Although the formation of a secondary center of ossification is often compared with that of the primary center, there are striking differences between these processes. In the formation of the primary center, vascular invasion is always associated with the maturation of chondrocytes, whereas vascularization of the epiphysis can proceed in two different ways. In some species, the epiphysis is vascularized by cartilage canals before the appearance of the secondary center. However, in the mouse… CONTINUE READING
