Clavicle: bone linking the scapula and sternum
Source: WordNet 2.1
Clavicle: The clavicle is a long curved bone that helps to form the shoulder and the pectoral girdle by articulating with the scapula. There is one pair of clavicles located in the upper outer portions of the chest above the first rib in the lower collar area. The clavicle also articulates with the sternum. The clavicle facilitates movement of the shoulder and serves to hold the scapula and humerus away from the thorax. The clavicle has many attachment points for muscles and ligaments and also provides some protection from trauma.
The clavicle is a part of the appendicular skeleton. Conditions that can afflict the clavicle include trauma, fracture, infection, dislocation and osteolysis.
