Difference between Femur and Tibia

Femur vs. Tibia

The femur (pl. femurs or femora) or thigh bone, is the most proximal (closest to the hip joint) bone of the leg in tetrapod vertebrates capable of walking or jumping, such as most land mammals, birds, many reptiles including lizards, and amphibians such as frogs. The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.

Similarities between Femur and Tibia

Femur and Tibia have 19 things in common (in Unionpedia): Anterior cruciate ligament, Biceps femoris muscle, Bone, Diaphysis, Epiphysis, Intercondylar area, Joint, Knee, Leg, Long bone, Lower extremity of femur, Medial collateral ligament, Medial condyle of tibia, Ossification center, Patella, Popliteus muscle, Posterior cruciate ligament, Tetrapod, Tibia.

Anterior cruciate ligament

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of a pair of cruciate ligaments (the other being the posterior cruciate ligament) in the human knee.

Epiphysis

The epiphysis is the rounded end of a long bone, at its joint with adjacent bone(s).

Intercondylar area

The intercondylar area is the separation between the medial and lateral condyle on the upper extremity of the tibia.

Joint

A joint or articulation (or articular surface) is the connection made between bones in the body which link the skeletal system into a functional whole.

Knee

The knee joins the thigh with the leg and consists of two joints: one between the femur and tibia (tibiofemoral joint), and one between the femur and patella (patellofemoral joint).

Lower extremity of femur

The lower extremity of femur (or distal extremity) is the lower end of the thigh bone in human and other animals, closer to the knee.

Medial collateral ligament

The medial collateral ligament (MCL), or tibial collateral ligament (TCL), is one of the four major ligaments of the knee.

Medial condyle of tibia

The medial condyle is the medial portion of the upper extremity of tibia.

Ossification center

The first step in ossification of the cartilage is that the cartilage cells, at the point where ossification is commencing and which is termed as an ossification center, enlarge and arrange themselves in rows.

Patella

The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a thick, circular-triangular bone which articulates with the femur (thigh bone) and covers and protects the anterior articular surface of the knee joint.

Popliteus muscle

The popliteus muscle in the leg is used for unlocking the knees when walking, by laterally rotating the femur on the tibia during the closed chain portion of the gait cycle (one with the foot in contact with the ground).

Posterior cruciate ligament

The posterior cruciate ligament (or PCL) is one of the four major ligaments of the knee.

Tetrapod

The superclass Tetrapoda (from Greek: τετρα- "four" and πούς "foot") contains the four-limbed vertebrates known as tetrapods; it includes living and extinct amphibians, reptiles (including dinosaurs, and its subgroup birds) and mammals (including primates, and all hominid subgroups including humans), as well as earlier extinct groups.

Tibia

The tibia (plural tibiae or tibias), also known as the shinbone or shankbone, is the larger, stronger, and anterior (frontal) of the two bones in the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it connects the knee with the ankle bones.
