Abstract

Articular cartilage is a unique biphasic tissue composed of chondrocytes surrounded by extracellular matrix (ECM). This thin layer of tissue covers the articular surface of diarthroidal joints and provides a durable, low friction interface which also helps to reduce the load transmitted to the underlying subchondral bone.
