  • Bone Formation

    living creature has gone through ossification, or in other words bone formation. A different word that is also used interchangeably with ossification is osteogenesis. These words mean the beginning of bone formation (Marieb & Hoenh, 2016, p.183). From the placenta the human body begins to prepare bone tissues for the future of its development. The normal bone goes through a long process of construction. Once a child is born its bones start forming and growing until early adulthood this is called endochondral ossification. A five step example for endochondral ossification in the long bone is: (1)First, bone cartilage forms around the diaphysis of the hyaline cartilage model. Second, cartilage in the center of the diaphysis calcifies,…

  • Bone Structure

    functions of the limbs of each of the animals illustrated the same or different? The functions of the limbs of each of the animals are all different because each animal has adapted to their own environment which result in various adaptations. Even humans, whales, crocodiles, cats, birds, and bats all differ drastically on the biological spectrum, they share many of the same bones and limbs. For example, using the human as a comparison, the other animals also share some semblance of having a…

  • Osteoblasts In Bone Formation

    development the first stage of the “bones” is cartilage which resembles bones but is more flexible due to the lack of calcium salts as it develops calcium salts are deposit into it all through until after it is born to life. As a result, the process of gradual replacement of immature bone cells and calcium deposits is called Ossification. 2. What are the roles of Osteoclasts in bone formation? The roles of Osteoclasts in bone formation are as follows, the suffix –clast is from the Greek word…

  • Metastatic Bone Disease

    Metastatic bone disease is explained by Mercadante (1997) as disease that develops when there is abnormal metabolism within the bone with increased osteoclast activity. Patients with bone metastasis often present with pain, they are also at an increased risk of hypercalcaemia, fractures and in some cases metastatic spinal cord compression, all of which compromise the patient's functional status, quality of life, and survival. Clinicians should utilise the World Health Organization analgesic…

  • Oxytocin Vs Bone

    Abstract Due to oxytocin’s impact on bone restoration in maternal skeletons, it has been discovered that the same concept is not limited to pregnant women. Research has led scientists to believe that there is a wide range of uses for the oxytocin hormone with their role being heavily relied on by the aid of bone metabolism in osteoporosis. Osteoporosis results in a decrease of bone metabolism from a decrease in bone density and bone mass. Numerous studies have suggested that a link between…

  • Osteoporosis: Bone Disease

    million Americans are diagnosed with this disease. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that cutbacks bone mass. The bones become very brittle and frail and are unable to support your weight and usually fracture. The bones that are most likely to fracture are your hips, spine, wrist, shoulder and hip. The bones could become so weak that even if you were to cough or bend over they would fracture. As you grow your bones make new bone and get rid of old bone. When your body, at a young age, makes new…

  • Bone Remodeling

    Micro-fracture consolidation can be treated with bone remodeling, and the adaptation of skeleton is applied to “calcium homeostasis” and to mechanical use. The bone remodeling involves the bone resorption regarding to osteoclasts and bone formation relating to osteoblasts. Regular bone-related diseases including “bone-metastasized cancers”, Paget’s disease, multiple myeloma, and osteoporosis are caused by the disproportion between the resorption and formation processes. The increased…

  • Osteoporosis: Common Bone Disease

    This letter is to provide you with more information about osteoporosis, calcium and vitamin D. Osteoporosis is a common bone disease that causes progressive loss of bone density. This causes the bones to become thin and weak, which increases the chances of falling. It is recommended to consume foods and/or supplements containing calcium and vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis. Calcium is the mineral that helps strengthen your bones and vitamin D helps calcium be better absorbed in the body. It…

  • Bone Scan Case Study

    Context Bone scans are used to detect abnormalities in the bone due to its uptake in osteoblasts (Ka kit, W. and Morand, P. 2013). Patients who have bone scans are instructed not to adjust their diet prior to having a bone scan. Patients who are already booked for bone scans can be given supplements prior to their scan date and then scanned. Normal bone scans as well as scans of patients who had been on bone supplements which are of a similar body habitus will be given to radiologists who won’t…

  • Breaking A Bone Research Paper

    Breaking a bone can arguably be one of the most painful things that could happen to someone. It is not even the physical part of breaking a bone that is the worst, in my own opinion, I feel like it is the aftermath. You cannot shower without getting the cast wet. If it is a bone in the lower half of your body, so you have to use crutches to get around. You are unable to get the itch under your cast unless you use a metal coat hanger, which is highly frowned upon as you can get an infection if…
