epiphyseal plate

growth plate

Area of cartilage between the end of the bone (epiphysis) and the shaft of the bone (diaphysis) which is responsible for bone growth in length. When growth is completed the epiphyseal plate becomes ossified (bone replaces cartilage),  and the epiphyseal plate becomes the epiphyseal line. This happens at different times in different bones.
