(1) The transverse process of the seventh vertebra may be bifid, and occasionally the costal process is replaced by a cervical rib.(2) If the lumbar vertebra is completely anterior to the sacral base, spondylolisthesis has occurred.(3) Males possess a larger spine on the first vertebra behind the pelvic girdle.(4) A fracture of the transverse process of a lumbar vertebra may damage the ureter.(5) The ventral keel is partially broken, but is observed to vanish near the middle of the ventral surface of the vertebra .(6) she crushed a vertebra in a fall at Chepstow(7) This is between bone and bone, as between the spinal vertebrae , or above and below a joint.(8) The somites give rise to the vertebrae , to the muscles of the trunk and limbs, and to the dermis of the skin.(9) The spine is made up of 24 bones called vertebrae , plus the sacrum and coccyx.(10) Many arterial branches arise from the vertebral and basilar artery to supply the medulla oblongata and the pons.(11) An abdominal film showed multiple vertebral anomalies in the sacrum.(12) In contrast to the cervical vertebral centra, the dorsal centrum is shorter and more mildly opisthocoelous.(13) Another of the positions is keeping the back straight and erect, with the vertebrae of the spinal column in a straight line.(14) The entire neural spine and arch of the first two vertebrae of this series are exposed.(15) In Brachycephalus, there is a dermal bony shield that ossifies dorsal to the vertebrae .(16) The other pairs form joints with those of adjoining vertebrae and provide attachment for muscles and ligaments.
