5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. central canals contain
  2. endochondral ossification 1/2
  3. interstitial growth
  4. types of bone (6)
  5. spinal disorder (kyphotic)
  1. a blood vessels, lymphatic vessels & nerves
  2. b 1. Cancellous (Spongy) Bone - inside bone
    2. Compact Bone - outside
    3. Long Bones - femur, tibia & humerous
    4. Short Bones - carpals, tarsals
    5. Flat Bones - skull, sternum
    6. Irregular Bones - pelvis
  3. c thoracic curve (hunchback)
  4. d 1. Most bones develop this process
    2. Formation of primary ossification center and marrow cavity in shaft of model
    a. Bony collar developed by osteoblasts
    b. Chondrocytes swell and die
    c. Stem cells give rise to osteoblasts and clasts
    d. Bone laid down and marrow cavity created

    epiphysis - needs to be remodeled (reshaped)
    bone grows on the outside and then an inner layer disappears by osteoclasts. this is so the bones don't get too heavy
  5. e growth in length

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 1. Bones grow in length at epiphyseal plate
    2. Bones grow in diameter by the combined action of osteoclasts and osteoblasts
    3. Osteoclasts enlarge the diameter of the medullary cavity
    4. Osteoblasts from the periosteum build new bone around the outside of the bone
    5. Bone formation = bone destruction in early to middle years
    6. Remodeling activity important in homeostasis of blood calcium levels.
    7. Remodeling occurs throughout life

    women stop growing around the time of the start of their period, in case they get pregnant. don't want to compete w/baby for calcium.
    males have denser bones
  2. bone cell (mature bone cells)

    Maintains matrix
  3. bone marrow
  4. layers, rings, aka matrix
  5. 1. Osteoblasts - not trapped by matrix (under endosteum or periosteum
    2. Osteocytes - trapped by matrix
    3. Osteoclasts - break down
    a. Multinucleated
    breaks down matrix thru lysosome (which breaks down enzymes)

    If you break bone you can rebuild matrix

5 True/False questions

  1. Factors affecting bone growth (8)1. Deficiency of Vitamin A - retards bone development
    2. Deficiency of Vitamin C - results in fragile bones (collagen/fiber in connective tissue)
    3. Deficiency of Vitamin D - rickets, osteomalacia - softening of bones, vit D makes bones solid
    4. Insufficient Growth Hormone - dwarfism
    5. Excessive Growth Hormone - gigantism (beofre fusion), acromegaly (after bone fusion)
    6. Insufficient Thyroid Hormone - delays bone growth
    7. Sex Hormones - promote bone formation; stimulate ossification of epiphyseal plates
    8. Physical Stress - stimulates bone growth (b/c of remodeling)


  2. osteoblastbone forming cell
    Builds matrix


  3. repair of fractures 2/21. Fracture tears and destroys blood vessels that carry nutrients to osteocytes
    2. Vascular damage initiates repair sequence
    3. Callus - specialized repair tissue that binds the broken ends of the fracture together
    4. Rapidly growing callus tissue effectively collars broken ends and stabilizes fracture so healing can proceed.


  4. lacunaeinside


  5. spinal disorder (lordosis)thoracic curve (hunchback)
