Microvascular Network of Marrow

Arteries Arterioles

The vascularization of the marrow is illustrated in figure 6. The radial branches of the nutrient artery form a leash of arterioles that penetrate the endosteal surface to supply the bone capillary bed. Small arterioles from these radial branches supply the marrow sinusoids adjacent to the bone. In the adult dog, the marrow consists of adipose tissue yellow marrow , which provides support for the lateral branches of the nutrient artery as they run toward the endosteal surface of the bone....

Introduction The Story So

1.1 Biomechanics in Europe and the BioNet project It is said that any truly new knowledge is created at the borders of established science fields. Biomechanics is a perfect example. We define biomechanics as the science that studies the action of forces on living bodies at any scale, from whole body down to cells. Biomechanics is not a scientific discipline in a strict sense. Rather, it is a discipline made of other disciplines. It is defined at the border between mathematics, physics,...

Bone Lamellae Lacunae And Trabeculae

COWIN The New York Center for Biomedical Engineering Departments of Biomedical amp Mechanical Engineering, The School of Engineering of The City College and The Graduate School of The City University of New York, New York, NY There are two main types of fluid in bone issue, blood and interstitial fluid. The chemical composition of these fluids varies with time and location in bone. Blood arrives through the arterial system containing oxygen and other nutrients, and the blood...

The capillary network within cortical bone. The major arterial supply to the diaphysis is from the nutrient artery. There is an abundant capillary bed throughout the bone tissue that drains outwards to the periosteal veins. Modified from Figure 4 of E.A. Williams, R. H. Fitzgerald, and P.J. Kelly, Microcirculation of Bone, in The physiology and pharmacology of the microcirculation, Vol. 2, Academic Press, 1984 . Figure 7. The capillary network within cortical bone. The major arterial...
