In mature adult bones the trabeculae of the cancellous or spongy regions of a bone represent more fragmentary interconnected systems of bone tissue with large spaces between them that contain blood vessels, bone cells and marrow. Trabecular bone tissue contains no vascular canals because of its close proximity to such large volumes of marrow space. In adult humans the cortical bone turnover rate is about 2 - 3 % year" , whereas roughly 2 5 % of trabecular bone is renewed annually (Eriksen, 1986).
