The graft ideally should fill in the defect and be level with the articular surface
As a result, the growth of the cartilage was complete and significant, and besides, it had resurfaced the articular surface
of the femur (figures 7 and 9).
The articular surfaces
of the knees also have some arthritic lipping (Sager Grade I: see Brothwell 1981) and pitting (Sager Grade II), where the protecting cartilage of the joint has been damaged and worn.
However, when each measurement was normalized by the humeral head diameter, only humeral dimensions 8, 11 to 14, 16, 18, and humeral head articular surface
area were observed to be significantly larger for male humeri than female humeri.
The patella was rotated about 70-80 degrees with the articular surface
The TFCC is comprised of several structures including a biconcave articular disc that is contiguous with the articular surface
of the distal radius.
For diagnoses based on the MR images, the presence of an accessory cleft indicated adductor dysfunction, and articular surface
irregularities and paraarticular bone edema indicated osteitis pubis.
1) Thus, with meniscal injury in which there is partial or complete loss of the functioning meniscus, loads transmitted to the articular surface
increase dramatically, in turn making the articular cartilage vulnerable to injury and degeneration.
The correct surgical technique is most important, and the articular surface
of the transplanted articular cartilage must be flush with the adjacent articular surface
The characteristic intraoperative findings of gout with coverage of the articular surface
by the white, chalky paste material is consistent with the diagnosis of gouty arthritis.
The Zimmer Trabecular Metal Total Ankle consists of a talar component, a tibial base component, and a modular tibial articular surface
, available in six different sizes to accommodate variations in patient anatomy.
5 cm posterior to the anterior border of the articular surface
, just medial to the attachment of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus.
Since this joint is the most proximal of the 3 thumb joints, laxness of its restraints from either ligament destruction or joint collapse sets the stage for articular surface
wear and tear, together with zigzag collapse in the more distal joints.
Bony defects in the anterior inferior glenoid can diminish the arc and surface area of the articular surface
and reduce the depth of the glenoid socket, which allow for greater propensity for subluxation or dislocation.
if the stem extension does not fully seat due to thread misalignment, the articular surface
may not fully lock and disassociation may occur.
