Following a fracture of the humerus, an adult patient has a biopsy of the healing area. Which of the following types of bone will the biopsy most likely show?

 A

Cancellous

 B

Compact

 C

Spongy

 D

Woven

Ans. D

Explanation:

Bone is formed by type I collagen fibers, ground substance, and hydroxyapatite crystals. . It can be parallel (trabecular bone and periosteum) or concentric (Haversian system). When bone is formed quickly, as in a healing fracture site, metabolic bone disease, or tumor, the collagen is randomly oriented and is called woven bone.
Compact bone is the dense calcified external part of the bone. It is lamellar bone.
Cancellous , spongy and trabecular bone are all synonymous terms for the thinner network of bone within the cortex. These are also lamellar bone.

Healing of a fracture

The process of fracture healing varies according to the type of bone involved and the amount of movement at the fracture site. Following healing processes are there :‑

Indirect fracture healing (healing by callus)

This is the ‘natural’ form of healing in tubular bones and in the absence of rigid fixation when there is micromovement at fracture site. There is formation of internal and external callus. This stage is divided in three phases which are further subdivided into five stages :
