remodeling

 [re-mod´el-ing]
reorganization or renovation of an old structure.
bone remodeling absorption of bone tissue and simultaneous deposition of new bone; in normal bone the two processes are in dynamic equilibrium.

bone remodeling

See Remodeling.

bone remodeling

The net effect of new bone formation and absorption in which bone is resorbed and new bone formed at the same site. This process keeps the calcium content of bone stable. Bone is a dynamic tissue: it responds continuously to mechanical stress, nutritional status, hormones, and concentrations of circulating calcium.
