Dorsal articular surface - Facies articularis dorsalis

Beschreibung

The dens of axis may be considered as the displaced remnant of the body of atlas. The dens articulates with the ventral arch of atlas and presents:

  • An apex (cranial extremity)
  • A ventral articular surface for articulation with the fovea dentis on the dorsal surface of the ventral arch of the atlas. This surface is confluent with the cranial articular surfaces in horse and ox but separate in other domestic animals.
  • A dorsal articular surface in carnivores and pigs.
