  • Osteoporosis Case Studies

    Cartilage provides a smooth surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. Deterioration of cartilage can lead to degeneration in the joint, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. Causes Genetics: Certain genetic factors can increase a person’s risk of developing osteoarthritis. One possibility is a rare defect in collagen production. Collagen is a protein that makes up cartilage. This abnormality can cause osteoarthritis…

  • The Role Of Bones In The Human Skeletal System

    vertebral column and thoracic cage. Additionally, the appendicular skeleton consists of one hundred and twenty six bones that are part of the pectoral girdle, pelvic girdle, upper and lower limbs. Bones are connected to joints, ligaments, tendons and cartilage, which makes up the human skeletal system. The skeletal system has three major functions, which include, support, protection, and movement. Although all adults contain the same amount of bones in the body, males and females have a slight…

  • Musculoskeletal Dysfunctions Research Paper

    The articular cartilage has viscoelastic properties. This unique feature allows articular cartilage to carry out its functions, to absorb the compressive load and transmit it to the subchondral bone (Sophia Fox et al., 2009). Excessive loading on cartilage can damage the extracellular matrix and increase catabolic activity (Sun, 2010). Moreover, bone in the osteoarthritic stage has lower modulus to absorb the forces, and transfer the load back to cartilage (Leng et al., 2013). This vicious…

  • Synovial Joint Case Studies

    consists of a joint capsule, a joint cavity and a layer of cartilage over the ends of two joining bones. These joints are lined with synovial fluid. The articular cartilage over the joint ends absorbs jolts as it acts like elastic and it also provides a smooth surface for the joints to move frictionlessly. This fluid also helps in lubricating and protecting the bones. Cartilage is softer and much more flexible than a bone. The major role of cartilage is to form a model for later growth of the…

  • Compare And Contrast Bone Growth And Remodeling

    periosteum transform causing the osteoblasts to produce woven bone. This forms with the fibroblasts which forms hyaline cartilage and connects the two sides of the fracture. The gap is bridged and strength is gained. Hyaline cartilage is replaced by lamellar bone, some of the woven bone remains. The hyaline cartilage contains micro vessels and multiple osteoblasts. Hyaline cartilage is the replaced by trabecular bone and most of the original strength is…

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Endoscopic

    over the traditional one. It has many benefits such as magnification, suboptimal view of middle turbinate, better illumination and visualization. Separation of collagenous fibers connecting the perichondrium and periostium to underlying bone and cartilage is made visible with endoscope during surgical dissection. Mucosal disruptions are recognized immediately, and their size may be controlled using careful and meticulous dissection. Iidocaine and epinephrine are used to minimise bleeding and a…

  • Bone Remodeling Process Analysis

    Analyze the bone remodeling process and the minerals involved in that process. Distinguish among the twelve common bone markings and provide examples of in which bones and locations those markings are found. Condyle- it is a large rounded prominence fitting into a fossa. This type of bone marking is a process that forms joints forming i.e. the medial condyle of the femur (Mid Lands Tech, 2016). Crest- it is slightly risen with protruded ridges. This type of bone marking is a process to attach…

  • Ossification In Fetal Development Essay

    their life. Ossification is the gradual replacement of cartilage and its intercellular substance by bone cells that are immature, and calcium deposits. • What are the roles of Osteoclasts and bone formation? Osteoclasts are large cells that have the function of reabsorbing bony tissue. They digest bone tissue from the inner sides of bones, which enlarges the…

    They promote movement all having a synovial capsule that has a collagenous structure surrounding the joint, a synovial membrane that is in the inner layer of the capsule secretes synovial fluid and hyaline cartilage acting as pads on the ends of the articulating bones. There are 6 types of synovial joints this includes: hinge (i.e. the elbow and knee), pivot (i.e. between the first and second cervical vertebrae), ball and socket (i.e. shoulder and hip), saddle…
