Mortification. State of a bone or of a portion of a bone deprived of life. The bone, in such case, is said to be necrosed. Necrosis may take place without the surrounding soft parts being struck with gangrene. It is to the bones what gangrene is to the soft parts. The part of the bone affected with necrosis becomes a foreign body, similar to the gangrenous eschar, and its separation must be accomplished by the efforts of nature, or by art. When necrosis occurs in the centre of long bones, it never extends to their articular extremities. The exterior layers of bone form a canal round the dead portion or sequestrum; between these swollen layers and the sequestrum; between these swollen layers and the sequestrum, suppuration takes place; the matter presses against the bony canal; perforates it, and is discharged by apertures, which become fistulous. In the treatment, the exit of the sequestrum must be facilitated by proper incisions, by the application of the trepan to the bone, &c.
