Various terms in orthopedics are formed using or incorporating the name of native bones and these terms then describe a clinical entity or a procedure. The term thus created, however, may or may not be directly related to the bone associated. There are a few interesting examples of such terms that are encountered in the orthopedic literature. A short recollection of those few notable terms that have the name of a known bone within their terminology is described here for general reading and knowledge.
