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. Following a severe impact, calculated to correspond to the energy density over the cartilage surface that might be expected in a man jumping off a 1-m-high wall, the tissue was grossly disrupted. It became elliptical, fissured, and flattened. Cartilage samples remaining attached to the underlying bone… CONTINUE READING
