high-intensity ultrasound on the rabbit growth plate
The rationale of this study is to analyze effects of iron supplementation during pregnancy on the height of hypertrophy and proliferative zones of epiphyseal growth plate
of femur of new born.
GH stimulates linear growth through the secretion of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in the liver and growth plate
and hence GH and IGF-I are regarded as the main stimulators of longitudinal bone growth.
Unfortunately, many of these injuries are poorly managed, resulting in overuse strain on the growth plate
and subsequent irregular and/or partial healing.
Transphyseal vessels bridging the growth plate
to the epiphysis were identified as well.
So an understanding of how to design products so they don't invade the growth plate
is key to developing a successful pediatric implant.
He fractured the growth plate
in his hip during a 300-meter race in the indoor season.
Salter-Harris type II fracture refers to a physeal injury in which the fracture extends along the growth plate
then out through a portion of the metaphysis, producing a triangular shaped metaphyseal fragment referred to as the "Thurston Holland sign.
OSD is characterized by inflammation of the growth plate
just below the knee, the result of repetitive strain on the secondary ossification center of the tibial tuberosity.
Definitive causes were not identified in the literature, but some of the many possibilities included muscular fatique due to excessive physical activity, postural deviations such as pes planus (flat feet), pronated feet, genu valgum (knock knees), and medical conditions and pathologies such as juvenile arthritis, osteomyelitis, Ross River virus, a fracture across the growth plate
, and Osgood-Schlatter's syndrome.
Children's bones will not have calcified fully and will still have an area of tissue known as the growth plate
Prior to closure of the epiphysis, fractures (Salter-Harris type I or II) usually occur through the growth plate
or through the juxtaepiphyseal region 1 to 2 mm distal to the growth plate
