endosteum (endos´tēəm),

n a thin layer of connective tissue that lines the walls of the bone marrow cavities and haversian canals of compact bone and covers the trabeculae of cancellous bone. It has both osteogenic and hematopoietic potencies and, like the periosteum, takes an active part in the healing of fractures.

endosteum

the tissue lining the medullary cavity of a bone.

cortical endosteum
endosteal lining to cortical bone; delimits the marrow cavity.
osteonal endosteum
endosteal lining of the osteonal canals.
trabecular endosteum
the endosteum which coats the interior surfaces of the trabeculae.

Sindbis-group alphavirus replication in periosteum and endosteum of long bones in adult mice.
The surfaces of all bone tissues are covered by a single cell layer of osteoblasts, which means that these cells cover all trabecular bone and are present as the innermost cell layer in the endosteum and periosteum of cortical bone.
2) It usually involves the periosteum and endosteum of diaphyseal cortical bone.
The central type arises from the endosteum or the periodontal ligament (PDL) adjacent to the root apex and expands from the medullary cavity of the bone.
We note also that the insertion of a stem into the canal destroys the endosteum, a thin layer of connective tissue filled with cortical capillaries that lines the medullary cavity.
Inserting the stem into the medullary canal, however, is preceded by boring the canal, partially destroying the endosteum lining the canal's walls.
Because of ischemia in the bone wall tissues and the damage to the medullary artery and cortical capillaries in the endosteum [27], ossification may not be completed in such a way as to reliably withstand the vertical load applied to the implant.
Expansion results in a press-fit, with the endosteum providing an axially and rotationally stable construct.
18) At the systemic level, it was suggested that if estrogens play a role in modulating the parathyroid on bone the effect was one of bone apposition which could account for a denser and more radiopaque endosteum.
