Victor was found by doctors who examined him last week to have suffered past injuries including a broken arm and clavicle.
And the clavicle alone, Berger says, would have electrified the world of paleoanthropology.
In Armadillos, Sloths, and Megatheriidae, the acromion is very long and the clavicle is well developed.
This is met with chiefly in the humerus and in the clavicle.
In the case of the first dorsal nerve, it may be necessary temporarily to resect the clavicle.
The clavicle is well developed, and the radius and ulna are never united.
Vestiges of the precoracoid occur at each end of the clavicle.
These simple fractures of the clavicle are of no great consequence.
In rare cases the fracture passes into the acromio-clavicular joint, and is associated with dislocation of the clavicle.
There are fourteen dorsal vertebrae; the clavicle is absent.
"collarbone," 1610s, from Middle French clavicule "collarbone" (16c.), also "small key," from Medieval Latin clavicula "collarbone" (used c.980 in a translation of Avicenna), special use of classical Latin clavicula, literally "small key, bolt," diminutive of clavis "key" (see slot (n.2)); in the anatomical sense a loan-translation of Greek kleis "key, collarbone." So called supposedly from its function as the "fastener" of the shoulder. Related: Clavicular.
clavicle clav·i·cle (klāv'ĭ-kəl)
Either of two slender bones that extend from the manubrium of the sternum to the acromion of the scapula. Also called collarbone.
