A bovine cartilage explant system was used to evaluate the effects of injurious compression on chondrocyte apoptosis and matrix biochemical and biomechanical properties within intact cartilage. Disks of newborn bovine articular cartilage were compressed in vitro to various peak stress levels and chondrocyte apoptotic cell death, tissue biomechanical properties, tissue swelling, glycosaminoglycan loss, and nitrite levels were quantified. Chondrocyte apoptosis occurred at peak stresses as low as…

Biosynthetic response and mechanical properties of articular cartilage after injurious compression
Human chondrocyte apoptosis in response to mechanical injury.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mechanical injury induces chondrocyte apoptosis and release of GAG from the matrix and suggests that a therapeutic window may exist where apoptosis could be inhibited.
Short-term changes in cell and matrix damage following mechanical injury of articular cartilage explants and modelling of microphysical mediators.
TLDR
Modifications to an existing fiber-reinforced poroelastic finite element model were introduced and the model was used for data interpretation and identification of microphysical events involved in cell and matrix injury, suggesting multiple independent pathways of mechanically-induced cell death and matrix degradation.
Quantification of Chondrocyte Death and Proteoglycan Content in Mechanically Impacted Articular Cartilage
TLDR
The magnitude of an impact load can significantly affect the degree of matrix changes throughout the depth of articular cartilage tissue over time.
Proteoglycan degradation after injurious compression of bovine and human articular cartilage in vitro: interaction with exogenous cytokines.
TLDR
By attempting to incorporate interactions with other joint tissues that may be sources of cytokines, in vitro models of mechanical cartilage injury may explain aspects of the interactions between mechanical forces and degradative pathways which lead to OA progression.
Impact of Mechanical Trauma on Matrix and Cells
TLDR
This study identifies a new approach to limit traumatic cartilage injury and the subsequent development of secondary osteoarthritis through the use of a pan-caspase inhibitor, z-VAD.fmk in preventing chondrocyte apoptosis in human articular cartilage explants.
Rolling–sliding load decreases the loss of chondrocyte viability and the mechanical properties of cartilage explants preserved in vitro
TLDR
It is suggested that suitable mechanical stimulation decreases the loss of chondrocyte viability and the mechanical properties of cartilage explants in vitro and improves cartilage preservation.

TLDR
It is suggested that the physical strength of normal cartilage limits its ability to withstand cyclical impact, and ion‐induced swelling in 0.01 M NaCl and self‐diffusion of water in the deeper zones of the explant were increased, consistent with changes in structure at the molecular level.
Changes in cartilage composition and physical properties due to stromelysin degradation.
TLDR
Exposure of intact cartilage to SLN caused specific, molecular-level degradation of matrix molecules, which resulted in changes in the swelling behavior and marked deterioration of functional physical properties of the tissue.
Biosynthetic response of cartilage explants to dynamic compression
TLDR
This study provides a framework for identifying both the physical and biological mechanisms by which dynamic compression can modulate chondrocyte biosynthesis and potentially allows in vitro evaluation of clinical strategies of continuous passive motion therapy to stimulate cartilage remodeling.
Matrix damage and chondrocyte viability following a single impact load on articular cartilage.
An impact load was applied to full-depth circular samples of articular cartilage in vitro and the effects of impact energy and velocity on matrix integrity and chondrocyte viability were studied.
Chondrocyte apoptosis and nitric oxide production during experimentally induced osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Observations suggest that, during the early phases of OA, NO production may lead to chondrocyte apoptosis, and that both events contribute to the pathogenesis of cartilage degradation.
The reactions of articular cartilage to experimental wounding: role of apoptosis.
TLDR
There are 2 contrasting, but related, responses to cartilage wounding--apoptosis and proliferation, and future studies need to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms that determine these responses.
Linkage of chondrocyte apoptosis and cartilage degradation in human osteoarthritis.
TLDR
Increased chondrocyte apoptosis and proteoglycan depletion are anatomically linked and may be mechanistically related.
