Plural of ligamentum.


(lĭg″ă-mĕn′tŭm) plural.ligamenta [L., a band]

ligamentum arteriosum

In the adult, the cord-like remnant of the fetal ductus arteriosus between the left pulmonary artery and the arch of the aorta. Just after birth, the ductus arteriosus constricts and begins to fill with endothelial cells, and within a few months the ductus arteriosus is completely closed. For the remainder of one's life, the closed duct remains as a connecting cord attaching the two large outflow arteries of the heart.

ligamentum flavum

A ligament that binds adjacent vertebral laminae to each other.

ligamentum teres

In the adult, the closed remnant of the fetal umbilical vein. It runs inside the free edge of the falciform ligament from the underside of the umbilicus to the liver.
