The plan and organization of vascular channels of cortical bone are best known for the shafts of mammalian long bones where numerous elongate parallel vessels either have cross connections or branch and anastomose to form a complex threedimensional mesh with a predominant proximo-distal orientation (Petersen, '30; Schumacher, '35; Ruth, '47; Bartoli and Vasciaveo, '57; Cohen and Harris, '58). The pattern is roughly comparable to that seen in carmine-gelatin injected striate muscle; in muscle… CONTINUE READING
