What are the finger-like projection at the distal end of the uterine tube that receive the oocyte called?
The Infundibulum. The end closest to the ovary forms an expanded funnel, or infundibulum, with numerous fingerlike projections that extend into the pelvic cavity. The projecti…ons are called fimbriae. Fimbriae drape over the surface of the ovary, but there is no physical connection between the two structures.
The anterior end of a pigs stomach is called the cardiac stomach because it lies next to the diaphragm, just below the heart. Because the heart lies within the cardiac r…egion, that part of the stomach was named so that it would be helpful in identifying the placement of the stomach within the animals body.
The stomach ends at the pyloric sphincter. On the other side of the sphincter is the small intestine. It has three parts and they are, in order, duodenum, jejunum, and ileum. …Then there is another sphincter called the ileocecal sphincter. This then leads into the first part of the colon called the cecum. It is sometimes referred to as a blind pouch because the entrance into the cecum is from behind. Underneath the cecum is the vermiform appendix, which is most often just called the appendix. Then the next part is the ascending colon which makes a turn to the left at the hepatic flexure and turns into the transverse colon. At the upper left side of the abdomen, the colon makes another change of direction downward at the splenic flexure and is now called the descending colon. The next turn it makes goes deeper into the abdomen and is called the sigmoid flexure which marks the beginning of the sigmoid colon. It then makes a downward turn and becomes the rectum which leads to the anal canal and finally the anus. The anus has two sphincters, the internal anal sphincter which is involuntary, and the external anal sphincter which is under voluntary control.
The distal end of a neuron is the axon, an extension that arises from the soma (cell body), and at the distal end of an axon there are extensions called telodendria. At the di…stal ends of telodendria are knoblike structures called synaptic end bulbs (sometimes called synaptic knobs). Synaptic end bulbs have synaptic vesicles inside them that contain neurotransmitters. Synaptic vesicles are released by exocytosis into the synaptic cleft for diffusion. I can't tell from the way your question is worded if you're asking about axons, telodenria or synaptic end bulbs because all of these structures are at the distal end of a neuron. Determine what the function of the "extensions" is and use whichever part of my answer applies.
Boxer's fracture is a break of the distal end of the fifth metacarpal What do the rest of us call it?
The knuckle of the little finger
They are called receptors
The small intestine.
The distal ends of the tibia and fibula are the malleoli (singular malleolus). The tibia has the medial malleolus, and the fibula has the lateral malleolus.
The heart is SUPERIOR to the stomach...ABOVE... Distal usually only applies to the appendages, or limbs. The hand is distal to the elbow. The foot is distal to the ankle. Dist…al might give you partial credit for some answers but when you are dealing with the torso you will want to use SUPERIOR or INFERIOR.
Epiphyses is the word used for the distal and proximal ends of long bones. The epiphysis contains red bone marrow.

The distal ends of the tibia and fibula are the malleoli (singular malleolus). These are familiar as the bumps at your ankle.
