  • Achondroplasia Case Study

    Introduction The predominant disease that mutant FGFR3 (fibroblast growth factor receptor 3) gene causes is Achondroplasia. Furthermore, Achondroplasia means the absence of chondrocyte formation in bones. Additionally, the transformation of chondrocytes into bone cells is prevalent in the limbs as well as the facial bones of humans (1). Therefore, the predominant symptom of Achondroplasia is bone growth retardation and is found in the limbs as well as facial bones. The majority of people…

    (Physeal Injuries) Traction epiphyses, or apophyses, are located at the site of attachment of major muscle tendons to bone and are subjected primarily to tensile forces. (Physeal Injuries) Apophyses contribute to bone shape but not to longitudinal growth. (Physeal Injuries) Longitudinal growth, which occurs during childhood and adolescence, occurs at the growth plates where cartilage proliferates in the epiphyseal and metaphyseal areas of long bones, before undergoing mineralization to form…
