UNLABELLED In order to determine the effect of subfracture loads on articular cartilage, we impacted twelve adult canine patellofemoral joints utilizing a drop-tower with two different force-levels. The joints were examined with light and electron microscopy at two, four, and six weeks after impaction. In ten additional animals a single knee was impacted and they were analyzed biochemically at similar time-periods, using the contralateral joint as a control. In all impacted specimens changes… CONTINUE READING
