The following discussion of the principles of modeling is based on the diaphysis and metaphysis of a growing long bone. However, these general principles apply broadly to other bones. As osteoblasts are adding bone to part of the mineralized cartilage, osteoclasts are frequently seen in histological preparations to be removing the mineralized cartilage (Figure 2-10). It is important to emphasize that bone destruction is a normal component of bone growth and that osteoblasts and osteoclasts work in concert to create the growing bone.
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. terolateral endosteal surface. Bone is removed from the anteromedial endosteal surface and posterolateral periosteal surface. Histologically what is apparent is that surface parallel lamellar bone characterizes those areas where bone is being added, whereas internally (osteon) remodeled bone and partially destroyed osteons characterize areas of bone removal.
Physiologically calcium is, among other things, a cofactor in blood clotting and involved in the contractile mechanism of muscle (McLean and Urist 1968:259). , possibly bone mineral adjacent to the haversian canal), and (5) bone resorption (osteoclast activity). Although the major factors in calcium physiology are dietary and renal, the skeleton mthrough osteoclastic resorption and r e m o d e l i n g - plays a significant role in mineral homeostasis. , Paget's disease) the control mechanisms for bone remodeling become defective, resulting in greatly increased osteon and appositional bone turnover.
