By Murray Brookes DM, MA, DLO, William J. Revell BA, MSc, PhD (auth.)

Blood provide of Bone: clinical Aspects presents a finished description of the advance and body structure of blood offer to the skeleton. Investigative concepts for various varieties of bone within the physique are mentioned and the results of disturbed movement and the vascular keep watch over of osteogenesis is defined. This hugely illustrated and authoritative quantity comprises a lot revised fabric and lots of new illustrations reflecting 25 years of advances during this study box because the ebook of its recognized precursor in 1971. The wealth of data won't purely be valuable to orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, and radiologists but in addition pathologists, activities medication experts and bone metabolism examine workers.

Example text

Constancy ofpattern offibromuscular attachments Internal remodelling of the metaphysis may also provide the mechanism whereby constancy of pattern of muscle and tendon attachments to a bone is preserved. For reasons analogous to those detailed above in respect of the arteries, growing muscles and tendons affixed to the metaphyseal cortex, itself being incorporated into the diaphysis, would tend to drift away from the growth cartilage unless the fibrous attachments were relocated. Collagen fibre renewal at an ultrastructural level using 14C-Iabelled proline has been demonstrated to occur in the periodontal ligament (Thomas 1967).

Duhamel (1739) then made use of intermittent madder feeding in order to show that the periosteum was osteogenic. In this way he was able to distinguish layers of newly deposited red periosteal bone, from the white bone formed when madder was withheld. The root acts by virtue of its contained alizarin which is incorporated into bone mineral. By means of madder feeding, Humphry was also able to demonstrate unequal growth at the ends of a long bone, and proposed that the cause of nutrient artery obliquity was the unequal drag exerted on the periosteum at each epiphysis (Fig.

Diaphyseal nutrient ligation The importance of epiphyseo-metaphyseal arteries in bone growth has been demonstrated by ligating the single nutrient artery of the femur in day-old rabbits (Brookes 1957), and obliterating the nutrient canal, thus ensuring that re-generation of the vessel did not take place. Measurements of femoral length were taken from serial radiographs of the growing animals. Final direct measurements were also taken 5 16 Fig. 16.
