Joint degeneration in the early stages of osteoarthritis (OA) may be reflected in changes in structural and material properties in articular cartilage. The aim of the present study was to simulate numerically the contact area and stress distribution in normal and "diseased" cartilage layers for dynamic loading. The initial stages of osteoarthritis were simulated based on an experimental model: the anterior cruciate ligament-transected cat knee. In this model, cartilage layers become thicker… CONTINUE READING
