the human body. The mechanical properties of bone tissues must be considered as very hard and lightweight material. Mechanical behavior of bone can be explained using composite method. Bone tissues are structural and supportive tissues of the body system. It is actually made up of the composite material which is the calcium phosphate in termed of hydroxyapatite that give bone their rigidity…

A fall injuries are common in elderly throughout the life span, but the importance of a fall event depends on the person's age. Young children fall frequently but they only suffer injuries with bruises and bumps while for elderly they result in fractures, lacerations, sprains, dislocations and subdural hematomas. However, falls in elderly can also result in serious injuries or even death. Today, the risk managers take a more positive contact by raising alertness that put staffs at…
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…
Osteoporosis is the gradual process in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. They become less dense as tissue is lost and become weak and more prone to fractures. This may be due to a variety of factors and usually occurs during old age. Women are more susceptible to the development of osteoporosis. Women are more susceptible to developing osteoporosis, women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis in their lifetime.

by anomalous metabolic processes contagions and malignancies result in metastasis in the skeletal tissue. The most frequent organ affected by metastases besides lung and liver is bone. Most of of these metastases are caused by breast or prostate carcinoma. Majority of patients with metastatic conditions develop bone metastases that further leads to a pronounced morbidity and mortality as a result of skeletal-related events (SREs) which generally include hypercalcemia due to malignancy,…

ANT4525L - Killgrove
December 3, 2014
Many of the medical skeletons that are used for analysis in ANT4525L: Human Osteology come from the Middle East region. They range in how old the bodies were at death to how old they have been deceased and skeletonized. Upon first displaying medical skeleton number four in anatomical order, it was clear that this skeleton was in a better condition than the other skeletons that were assigned. The body had a whiter tint to…
Titanium bones are the implants that doctors use when a bone is broken to badly to heal naturally. The natural way for a bone to heal is in a cast and take time for the bone to heal but titanium implants help the bones that can not do that. Titanium is used in the body because it is lightweight, sturdy and it would last long because it is durable. Titanium bones have been worn away with time especially at the hip and elbow joints but scientist are working on a way for titanium bones to become a…
Every 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…
1. Describe Ossification during Fetal Development.
During the fetal 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…
