7. Progressive ossification and growth of a long bone. a, The cartilaginous stage. b, Deposition of spongy, endochondral bone (stipple), and the compact, perichondral bone (black). c, An epiphysis appears at each end. d, The marrow cavity (sparse stipple) appears as endochondral bone is resorbed. e, Each epiphysis ossifies, leaving articular cartilage at both ends. Notice that the enlargement of the marrow cavity continues by the resorption of bone centrally as deposition continues on the periphery.

The terms ‘endochondral’ and ‘intramembranous’ refer to the sites or environments in which formation and ossification occur. The term ‘endochondral’ infers that growth is taking place ‘in cartilage’ and the term ‘intramembranous’ infers that growth is taking place ‘in membrane’. The fundamental process of endochondral ossification is responsible for growing most bones in the skeleton and those at the base of the skull. It is characterized by bone tissue being deposited on a strong network of calcified cartilage and in normal circumstances can occur only when an epiphyseal plate is present.
