The localization and directional orientation of collagen fibers in articular cartilage is demonstrated by scanning electron microscopy and polarized light microscopy. Vertical sections of articular cartilage show different directional orientations of collagen fibers through all zones of cartilage depending upon whether the sections are parallel or perpendicular to the cleft pattern produced when the surface of articular cartilage is pierced with a round pointed awl. Sections parallel to the… CONTINUE READING
