A new device to detect early cartilage degeneration.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Currently available arthroscopic techniques do not allow the quantification of cartilage stiffness without direct mechanical indentation or penetration of the tissue. PURPOSE A novel device, capable of quantifying cartilage stiffness during arthroscopy, is believed to detect degenerated cartilage. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study… (More)
