Moreover, giant cell tumor of bone affects the epiphyseal ends of the skeletally mature patient, as opposed to NOF, which never affects the epiphysis
Dietary protein has to be highlighted, as rats fed a 20% protein diet for 7 days had increased body growth, muscle growth, epiphyseal cartilage width and epiphysis
length compared to a 5% protein diet group.
5g and 5h); 74659, lumbar vertebra; 74663, left proximal ulna; 74664, left lunar; 74665, left magnum; 74687, ball epiphysis

It has the additional benefit of triggering a biologic reaction that accelerates revascularization of the epiphysis
to shorten duration of the active stage.
This must have occurred while the ligaments in the shoulder were intact, since the humerus with the proximal epiphysis
and the scapular epiphysis
were in anatomically correct positions.

The association of unfused acromial epiphysis
with tears of the rotator cuff: A review of 42 cases.
The anteroposterior radiograph of both knees shows an irregularity of the medial epiphysis
of the tibias bilaterally (Figure 1).
Meyer and colleagues (3) studied the arterial supply of six fresh frozen proximal humeri and found that the epiphysis
received contributions from both the anterior and posterior circumflex humeral arteries.
The predominant radiologic findings include triangularization of the distal radial epiphysis
with shortening of the ulnar segment, dorsal dislocation of the distal ulna that cannot be easily reduced, pyramidalization of the distal carpal row, shortening and bowing of the distal radius, and widening of the distal radioulnar joint.
Perthes disease is an osteochondrosis of the proximal femoral epiphysis
