Bone Growth By Tina Cook

Bones grow with the epiphysis plate, something like endochondral ossification. Endochondral Ossification involves the replacement of hyaline cartilage with bony tissue. The cartilage located in the same region of the epiphysis plate next to the epiphysis continues to grow by way of mitosis. This is where chaondracytes, if located in region next to diathesis will age. The osteo blasts now move in and ossify matrix to form bone. When cartilage growth cease in the early twenties, the ephehyseal plate completely ossifies only an epiphyseal line remains and bone will not grow in length. The growth of a bone depends on the ovaries and testes of someone. The Bone starts, as a Hyaline cartilage then will proceed to get harder and ossify. To be bone caller and periosium and the primacy ossification canter. Next the blood vessels and secondary ossification starts. Then Medullar cavity and last all is complete epiphyseal plate is visible and stanched to the Articular cartilage.

This is the growth of a bone in length, but even if a bone in length, but even if a bone quits growing in thickness and diameter thought out life, in response to stress from increased muscle activity or to weights.
