1): • Mobilisation of calcium in the framework of calcium homeostasis • Replacement of old osseous tissue • Overall skeletal and individual local adaptation to different loads, weight-bearing and stress • Repair of damaged bone, both microscopic and macroscopic The last refers not only to repair or healing of fractures of whole bones but also to the countless perforations, breaks or cracks of the trabeculae, the “microfractures”, “microdamage” or “fatigue damage” which occur constantly and which together with the thickness of the bones determine the fracture risk.

Within the intertrabecular space, central sinusoids are associated with erythrons and megakaryocytes, while endosteal sinusoids (Fig. 14) of variable number and width accompany the trabeculae and supply the osteoblasts and osteoid seams. The medullary sinusoids drain into the periosteal venules and veins, which accompany the arteries and leave through foramina near the articular ends of the long bones. Lymph vessels are present in the periosteum. Traction of attached muscles may also assist venous drainage.

These extend into the bone, where they stimulate release of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline, which then stimulates beta-2-adrenergic receptors on osteoblasts, inhibiting osteoblastic activity. Leptin inhibits bone formation through its action on already differentiated osteoblasts and has no overt effect on osteoclast differentiation or function. These results seem to suggest that the millions of patients who have been treated with “beta-blockers” such as propranolol for hypertension should have increased bone mass – an argument for reassessing these clinical studies with respect to changes in bone density.
