Why Multiple Choice Questions on Upper Limb Anatomy?

Upper limb bones are the first one to be studied in anatomy classes. Upper limb has a total of 64 bones. A thorough knowledge about the features of the bones and their attachments acts as the basis of medical practice.

It is good to read the details of the bones before and after the dissection classes to retain the memory. Answering mcqs is one of the ways to study bones, their borders, surfaces and attachments.

deltoid

trapezius

sternocleidomastoid

pectoralis major

Answer: sternocleidomastoid

Cleidocranial dysostosis is a disease in which clavicles are imperfectly developed.

Here the shoulders droop and can be approximated anteriorly in front of the chest.

The weakest point in clavicle is the junction between the two curvatures of the bone and it is the commonest site of fracture.

coracobrachialis

long head of biceps

long head of triceps

pectoralis minor

-----------------------------------------

Answer: long head of biceps

One of the following muscles arises from the infra glenoid tubercle of the scapula

coracobrachialis

long head of biceps

long head of triceps

pectoralis minor

-----------------------------------------

Answer: long head of triceps

One of the following muscles is NOT attached to the medial border of the scapula

levator scapulae

rhomboideus minor

rhomboideus major

teres major

-----------------------------------------

Answer: teres major

The scapula ossifies from one primary centre and seven secondary centers.

Paralysis of the serrator anterior causes “winging “of the scapula. The medial border of the bone becomes prominent resulting in the restricted abduction of the arm. The arm cannot be abducted beyond 90 degrees.

Scaphoid scapula is a developmental anomaly where the medial border of the scapula is concave.
