The vertebral bodies of the complete spine (C-3-L-5) were removed in 26 autopsy cases without evidence for primary or secondary bone disease (13 males aged 19-79 years and 13 females aged 17-90 years). A sagittal segment through the center of all vertebral bodies was embedded undecalcified in hydroxyethylmethacrylate and processed to so-called surface stained block grindings. Histomorphometric analysis of the complete segment was performed using a computer-assisted image analysis system (IBAS… CONTINUE READING
