Apophyses - Definition


Definition


Apophyses are the protuding parts of the human body, which attach ligaments to bones and make up part of the joints. In young children, apophyses are composed of cartilage, which transforms progressively into bone by adult age. Every joint has its apophysis. The coracoid apophysis is situated in the scapula, and resembles a beak. The styloid apophysis, in the shape of a spine, is located at the temples.
