Tthis tissue consists of a three-dimensional network of bone trabeculae that form a system of large and irregular vascular cavities. These cavities contain blood vessels and bone marrow cells within loose connective tissue. Trabeculae are composed of bone plates of variable thickness (3-7 µm), which are distinct layers of extracellular matrix formed by parallel collagen fibers, and regularly distributed osteocytes.
