These categories of abnormalities can be distinguished on the basis of either regional bone loss or deposition of additional bone, as in osteophytic
lipping of vertebral centra, especially in the lumbar region of skeletons of older individuals (Figures 1 [V] and 6).
A fibrous band extended superiorly to the level of the mentum, where it was attached to an osteophytic

(2-4) Abnormal motion may lead to an osteophytic
spur at the pseudarthrosis, which may also impinge on the cuff.
Any signs of pressure such as redness, blisters, hard skin or extra bone developing (osteophytic

An x-ray shows some mild joint-space narrowing in the medial compartment and osteophytic
There were no signs of severe joint degeneration in the few joints observeable, save for a small osteophytic
lesion (bony outgrowth) on the body of 5th lumbar vertebra, however muscle attachment sites were quite marked.
degenerations of the vertebral column are more common on the right than the left side of the body as reported by Lipschitz et al.
On the basis of osteophytic
development and abnormally compressed spinous processes, he suggested that they came from a pack dog, the pathologies having developed in response to the stress of carrying an individual load.
A minor osteoarthritic problem of the lower back region is indicated in the lumbar and sacral bones by slight osteophytic
