Definitions for "Bone Remodeling"
The continuous turnover of bone matrix and mineral that involves first, an increase in resorption (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive bone formation (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium homeostasis. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as osteoporosis.
the process of renovation for bone in which old bone is resorbed by osteoclasts and replaced with new bone by osteoblasts.
The normal coordination (coupling) between osteoclast cells (which resorb or destroy bone) and osteoblast cells (which create new bone matrix) to maintain a balanced state of bone production an destruction.
A continuous process in which bone is removed and replaced.
n. The process of restructuring living bone in response to external and internal stresses.
