Which Bones Are Long Bones?

Answer

The long bones include the femurs, tibias, fibulas, humeri, radii, ulnas, metacarpals and metatarsals. Long bones are those that grow primarily by elongation of the diaphysis at the ends of the growing bone. Bone growth is stimulated by the production of the growth hormone (GH) found in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland.
