Meniscus injury is one of the causes of secondary osteoarthritis (OA). However, the role of meniscus is still unclear. Human meniscal distribution of cells and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) and their changes in advanced OA were analyzed. Thirty-one medial menisci from patients with knee OA that underwent a total knee arthroplasty were studied.(More)
Secondary knee osteoarthritis (OA) is currently associated with meniscal injuries, but the pathogenesis is unclear. We analyzed the distribution of cells and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) and its changes in the early stages of degeneration in meniscus. Ten New Zealand rabbits underwent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-transection of the right(More)
