Example text

9 Surface of a trimmed plastic block showing a fairly uniform trabecular network 17 • Spongy, cancellous, trabecular bone, sometimes also known as ossicles: The axial skeleton (cranium, vertebral column, thorax and pelvis) has a specialised construction. At first glance, the trabeculae appear to be randomly distributed, but closer inspection reveals that they are oriented precisely along the lines of stress and weight-bearing (“trajection lines”), producing sponge-like and lattice-like structures (Fig.

9). The more closely the trabecular “nodes” are spaced, the greater the stability and strength of the bone, while the trabecular plates dominate the elastic properties of the trabecular bone. Cortical bone has three surfaces and each has different anatomic features: • The endosteal envelope faces the marrow cavity and comprises a high surface area and therefore supports a high bone turnover. • The periosteal envelope, the outer surface of the bone to which the tendons, ligaments and muscles are attached, is capable of remodelling as is the intracortical surface.

OPG could represent a novel pathway for possible therapeutic manipulation of bone remodelling. Specific aspects of remodelling involve specific factors, as for example, the impact of VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) in angiogenesis and endochondral bone formation, in ossification of mandibular condyles and in the growth of the long bones. • Vitamins and minerals: The bone cells as well as the surrounding cell systems are also influenced by various vitamins, minerals and other factors. Vitamins D, K, C, B6 and A are all required for the normal metabolism of collagen and for mineralisation of osteoid.
