Abstract

Objective: Menisci are fibrocartilage tissue that have many functions in the knee joint. Studies showed the early progression of osteoarthrtic changes after meniscectomy. The osteoarthritic knee has some meniscal changes associated with articular cartilage degeneration. This study aimed to investigate the ultrastructural meniscal changes in degenerated knee joints.
