Histo Lecture 10 II

  1. Intramembranous Ossification is responsible for formation of for:
    • Bone healing
    • Growth of flat bones (i.e. skulls, carpals, tarsals)
    • Thickening of long bones
  2. What are the steps of osteoblasts in intramembranous ossification?
    • Osteoblasts secrete organic matrix (osteoid)
    • Osteoblasts then directly mineralize the matrix with hydroxyapatite crystals
    • Once surrounded by calcified matrix, osteoblasts become osteocytes
  3. Osteoblasts are formed by differentiation of cells of the:
    Periosteum and endosteum or bone marrow stem cells (mesenchyme)
  4. What function do chondrocytes perform?
    Produce cartilage and calcify the matrix
  5. Where do osteoblasts deposit bone matrix (osteoid)?
    Over the pre-existing cartilage matrix
  6. Function of osteoblasts/osteocytes
    Remove remnants of cartilage matrix resulting in typical bone matrix
  7. Endochostral ossification is responsible for
    • Growth of long bones
    • Bone healing
  8. Area of normal hyaline cartilage and chondrocytes
    Resting zone
  9. Area of intestine mitosis (proliferation) of chondrocytes
    Proliferative zone
  10. What happens in the Hypertrophic Zone?
    • Area of chondrocyte hypertrophy due to glycogen uptake
    • Cartilage ECM is partially resorbed
    • Remnants appear as septa of matrix material between hypertrophic chondrocytes
  11. What happens in the Calcified cartilage zone?
    • Thin septa of cartilage matrix become calicified
    • Chondrocytes in this zone die after matrix calcification
  12. The Ossification zone is in charge of being
    • The osteoprogenitor cells from the bone marrow are delivered to the calcified cartilage
    • -Osteoprogenitor cells differentiate into osteoblasts
  13. Osteoblasts deposit bone matrix over calcified cartilage matrix
  14. Following ossification, the _____ cartilage is resorbed, leaving a calcified bone matrix, which is ______ bone tissue
    old; "true"
  15. Overall, the thickness of the _________ _______ does not change as that rate of bone production and cartilage growth are equal at opposite ends.
    Epiphyseal plate
  16. Endochondral ossification during fetal development is a ______ process
  17. Bone under goes ________ remodeling througout life.
  18. Bone remodeling is dependent on ________ placed on bones
    stresses (forces)
  19. Stresses placed on bones affect:
    Deposition and resorption
  20. State Wolff's Law
    Every change in form and function of bone, or in its function alone, is followed by certain, definite changes in its internal architecture and external form.
  21. Describe the process of how bones are repaired from a fracture
    • Damaged blood vessels produce a localized clot
    • Clot material is later removed by macrophages
    • Periosteum and Endosteum repond with intense proliferation of cells
    • Periosteal/endosteal fibroblasts differentiate into chondroblasts and hyaline cartilage model = soft callus
    • Mesenchyme cells differentiate into osteoblasts and form osteoid
    • Endochondral and intramembranous ossification occur to form primary (woven) bone = hard callus
    • Hard callus is replaced by lamellar bone
  22. Healing Time Table
    • Soft callous - 2 wks
    • Hard callous - 4 wks
    • Lamellar bone - 6 wks
  23. Does stress affect healing bone?
    Yes. Healing bone is influenced by stresses placed upon it during the healing process
  24. How does inactivity affect bones?
    • Inactivity or decreased loading of bone results in reduced osteoblast activity but does not affect osteoclast activity
    • Overall result is increased degradation of bone and increase in serum CA++ levels
  25. What 3 qualities of bone change with increased loading?
    • Hypertrophy of bone
    • ↑ bone mass/density
    • ↑ load to failure (strength)
  26. Repetitive loading on bone creates:
    microscopic deformities
  27. What aides the bone healing process?
  28. What causes stress fratures?
    Stress fractures result when loading outpaces bone repair/remodeling
  29. What is Osteopenia?
    • Reuction in bone mineral density below normal levels, results in decreased bone strength
    • (Often a precursor to the development of osteoporosis)
  30. What causes Osteopenia?
    Inactivity, aging, low intake of vitamin D and calcium, and smoking
  31. What is the definition of Osteoporosis?
    Defined as decrease in bone density and decrease in overall volume of bone
  32. How is Osteopenia classified?
    1 to 2.5 standard deviations from the norm
  33. How is Osteoporosis classified?
