Mechanical properties of articular cartilage are controlled by tissue composition and structure. Cartilage function is sensitively altered during tissue degeneration, in osteoarthritis (OA). However, mechanical properties of the tissue cannot be determined non-invasively. In the present study, we evaluate the feasibility to predict, without mechanical testing, the stress-relaxation response of human articular cartilage under unconfined compression. This is carried out by combining microscopic… CONTINUE READING
