By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A mixed articulation, in which the corresponding surfaces of bones are 'united in an intimate manner by an intermediate body, which allows, however, of some slight motion. Such is the junction of the bodies of the vertebrae by means of the intervertebral cartilages. This articulation has also been called Diarthrose de Continuite. The motion it permits is but slight.
By Robley Dunglison
By Willam Alexander Newman Dorland
A form of articulation intermediate between diarthrosis and synarthrosis, in which the articulating bony surfaces are separated by an elastic substance to which both are attached, so that the mobility is slight, but may be exerted in all directions. The articulations of the bodies of the vertebrae are examples. [Gr.]
