WHAT DOES ODONTOID PROCESS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

odontoid process

Axis (anatomy)

In anatomy, the second cervical vertebra of the spine is named the axis or epistropheus. It forms the pivot upon which the first cervical vertebra, which carries the head, rotates. The most distinctive characteristic of this bone is the strong odontoid process known as the dens which rises perpendicularly from the upper surface of the body. That peculiar feature gives to the vertebra a rarely used third name: vertebra dentata. In some judicial hangings the odontoid process may break and hit the medulla oblongata, causing death.

Definition of odontoid process in the English dictionary
