Abstract

The microvasculature of bone marrow and its relationship to that of bone cortex is discussed as revealed by the vascular corrosion casting/scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) method. The bone marrow sinusoids are supplied by arteriolar capillaries arising from the central marrow artery, and anastomose with each other to form a complicated network. The sinusoids are collected into the central vein and hence to the nutrient vein, except for the juxta-endosteal sinusoids which are drained into the periosteal veins via venules traversing the cortex. The possibility of back flow from the cortex to the marrow sinusoids, particularly to those adjacent to the endosteal region of the cortex is so far not excluded: further studies using a variety of methods will be needed, to conclusively establish the actual blood flow pattern in this particular region.
