Traumatic injury to a joint is known to increase the risk for the development of secondary osteoarthritis, but it is unclear how this process occurs. The existence of such a discrete event that can lead to an increased risk of osteoarthritis has spurred interest in developing in vitro models of traumatic joint injury. The current authors review some of the(More)
The unique biomechanical properties of healthy cartilage ensure that articular cartilage is able to transmit force between the joints while maintaining almost friction-free limb movement. In osteoarthritis, the biomechanical properties are compromised, but we still do not understood whether this precedes the onset of the disease or is a result of it. This(More)
