Cartilage thickness at different donor sites was determined. 5 mm. Topography showed the curvature of the lateral and medial trochlea donor sites to best match the curvature of recipient sites on the femoral condyle. 29 These data may assist surgeons in reconstructing the most optimal femoral articular surface. Duchow et al30 biomechanically evaluated the primary strength of press fit implanted osteochondral grafts with respect to graft size, harvesting conditions of graft, and repeated insertion after pullout.

In degenerative joint disease, joint surface congruity is decreased, producing decreased contact area, increased stress on articular cartilage, and in turn the predisposition for degenerative changes. Compressive and tensile stresses refer to the stresses that are perpendicular to the surface, whereas shear stress refers to the stresses that are parallel to the surface. Strain is a relative measure of deformation. It is equal to the change in length of an object divided by the original length of the object.

These negative charges require positive counter-ions such as calcium and sodium ions (positive ions in solution). These free ions give rise to an osmotic pressure also known as the Donnan effect. In addition, the negative GAG charges result in charge-tocharge repulsive forces. 5,10,11,14,15 The majority of proteoglycans in articular cartilage are of the aggrecan type. These are composed of a long protein core molecule with up to 100 GAGs covalently bound to the protein core (Fig. 1,5 Hyaluronate is an unusual GAG that is very large in size, not bound to a protein core, and without sulfate groups.
