A name given to fibrous structures, which serve to unite bones, and to form articulations; hence the division into interosseous and articular ligaments. They are of a white, close texture; are but little extensible, and difficult to break. The name ligament has, also, been given to any membranous fold, which retains an organ in its situation.
