Sample text

Proximally, the humerus articulates with the glenoid fossa of the scapula forming the shoulder joint, and dis tally with the radius and ulna forming the elbow joint (Fig. 5). Upper end of the humerus The major feature, proximally, is the head of the humerus with its smooth, rounded articular surface facing upwards, medially and backwards. It is almost hemispherical, being considerably larger than the socket formed by the glenoid fossa. The head is joined to the upper end by the anatomical neck, a slightly constricted region encircling the bone at the articular margin, separating it from the tubercles.

Consequently, damage to it will result in some trauma to the limb. At the beginning of the second month the elbow and knee prominences can be seen projecting laterally and backwards. At about the same time, the hand and foot plates appear as flattened expansions at the end of the limb bud. Between 36 and 38 days, five radiating thickenings forming the fingers and toes can be distinguished. The webs between the thickenings disappear freeing the digits. Appropriate spinal nerves grow down to the limbs; C5, 6, 7, 8 and T l for the upper limb, and L4, 5, S I , 2 and 3 for the lower limb.

The heaping up is due mainly to a medial and backward migration of actively proliferating ectodermal cells which spread laterally and forward between the ectoderm and endoderm layers as intra-embryonic mesoderm (Fig. 2c). At the lateral extremes of this migration, the mesodermal cells become continuous with the extra-embryonic mesoderm (splanchnopleuric) covering the yolk sac and that covering the amnion (somatopleuric). Anteriorly, the embryonic mesodermal cells become continuous across the midline in front of the prochordal plate.
