It has long been known that the joint cartilages, as age advances, tend to undergo certain changes which render them less resilient and less able to withstand injury. These have been referred to as regressive or involutionary (Collins, 1949, p. 100), but their true nature is still obscure. The gross and microscopic features of so-called age-changes in the joints have been well studied in large series of individuals by Heine (1926) and Bennett, Waine, and Bauer (1942), and they are of the same… CONTINUE READING
