Blood and Nerve Supply of Bone
The blood and nerve supply to bones are carried in Haversian canals which run along the long axis of bones.
Microscopic Anatomy of Bone
The basic microscopic unit of bone is an osteon, which can be arranged into woven bone or lamellar bone.
Chemical Composition of Bone
Acid-base imbalances including metabolic acidosis and alkalosis, can produce severe, even life-threatening medical conditions.
