Bone formation

Storyboard Text

  • Do you know that there are two different process of bone formation.
  • Yes! The intramembranous ossification and the endochondral ossification.
  • Do you know how they differ from each other?
  • No, but I think it will be discussed later in class.
  • Good morning everybody, today's lesson will be about bones and how they are formed. There are two major modes of bone formation, or osteogenesis, and both involve the transformation of a preexisting mesenchymal tissue into bone tissue.
  • Endochondral Ossification - The process of bone development from hyaline cartilage.- Important in the formation of long bones- Takes longer time-Stops at year two - Indirect bone growth.
  • Intramembranous Ossification - The process of bone development from fibrous membranes.- Important in the formation of flat bones- Takes less time to form- Stops at year 18 in female and 21 in male-Direct bone growth
  • That will be discussed tomorrow.
  • But why does intramembranous ossification stop at 18 for us females but 21 for males?
