JOINTS-FIBROUS, PRIMARY, SECONDARY

1. Fibrous joints - surfaces joined by fibrous tissue (sutures of the skull, tib/fib).

2. Primary cartilagenous joint - where bone and cartilage meet (this includes all epiphyses).

3. Secondary cartilagenous joint - union between bones whose articular surfaces are covered by a thin lamina of hyaline cartilage.

4. The hyaline lamina are united by fibrocartilage, which contains a cavity with joint fluid and without a synovial membrane lining (pubic symphysis, sternal angle joints, intervertebral discs).
