Osteochondrosis of the articular-epiphyseal cartilage complex (A-E complex) is a significant clinical disease in swine. It has been suggested that osteochondrosis is the underlying cause of osteochondritis dissecans in humans. The purpose of this investigation was to characterize the ultrastructural changes in the earliest macroscopically visible lesion of the epiphyseal cartilage in osteochondrosis of the A-E complex in swine. Osteochondritic epiphyseal cartilage from the distal femora and… CONTINUE READING
