Osteon development

Blood vessel

  • Osteoclasts arrive

    • begin dissolving a cone or “tunnel”

    • in the mineralized matrix


Osteon development

  • Osteoblasts now arrive

    • line the “tunnel”

    • begin adding layers ofmineralized matrix


Osteon review

Osteon(haversian system)

Osteocytes

(in lacunae)

Lamellae

Central canal

Canaliculi


Osteon fun facts

  • Around 21 million osteons inadult skeleton

  • Each osteon is 100-400 µmin diameter (1 inch = 25,400 µm)

  • A medium osteon has about30 lamellae (each about 3 µm)

  • The central canal is around50 µm in diameter
