Long-term results of deep defects in articular cartilage. A scanning electron microscope study.


Core defects produced in the medial femoral condyle of the rabbit were studied by scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy over a period of 2 years. In some cases the defect was filled by hyaline articular cartilage with a fairly smooth surface, but in others the tissue was markedly fibrillated and resembled fibrous tissue and fibrocartilage… (More)
