The role of subchondral circulation in the physiology of load transmission

Abstract:

Although the blood supply of bone at rest is well defined, the way in which skeletal activity might affect perfusion under active joints has received little attention. Intraosseous pressure (IOP) has been studied for several decades and was thought to be raised in osteonecrosis, arthritis and bone pain but there has been difficulty in defining IOP and using it for clinical purposes. This work aims to explore subchondral physiology during loading and to seek supporting evidence for a speci...
