The membrane of fibrous connective tissue which closely invests all bones except at the articular surfaces.
All the bones in the body are covered by this specialized connective tissue. It has the potential of forming bones. The periosteum has two layers: The outside one is a network of dense connective tissue with blood vessels, and the deep one is loosely arranged collaginous bundles with spindle-shaped connective tissue cells and a network of thin, elastic fibers. The periosteum is very sensitive to pain. Example: A kick in the shin.
layer, or "skin" of fibrous inner tissue on surface of bone.
A connective tissue layer that covers bones
the compact and cancellous tissues of bone together; beneath the hard outer shell of the periosteum, there are tunnels and canals through which blood and lymphatic vessels run to carry nourishment for the bone; muscles, ligaments, and tendons may attach to the periosteum.
A specialized connective tissue which covers all of the bones in the body. This tissue can also form new bone.
The layer that surrounds a bone, consisting of an outer fibrous region and inner cellular region.
The fibrous membranes which cover the bones.
The highly sensitive connective tissue sheathing the bones; it contains a rich blood supply and provides for the nutrition, growth, repair, and protection of the underlying bone.
a fibrous membrane that covers the outside of bone.
Connective tissue envelope covering cortical bone.
membrane that covers bone and consists of connective tissue, osteoprogenitor cells, and osteoblasts; it is essential for bone growth, repair, and nutrition
A thick fibrous membrane covering the surface of bone except at points of articulation.
osteon = bone; fibrous membrane covering bone, attached to bony matrix by Sharpey's fibres.
fibrous membrane covering bone except on the surface of joints which are covered in articular cartilage. (More? Musculoskeletal Notes)
tough, tight-fitting membrane that covers the surface of bones.
the sheath around a bone.
a dense fibrous membrane covering the surface of bones (except at their extremities) and serving as an attachment for tendons and muscles; contains nerves and blood vessels that nourish the enclosed bone
A tough "membrane" of variable thickness which covers bone and is firmly and directly attached to it.
Greek peri = around, and osteon = bone; hence, the membrane around a bone.
A membrane which covers bone and possesses bone forming potential
The tough fibrous membrane surrounding a bone
A fibrous membrane that covers the surface of bone except at the end of the bones where it is covered with cartilage as part of a joint. In children, periosteum is involved in forming new bone and molding the configuration of bone; and in the adult, the periosteum forms new bone secondary to injury or infection.
A membrane covering the outer surfaces of bone
The membrane of connective tissue that closely enfolds all bones except at the articular surfaces.
A Þbrous membrane that covers bones and serves as the site of attachment for skeletal muscles; contains nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels.
the compact and cancellous tissues of bone together; beneath the hard outer shell of the periosteum, blood and lymphatic run through tunnels and canals to carry nourishment for the bone. Muscles, ligaments, and tendons may attach to the periosteum.
a fiber-like covering of the bones beneath the hard outer shell of the periosteum, there are tunnels and canals through which blood and lymphatic vessels carry nourishment for the bone; muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
the fibrous covering of a bone.
Fibrous tissue that encases bone.
a thin layer of tissue covering bone
(pawr'-ee-OS-tee-uhm) The connective tissue covering around a bone that is important in bone growth, nutrition, and repair.
The lining of the bone. It has sensation and it helps control the shape and growth of bone.
the membrane which covers a bone.
a tight fitting, tough, fibrous membrane covering all bones except at joint surfaces
The periosteum is a layer of dense connective tissue that covers most of the surface of a bone, providing attachment for muscles, tendons and ligaments.
the membrane that wraps around bones and contains valuable blood vessels and nerves that help nourish the bone and provide sensation. It contains active cells that make bone and provide for an excellent blood supply and for better healing. As we get older, this membrane becomes thinner making the healing process slow with age. Kids have a thicker one.
the sheath around the bone.
Connective tissue membrane covering a bone.
Lining covering bone.
Connective tisue covering of bone
The fibrous connective tissue, which surrounds the surface of bones.
The connective tissue covering the bones of the body.
The dense fibrous membrane covering the surface of bones except at the joints and serving as an attachment for muscles and tendons.
The periosteum is a thin layer of connective tissue that covers the outer surface of a bone in all places except at joints (which are protected by articular cartilage). As opposed to bone itself, it has nociceptive nerve endings, making it very sensitive to manipulation. It also provides nourishment in the form of blood supply to the bone.
