  • Humerus
  • Latissimus dorsi: originates on thoracolumbar fascia and inserts on the teres major tuberosity of the humerus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Teres minor: originates on the infra glenoid tubercle on the scapula and inserts on the teres minor tuberosity of the humerus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Deltoid
  • Intrinsic muscles of the thoracic limb: Deltoideus: originates on the acromial process of the scapula and inserts on the deltoid tuberosity. (wikipedia.org)
  • shear force
  • This shear force develops because the canine tibial plateau - the weight-bearing aspect of the joint - is sloped caudally (downwards towards the back of the joint)and there is an acute angle between the tibial plateau slope and the patellar ligament. (wikipedia.org)
  • avulsion
  • In running and jumping movements, extreme contraction of the knee extensors can result in avulsion fractures of the tuberosity apophysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • CrCL
  • The situation is dissimilar to that seen in human athletes where overextension of the joint stretches the CrCL to failure, and replacement of the ligament with a fascial prosthesis has a good prognosis for return to full function. (wikipedia.org)
  • knee-joint
  • The tibial tuberosity thus forms the terminal part of the large structure that acts as a lever to extend the knee-joint and prevents the knee from collapsing when the foot strikes the ground. (wikipedia.org)
