Once fused by bone tissue is called what?
Ligament connecting bone to bone is called?
Socket for teeth in maxilla and mandible and has the periodontal ligament is called what?
Where are examples of Interosseous membranes?
Joints held together with very short, interconnecting fibers, and bone edges interlock. Is found only in the skull.
Joint held together by a ligament. Fibrous tissue can vary in length, but is longer than in sutures

What makes up a synovial joint?
Fibrous joint capsule

What is the function of a synovial joint?
To lubricate the surfaces
Provide nutrients and remove wastes from the chondrocytes (Cartilage is avascular)
Contains small amount of phaygocytic cells
Thin film that covers the surfaces of the articular capsule and hyaline cartilage. Is secreted by the synovial membrane and has Hyaluronic acid. The interstitial fluid filtered from plasma is called what?
What kind of ligament lies outside the fibrous capsule?
What is an example of an Extracapsular ligament?
Tibial collateral(medial) and fibular collateral(lateral) ligaments
What kind of ligament lies within the fibrous capsule but are excluded from the synovial cavity by folds of the synovial membrane?
What is an example of an intracapsular ligament?
Anterior and posterior ligaments of the knee
What is inside some synovial joints, pads of fibrocartilage that lie between the articular surfaces of the bones, are attached to the fibrous capsule and allow two bones of different shapes to fit more tightly?
What have saclike structures placed so as to reduce friction, are found where skin and muscles rub over bone, knee and shoulder and resembles joint capsules in that their outer surface is fibrous tissue and the inner surface consists of a synovial membrane that secretes synovial fluid?
Bursa and Tendon sheaths
What is underneath the deltoid muscle?
A structure that retains an organ or tissue in place is called what?
Connective tissue sites where muscle attaches to bone is called what?
The specific site where muscle or ligament attach to bone is called what?
