Biophysical Bone Behavior: Principles and Applications by Jitendra Behari

By Jitendra Behari

Biophysical Bone Behaviour: ideas and Applications is the fruits of efforts to narrate the biophysical phenomena in bone to bone progress and electric habit. Behari develops a bridge among physics and biology of bone resulting in its scientific purposes, basically electro stimulations in fracture therapeutic and osteoporosis. The booklet is predicated upon authors personal learn paintings and his overview articles within the quarter, and up to date with the most recent examine effects.

The analage cartilage is made up of cartilage cells with a surrounding immature intercellular matrix. In the long bones, during the first stages of conversion into bones, cartilage cells in the central part of the shaft increase their rate of proliferation, enlarge and become hypertrophic. Blood vessels penetrate into this altered cartilage and promote osteogenic activity. 8 (a) and (b) Schematic representation of bone anatomy at the microscopic level; (c) bone under bending, showing a negative charge on the concave surface and a positive charge on the convex surface – the polarities will be reversed if the direction of bending is reversed Elements of Bone Biophysics 21 their function, and the name given to a cell depends on its activity at the time.

One can speculate that age-related changes in the type and/or amount of CAM expressed may impair cell–cell communication, either directly or through abnormal expression of connexins. Cell–cell communication is necessary to maintain the work of osteoblasts synchronous within basic multicellular units. An improper signal exchange may cause the remodeling units to become asynchronous. This may disrupt or slow down bone turnover. Ultimately, age-related abnormalities in the expression of CAMs and/or connexins may impair the ability of osteoblasts precursors to differentiate, with a consequent decrease in osteoblast number.

5 Role of Bone Water Next to osteoid and mineral, water occupies the largest volume fraction in bone. It is probably because of this that the nature and role of water in calcified tissues has been a subject of serious investigations (Neuman and Neuman, 1958; Robinson and Elliot, 1957; Timmins and Wall, 1977). , extracellular matrix). The estimated 24 Biophysical Bone Behavior maximum water content in the vascular-lacunar-canalicular space is 12% of the total volume of bone, a value higher than the 8% calculated by others (Zhang, Weinbaum and Cowin, 1998).
