The endosteum (plural endostea) is a thin vascular membrane of connective tissue that lines the inner surface of the bony tissue that forms the medullary cavity of long bones. Endosteum_sentence_0

This endosteal surface is usually resorbed during long periods of malnutrition, resulting in less cortical thickness. Endosteum_sentence_1

The outer surface of a bone is lined by a thin layer of connective tissue that is very similar in morphology and function to endosteum. Endosteum_sentence_2

It is called the periosteum, or the periosteal surface. Endosteum_sentence_3

During bone growth, the width of the bone increases as osteoblasts lay new bone tissue at the periosteum. Endosteum_sentence_4

To prevent the bone from becoming unnecessarily thick, osteoclasts resorb the bone from the endosteal side. Endosteum_sentence_5
