Question #61934
Ligament, the conventional definition says that it is a fibrous connective tissue that connects a bone with another bone but ovarian ligament is a fibrous connective tissue that connects ovaries to the uterus. Is it an exception or ligament is used in a different way in modern day science? Thank you.

ligament is the fibrous connective tissue that connects bones to other bones and is also known as articular ligament, articular larua, fibrous ligament, or true ligament.
Ovarian ligament is a fibrous ligament that connects the ovary to the lateral surface of the uterus.
Different application of ligaments is not an exception. Ligament is just used in different ways.
