An attempt has been made to determine if the structural renewal of bone tissue takes place to a greater extent in the spongiosa than in the compacta and how this is related to the more extensive free surface area in the former. To this purpose, on transverse sections of the femur and 2 degrees lumbar vertebral body of the female lactating rats fed a normal (L group) or a calcium free diet (H group) the area of compact and spongy bone, and the perimeter of the trabeculae were measured. Then TBV… CONTINUE READING
