Scanning electron microscopy of elastic system fibers in the articular disc of the rat mandibular joint.

Abstract

Elastic system fibers (ESFs), i.e., microfibrils (putative oxytalan fibers), elaunin and elastic (true elastin) fibers, in the rat mandibular joint were studied mainly using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy (LM) with the aid of image processing. The present quantitative analysis using LM showed that the articular disc and capsule… (More)
