is a broad term that includes a variety of different dense
connective tissue organs. The common morphologic characteristic
of all cartilage is that the cells are housed in lacunae. Cartilaginous
organs are usually classified into three basic subgroups based
on the morphologic characteristics of their extracellular
matrix: hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage, and elastic cartilage.
to repair focal articular cartilage defects often result in
poor integration between the host cartilage and the graft
tissue, and this may be related to the lack of matrix deposition
and the death of chondrocytes near a cut cartilage surface.
