Example text

Figure 2-17 illustrates the process diagrammatically for the tibia. In the tibia, bone tends to be added to the anteromedial periosteal surface and the pos- ,/ / / I I j m FIGURE 2-17 Diagrammaticrepresentation of the process of bone drift. During growth, the load axis of long bones may change. To compensate for the change in the mechanical loading, as in the tibia, bone is added to the anteromedial periosteal and posterolateral endosteal surface while bone is removed from the anteromedial endosteal surface and the posterolateral periosteal surface.

As the zone of mineralizing cartilage moves away from the initial center of ossification, the bone collar is also growing in both directions and forms the initial compact tissue or shaft of the developing bone. Growth in length is complex. The flared ends of the bone grow not only in length, but also in width. As the flared ends grow, what was formerly part of the metaphysis must be converted to the narrower diaphysis, so that growth in length is accompanied by the removal of bone on the external surface of the metaphysis in the region not involved in active growth (the cutback zone).

In this calcification zone the chondrocytes undergo cell death and release calcium into the surrounding matrix. In the ossification zone the calcified matrix is replaced by spongy bone tissue laid down by osteoblasts. The rate and extent of longitudinal growth in long bones relies on the sequence of events in the growth plate that, in turn, are regulated by local and systemic growth factors, hormones, cytokines and so forth (Goldring and Goldring 1990). Intramembranous ossification is responsible for the formation of the bones of most of the skull and other flat bones, and for increases in the diameter and thickness of long bones.
