Cartilage 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.

Procedures 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.
