A technique for quantitative evaluation of articular cartilage condition at different levels of structural organization

Ступина Т.А., Щудло М.М.

Abstract


A technique for quantitative evaluation of the complex of articular cartilage parameters has been worked out at organic, tissue and cellular levels using half-thin sections of large area. The technique of quantitative evaluation proposed allows to get objective information on the degree of reactive-and-destructive changes and restorative processes in articular cartilage under limb lengthening, as well as it might be recommended for biopsy material processing for the purpose of joint pathology diagnostics and studying the influence of different factors on articular cartilage condition.
