  • 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,…

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • Compare And Contrast Bone Growth And Remodeling

    -The Skeletal System 1. Explain how and when bone is remodeled. Include the cells and hormones involved in the process. • Bone remodeling is essentially a lifelong process. The mature bone tissue is removed and replaced the new bone tissue. This promotes healthy bones and can also reshape the bones from injuries like fractures. Osteoblasts secrete new bone tissue while osteoclasts break down the old bone tissues. The body signals the correct amount of growth through parathyroid and growth…

  • Zygomatic Bone Case Study

    1.1 Introduction: The incidence of zygomatic complex fracture is relatively high. A thorough understanding of the diagnosis and the surgical principles are of critical importance. The zygomatic bone provides the facial appearance, through its cheek prominence. This prominence plays an important role in the protection of the eye. Moreover, the zygomatic bone acts as a strong buttress for the absorption and transmission of masticatory forces to the base of skull. Therefore, the optimum reduction…
