A new device to detect early cartilage degeneration.


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)
