Describe any two types of cartilaginous joint with examples

Dear Student

Types of cartilagenous Joints:

1. Synchondrosis is a cartilaginous joint where the bones are joined by hyaline cartilage. For example: between the anterior end of a rib and the costal cartilage of the thoracic cage.

2. Symphysis is the second type of cartilaginous joint where the bones are joined by fibrocartilage. For example: the pubic portions of the right and left hip bones of the pelvis. It is also found between adjacent vertebrae.
