- proximale und distale Epiphysenfugen
- Epiphysenfugenschluss
- Tuber calcanei
- Tibiba
- Metakarpus

Tibia? Dickenwachstum


Explanation:
Als Erganzung:

Handelt es sich um einen Schreibfehler bei Tibiba?
Die Ubersetzung fur Tibia = tibia
Dickenwachstum = lateral growth

Eine gute website mit Suche fur englische und deutsche mediz. Begriffe ist das Roche4 Lexikon
