Definition:Cone-shaped epiphyses (also known as coned epiphyses) are epiphyses that invaginate into cupped metaphyses. That is, the epiphysis has a cone-shaped distal extension resulting from increased growth of the central portion of the epiphysis relative to its periphery.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Cone-shaped end part of bone;   Cone-shaped epiphyses
