A model to predict the permeation kinetics of dimethyl sulfoxide in articular cartilage.


Cryopreservation of articular cartilage (AC) has excited great interest due to the practical surgical importance of this tissue. Characterization of permeation kinetics of cryoprotective agents (CPA) in AC is important for designing optimal CPA addition/removal protocols to achieve successful cryopreservation. Permeation is predominantly a mass diffusion… (More)
