Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy

Descriptive anatomy comprises a detailed account of the numerous organs of which the body is formed, especially with reference to their out­ward form, their internal structure, the mutual relations they bear to each other, and the successive conditions they present during their development. Surgical Anatomy is, to the student of medicine and surgery, the most essential branch of anatomical science, having reference more especially to an accurate know­ledge of the more important regions, and consisting in the application of anatomy generally to the practice of surgery.

Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy of the Spine

Osteology. The Spine is a flexuous column, formed of a series of bones called Vertebra. The Vertebrae are divided into true and false. The true vertebrae are twenty-four in number, and have received the names cervical, dorsal, and lumbar, according to the position which they occupy; seven being found in the cervical region, twelve in the dorsal, and five in the lumbar. The false vertebrae, nine in number, are firmly united, so as to form two bones —five entering into the formation of the upper bone or sacrum, and four into the terminal bone of the spine or coccyx.

Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy Osteology

In the construction of the human body, it would appear essential, in the first place, to provide some dense and solid texture capable of giving support and attachment to the softer parts of the frame, and at the same time to protect in closed cavities the more important vital organs; and such a structure we find provided in the various bones, which form what is called the Skeleton.

Descriptive and Surgical Anatomy Tibia Fibula

Osteology of Tibia/fibula
The Tibia is situated at the anterior und inner side of the leg, and, excepting the femur, is the longest and largest bone in the skeleton. It is pris-moid in form, expanded above, where it enters into formation with the knee joint, and more slightly below. In the male, its direction is vertical, and parallel with the bone of the opposite Bide, but in the female it has a slight oblique direction downwards and outwards, to compensate for the oblique direction of the femur inwards. It presents for exami­nation a shaft and two extre­mities.
The Fibula is situated at the outer side of the leg. It is the smaller of the two bones, and, in proportion to its length, the most slender of all the long bones; it is placed nearly parallel with the tibia, its lower extremity inclining a little forwards, so as to be on a plane anterior to that of the upper end. It presents for examination a shaft and two extremities.
