The posterior attachments of the dog knee joint lateral menisci have been studied to identify and characterize their mechanoreceptor innervation. Two basic types of mechanoreceptor were identified that appeared to be similar to the Type III and Type II endings described by Freeman & Wyke (1967) in cat knee periarticular tissues. Significantly, two distinct forms of Type II corpuscles were identified in this study, referred to as Types IIa and IIb, respectively. Endings were usually identified… CONTINUE READING
