El hueso está formado por una capa más superficial (hueso cortical) y una parte profunda (hueso esponjoso). El hueso cortical forma una capa externa más compacta y que constituye un soporte y una protección. El hueso esponjoso por el contrario no es tan compacto y está formado por un entramado trabecular que se entrelaza entre sí formando una especie de “tabiques”. Estos “tabiques” o trabéculas pueden fracturarse como consecuencia de un fuerte impacto o por peq
Tibia - tibia /tib·ia/ (tib´e-ah) shin bone; the inner and larger bone of the leg below the knee. It articulates with the femur and head of the fibula above and with the talus below.
Long-term Bisphosphonate Use Degrades Cortical Bone
Direct implant done right after the extraction of a central incisor root. This implant technique is very common especially in the anterior zone in order to avoid losing any bone height. Since that would lead to and unesthetic result. Also it is very common to have a fracture of the external (buccal) cortical bone during extraction since that zone of bone is very thin. The surgeon performed a bone graft at the zone of the fractured bone. Thank you Dr. Khaled
This one bizarre invention could revolutionize the way we heal
The hard, outer layer of your #bones is #compact (or #cortical) #bone. It is denser than the inner (#cancellous or #spongy) part of the bone. Compact bone gives your #skeleton its smooth, white appearance and it gives your skeleton its strength and durability. Compact bone accounts for 80% of the mass of your skeleton. Compact bone is covered by a tough layer of #connective #tissue called the #periosteum. The #tendons that connect your #muscles to your bones are attached to the periosteum.
Cortex cast for fractured bones by Jake Evill. casts for fractured bones could replace the usual bulky, itchy and smelly plaster or fibreglass ones in this conceptual project by Victoria University of Wellington graduate Jake Evill.
Compact bone or Cortical bone. The hard outer layer of bones is composed of compact bone tissue, so-called due to its minimal gaps and spaces. This tissue gives bones their smooth, white, and solid appearance. Compact bone may also be referred to as dense bone.
