79 year old Senora Oztiohpurroses was the front seat passenger in a car accident. Because her seat belt and airbag did not function, her body hit the dashboard causing a fracture to her right superior pubic ramus. Subsequently during her stay in the hospital, she developed pneumonia and suffered fractures in bilateral posterior false ribs and her T12-L1 vertebral bodies due to coughing.
Why might her axial bones have fractured so easily? In your answer, include terms referring to the matrix and referring to at least one type of bone cell.
