle medial bulge o Fibular notch: in inferior tibiofibular joint - Fibula: sticklike bone w/ expanded ends; articulates tibia (proximal + distal – lateral aspects) bears no weight but muscles originate from o Head: proximal o Lateral malleolus: distal; lateral ankle bulge; articulates talus

Foot - Tarsus, metatarsus, phalanges (toes) - 2 functions: support weight, lever propel body forward - Tarsus: 7 tarsals

    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.
