CHAPTER 6 CARTILAGE AND BONE skeleton is supporting framework for the soft tissues of the body continually rebuilds and remodels itself reservoirs for calcium and phosphorus skeletal system includes bones cartilage ligaments and other connective tissues that stabilize or connect the bones Cartilage semirigid connective tissue that is weaker than bone but more exible and resilient contains a population of cells in a matrix of protein bers embedded within gellike ground substance 0 chondroblasts produce the matrix of cartilage and once they become encased within this matrix they producesecrete the cells are called chondrocytes and occupy small spaces called lacunae these are mature cartilage cells 0 mature cartilage is avascular not penetrated by blood vessels so nutrients diffuse through matrix 0 three types 0 hyaHne o elastic o brocartilage Functions of Cartilage 3 Major 0 supporting soft tissues 0 providing a gliding surface at articulations where two bones meet 0 model for the formation of most bones in the body in embryonic stage cartilage is later replaced by bone tissue Growth Patterns of Cartilage Cartilage grows in 2 ways 0 interstitial growth growth from within the cartilage itself o appositional growth growth along the cartilage s periphery In embryotic development both interstitial and appositional cartilage growth occur simultaneously 0 interstitial growth declines rapidly as cartilage matures and becomes semirigid and the matrix can no longer expand 0 Then only appositional growth occurs at the edges of the cartilage c When the cartilage is fully mature growth stops and only occurs slightly after injury but is limited because of the lack of blood vessels m 0 primary component of bone is bone connective tissue 0 quotosseous

blood supplies interconnect quotanastomosequot periosteal arteries and veins provide blood to external circumferential lamellae and super cial osteons within the compact bone at the external edge of bone MAINTAINING HOMEOSTASIS AND PROMOTING BONE GROWTH Effects of Hormones Hormones control and regulate bone growth and maintenance by altering the rates of osteoblast and osteoclast activity Growth hormone somatotropin produced by the anterior pituitary gland affects bone growth by stimulating the formation of another hormone called quotsomatomedinquotwhich is produced in liver and stimulates growth of cartilage in epiphyseal plate Thyroid hormone secreted by thyroid gland stimulates bone growth by in uencing basal metabolic rate of bone cells Both hormones balanced together maintain normal activity at epiphyseal plates until puberty 2 hormones regulate calcium levels in blood calcitonin secreted by cells in thyroid gland in response to elevated levels of calcium in blood encourages calcium deposition from blood into bone and inhibits osteoclast activity o parathyroid hormone producedreleased by parathyroid glands in response to reduced calcium levels in blood stimulates osteoclasts to resorb bone and increase calcium in blood sex hormones estrogen and testosterone dramatically accelerate bone growth increase rate of bone formation by osteoblasts in ossi cation centers in epiphyseal plate prominent in puberty abnormal amounts of hormones malfunctions in bone maintenance and growth 0 glucocorticoids hormones produced by adrenal cortex levels too high cause bone resorption and lead to loss of bone mass Effects of Vitamins vitamins required for bone growth and maintenance 0 vitamin A activates osteoblasts o vitamin C required for normal synthesis of collagen the primary organic component in bone matrix 0 vitamin D stimulates absorption and transport of calcium and phosphate ions into the blood necessary for calci cation of bone Effects of Exercise 0 mechanical stress exercise is needed for normal bone remodeling 0 increased amounts of mineral salts deposited and collagen bers synthesized 0 increases production of calcitonin which makes bone grow Fracture Repair 0 fracture break in bone 0 stress facture tiny break caused by recent increased physical activity in which bone experiences repetitive loads occur in weight bearing bones o traumatic fracture results from impact or excess stress to the bone 0 pathologic fracture results from bone being weakened by disease fractures categorized by amount of soft tissue damaged 0 simple fracture broken bone doesn t penetrate skin compound fracture does Steps of bone fracture repair l A fracture hematoma forms from clotted blood in area 2 A brocartilaginous soft callus forms 0 regenerated blood capillaries in ltrate hematoma 0 hematoma reorganized into actively growing connective tissue called a procallus produces collagen bers that connect broken ends of bones 0 procallus becomes brocartilaginous soft callus after chondroblasts form dense regular connective tissue 3 A hard bony callus forms 0 replaces brocartilaginous callus by osteoprogenitor cells adjacent to callus becoming osteoblasts and producing trabeculae of primary bone 4 The bone is remodeled 0 hard callus for 34 months as osteoclasts remove excess bone compact bone replaces primary bone fracture leaves thick spot in bone BONE MARKINGS bone markings or surface features characterize each bone in body include projections marking tendon or ligament attachment points used to describe elevations and

teeth with sockets of mandible and maxillae tooth held in place by brous periodontal membrane synarthrosis joint Sutures immovable brous joints occur only between certain bones of skull have distinct interlocking usually irregular edges that both increase strength and decrease number of fractures at these articulations permit the skull to grown as brain size increases childhood becomes ossi ed in adults fusion of suture causes them to become synostoses Syndesmoses brous joints in which articulating bones are joined by long strands of dense regular connective tissue only allow for slight mobility amphiarthrosis occur between radius amp ulna tibia amp bula bones bound side by side by a broad ligamentous sheet called and interosseous membrane which provides a pivot point for bones to move against one another Cartilaginous oints Sync hond roses articulations where bones are joined by hyaline cartilage immobile synarthrosis hyaline cartilage of epiphyseal plates in children forms synchondroses that bind epiphysis and diaphysis of long bone when hyaline stops growing bone replaces cartilage and synchondroses no longer exists sphenooccipital synchondroses between sphenoid and basilar part of occipital bone doesn t fuse until 20 s chostochondral joints joints between each bony rib and its respective costal cartilage Symphyses have pads of brocartilage between articulating

prevent bones pulling apart 0 inner layer is synovial membrane composed of areolar connective tissue covers all internal joint surfaces not covered by cartilage lines articular capsule articulating bone surfaces are covered by thin hyaline cartilage layer called articular cartilage 0 reduces friction in joint during movement spongy cushion to absorb compression prevents damage to articulating ends of bones lacks a perichondrium because mature cartilage is avascular frequent stress of exercise is vital to maintain healthy articular cartilage because it enhances nutrition and waste removal 0 joint cavity quotarticular cavityquot is space with some synovial uid 0 permits separation of articulating bones synovial uid is viscous and oily composed of secretions from synovial membrane lining joint cavity has 3 functions OOOO o 1 lubricating the articular cartilage on articulating bones o 2 nourishes articular cartilage s chondrocytes movement expansioncompression at synovial joint causes articular cartilage to circulate synovial uid 0 3 acts as shock absorber distributing stresses and force evenly across articular surfaces when the pressure in the joint suddenly increases ligaments
