From meniscus to bone: a quantitative evaluation of structure and function of the human meniscal attachments.

Abstract

Meniscus efficacy at promoting joint congruity and preventing osteoarthritis hinges on enthesis integrity. Gross-scale tensile testing, histomorphometry and magnetic resonance imaging reveal significant differences between the four attachments, implying that each must endure a unique mechanical environment, which dictates their structure. However, little… (More)
