In the ox and the sheep, the condyle is lower than the trochlea, but only very little lower.
We have just said that the trochlea is continuous without interruption with the condyles; this is accurate.
It articulates with the tibia by a trochlea that occupies not only the superior surface, but also the anterior.
There is another modification in regard to the prominence and extent of the two lips of the trochlea.
It articulates with the external portion of the trochlea, while the ulna articulates with the internal portion.
The internal lip of the trochlea is much thicker and much more prominent than the external.
The Knee Joint is a hinge formed by the condyles and trochlea of the femur, the patella, and the head of the tibia.
The trochlea (fig. 77, 5) at the distal end of the bone is a pulley-like surface, elevated at the sides and grooved in the middle.
In the human skeleton, the internal lip of the trochlea descends lower than the external; and also lower than the condyle.
The proximal end articulates with the trochlea, the distal end with the bones of the carpus.
trochlea troch·le·a (trŏk'lē-ə)
n. pl. troch·le·ae (-lē-ē')
An anatomical structure that resembles a pulley, especially the part of the distal end of the humerus that articulates with the ulna.
A fibrous loop in the eye socket near the nasal process of the frontal bone, through which the tendon of the superior oblique muscle of the eye passes.
