From: Cyclical loading causes injury in and around the porcine proximal femoral physeal plate: proposed cause of the development of cam deformity in young athletes

Figure 5

In the vertically loaded specimens the injuries of the physeal line (black arrows) lay perpendicular to the physeal line, parallel to the cellular columns of the physeal line. On this microscopic picture, a fracture (white arrows) extending from the epiphyseal bone (above) through the physeal line and into metaphyseal bone (below) is seen.
