Previous studies in our laboratory have shown that surgical induction of anterior disk displacement (ADD) in the rabbit craniomandibular joint (CMJ) leads to cellular and extracellular alterations consistent with osteoarthritis. Similar findings were also reported in human ADD as well as osteoarthritis of other joints. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that experimentally produced perforations in the discs of Macaca fascicularis monkeys lead to osteoarthrosis. Synovial membrane hyperplasia also was demonstrated in monkey and human joints with disc perforations. The hypothesis was advanced that a synovial flap obtained from within the affected joint would be the most(More)
Glycoconjugates of the extracellular matrix are important for the normal mechanical functions of connective tissue structures such as the temporomandibular joint disc. Since lectins are known to bind to sugar residues with high affinity, a variety of lectins were used to study the presence and distribution of glycoconjugates in the temporomandibular joint(More)
