Unit 5 Case Study 1: Hassan’s Story A. Which clue would tell Stefan which scapular surface was anterior and which was posterior? What is the name of the shallow, oval socket of the scapula that Stefan placed next to the humerus? The clue for the anterior surface of the scapula is called the coracoid process, where the tendons of muscles and ligaments attach. The clue for the posterior is a prominent ridge called the spine, which runs diagonally across the posterior surface of the scapula. The shallow, oval socket of the scapula is called the glenoid cavity which articulates with the head of the humerus B. Which bone is Stefan referring to as the “collarbone”? The clavicle bone is known as the “collarbone”. They are s-shaped, long, slender bones that lie horizontally across the anterior part of the thorax superior to the first rib. C. Which surface markings could Stefan use to distinguish the right humerus from the left? Stefan could find the coronoid fossa which would indicate that if it is the right or left due to it only being on the anterior side of the bone. Also by recognizing their landmarks such as the head, deltoid tuberosity, and the olecranon fossa D. Why would Stefan think that an enlarged right deltoid tuberosity might indicate right-handedness? The deltoid tuberosity serves as an attachment for the tendons of the deltoid muscle, when you use one arm and hand much more than the other the bone will make that attachment site stronger to ensure adequate use and reduce the risk of harming that tendon, bone, or muscle E. What is the location of the pubic symphysis Stefan refers to in the story? Then location of the pubic symphysis is between the two hip bones F. Which adaptation would have taken place in the pubic symphysis of the female skeleton during pregnancy in preparation for this birthing process? It is a
