Secondary Osteon Variants and Remodeling in Human Bone

Cooke, Karen; Mahoney, Patrick; Miszkiewicz, Justyna


Histomorphometric analysis of human cortical bone has documented the occurrence of secondary osteon variants. These include drifting osteons which form tails as they move erratically through the cortex and Type II osteons which show partial resorption and redeposition within the cement line of the osteon. Little is known about the biological significance of these variants. Prior studies suggested correlations with age, biomechanics, diet, and mineral homeostasis. No study has yet tested for...[Show more]
