Abstract

By means of light microscopical techniques and scanning electron microscopy spatial organization of the lacunar-canalicular system (LCS) has been studied in structures of a mature lamellar bone. A method for making corrosive casts of osseous lacunae and canaliculi is suggested, owing to which their spatial organization can be analysed. Certain data on interconnections of the osseous lacunae with each other and with vascular canals and natural surfaces of the bone are presented. The role of LCS as a component of the microcirculatory bed of the lamellar bone is discussed.
