In both children and adults, the periosteum provides a pool of progenitor cells endowed with the potential to differentiate into an osteochondrogenic cell lineage as part of the fracture healing process [3,4].
In recent studies, endothelial cells have been demonstrated to participate in tissue calcification by providing osteochondrogenic cells via the endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition.
