 Intoduction: Skeletal System
• The hard structure that provides a frame for
  supporting the soft tissues and protecting the
  internal organs.
• Skeletal system includes
   – Bones
   – Cartilages
   – Ligaments
   – Other connective tissues that stabilize or
     connect the bones (eg tendon)
 Functions of skeletal system
• Support the body weight.
   – Bones provide a framework for attachment of soft
• Storage of minerals and lipids.
   – Calsium, phosphate ions, lipids
• Blood cell production.
   – (RBC, WBC, platelets)
• Protection of soft tissues and organ.
   – Ribs the heart, lungs
• Leverage
   – Bones acting as levers for muscle movements.
• Osteology
   – Greek osteon = bone, and logy = a field of study
   – Osteology is the scientific study of bones that deals
     with the structure of bones, the process of
• Arthrology
   – The study of the structure and function of joints.
   – Joint - where the ends of two or more bones meet.
• Cartilage
   – A tough, rubbery, fibrous, dense connective tissue
     found in various parts of the body, such as the
     joints, outer ear, and larynx.
   – Chondral - pertaining to cartilage.
• Also called osseous tissue, (Latin: "os")
• Is a type of hard endoskeletal connective tissue
• Provide the body structure,
• Facilitate movement(in conjunction with muscles).
• Protect the internal organs.
• Involved with cell formation, calcium metabolism, and
  mineral storage.
• The adult human body has 206 of them.
• Bone has a different composition than cartilage, and
  both are derived from mesoderm
 Divisions of the Skeleton
• The human skeleton is divided into two
  distinct parts
• The axial skeleton
   – consists of bones that form the axis of the
     body and support and protect the organs of
     the head, neck, and trunk.
     •   The Skull
     •   The Sternum
     •   The Ribs
     •   The Vertebral Column
• The appendicular skeleton
   – is composed of bones that anchor the
     appendages to the axial skeleton.
     •   The Upper Extremities
     •   The Lower Extremities
     •   The Shoulder Girdle
     •   The Pelvic Girdle (the sacrum and coccyx are
         considered part of the vertebral column)
The axial skeleton &
The appendicular
  Bone Shapes
• Long bones
    – Longer than they are wide and work as levers. Eg bones of
      the upper and lower extremities (humerus, tibia, femur, ulna,
      metacarpals, etc.)
• Short bones
    – Short, cube-shaped, and found in the wrists and ankles.
• Flat bones
    – Have broad surfaces for protection of organs and attachment
      of muscles (eg ribs, cranial bones, bones of shoulder girdle).
• Irregular bones
    – All others that do not fall into the previous categories. They
      have varied shapes, sizes, and surfaces features and include
      the bones of the vertebrae and a few in the skull.
• Sesamoid bones
    – Small, flat and shaped like a sesame seed.
 Structure of long bone
• Proximal and distal epiphyses (singular is epiphysis)
  which are the dilated “ends” of the bone.
• Diaphysis - the tubular shaft of the bone.
• Proximal and distal metaphyses – the area between
  each epiphysis and the diaphysis.
   – In a child’s, metaphysis is called an epiphyseal
     plate and consists of growing hyaline cartilage.
   – In an adult, the metaphyses are called epiphyseal
     lines and consist of osseous connective tissue.
Typical structure of a long bone
 Structures of long bone
• Periosteum - connective tissue.
• Proximal and distal articular cartilages –
  hyaline cartilage
• Spongy bone (aka cancellous or trabecular
• Compact bone – forms the tubular
• Medullary cavity – the space within the
• Endosteum – connective tissue.
• Nutrient artery and nutrient foramen.
Structures of long bone
 Cartilage & Bone
• Make up the skeletal system
• A type of connective tissue
  – Have cells, fibers & ground substances
  – Ground substance = substances in
     between the cells
• Can withstand high pressure/force
• Supporting & protecting soft tissues
 Cartilage (chondral)
• Cartilage is a structural tissue like bone.
• A semi-rigid tissue & pressure-tolerant (unlike bone).
• It can be found on the ends of bone.
   – e.g. hyaline cartilage.
• Has an amorphous cellular structure.
   – Allows for diffusion of nutrients to the cartilage
• Consists of
   – Cartilage cells (chondrocytes), and
   – A dense network of collagen fibers and elastic
      fibers embedded in chondroitin sulfate (a gel-like
      component of ground substance).
• Cartilage undergoes both
   – Interstitial (growth within the tissue) and
   – Appositional (growth at surfaces) growth.
• Cartilage has no blood vessels, nerves or lymphatic
   – Receives nutrient from nearby blood vessels of
     connective tissue or from body fluid (eg sinovial
• 3 types (based on fibers & matrix):
   – Hyaline cartilage
   – Elastic cartilage
   – Fibrocartilage
    Function of cartilage
•   Support – skeleton of foetus.
•   Movement – articular cartilage.
•   Growth & development of bones.
•   Healing – fracture
• Layer of dense irregular connective tissue.
• Seen as 2 layers:
   – Outer layer –  collagen fiber.
   – Inner layer –  chondrogenic cells (from
• Function:
   – Development of cartilage.
   – Maintainance of cartilage.
   – Fracture healing – fibroblast & mesenchymal cells.

• Cells of mature cartilage.
• Oval shape (immatured), spherical (matured)
• Can be found in cartilage matrix inside a
  lacuna (space within cartilage tissue)
   – Peripheral lining: parallel to the
   – Internal lining: groups within lacunae

 Hyaline cartilage
• The most abundant cartilage in the body.

   – A bluish-white, shiny ground substance
   – Fine collagen fiber (type II).
   – Many chondrocytes.
• Ground substance is made of proteoglican
  (polisacharide) which is rich in sulfate
   – Sulphate gives the dark blue appearence arround
     the lacuna through H&E staining (territorial matrix).
• Perichondrium is present.
• Location: long bones (articular surfaces), nasal
  septum, larynx, bronchus, trachea, fetal skeleton.

 Cartilage growth
• Appositional growth (outside)
   – Chondrogenic cells (from perichondrium)
     differentiate into chondroblasts
   – Chondroblasts synthesis the cartilage
     matrix and turn into chondrocytes.
• Intestitional growth (inside)
   – Mitosis of chondrocytes occurs to form new
     cartilage cells (chondroblasts).
   – Chondroblasts produce fibers and ground
     substances (cartilage matrix).
    Bone (oseus)
• Organ composed of different connective tissues:
   – Bone/oseus tissue.
