Observations on the intrinsic blood supply to the human patella: disruption correlated with articular surface degeneration.

Abstract

The intrinsic blood supplies of 13 human patellae with varying degrees of articular surface degeneration were studied by perfusion techniques. Disruption of the normal pattern of arterial arcades correlated with increasing surface wear.
