Meniscal healing is well known to be region-specific, and this is thought to be mainly due to its specific vascularity. The purpose of this study was to assess regional differences in the intrinsic healing potential of the meniscus, using an organ culture model to eliminate the influence of microvasculature and the synovium. A full-thickness circular defect, 1.5 mm in diameter, was created in the inner avascular zone in meniscal explants from rabbits. As a control, a column of 1.5 mm in… CONTINUE READING
