[An experimental study on early changes of articular cartilages in subluxated patella of rabbits].


The pathogenesis and clinical progress of chondromalacia patellae have not been well studied in experimental models. We, therefore, studied the patellar subluxation produced experimentally in rabbit knees. In this model, sequential changes of the patellar cartilage were followed by simple X-rays, CT, macroscopic, histologic and scanning electron microscopic… (More)
