A kind of cartilage with a fibrous matrix and approaching fibrous connective tissue in structure.
cartilago = gristle; a type of cartilage with many collagen fibres.
Fibrocartilage is a tough kind of cartilage in which there are dense bundles or fibers in the matrix. It is found in the intervertebral disks and pubic symphysis.
The type of cartilage made up of parallel, thick, compact bundles, separated by narrow clefts containing typical cartilage cells (chondrocytes).
A type of cartilage (connective tissue), which is distinguished from other cartilages by the small size and numbers of chondrocytes and lacunae, differential staining, and close resemblance to dense regular connective tissue. It is found in the intervertebral discs. Fibrous tunic The outer wall of the eyeball that is composed of dense connective tissue, it contains the sclera and the cornea.
Cartilage containing an abundance of collagen fibers; located around the edges of joints, in the intervertebral discs, the menisci of the knee, and so on.
cartilage that is largely composed of fibers like those in ordinary connective tissue
A tough cartilage in which there are dense bundles of collagen fibres in the matrix.
In nonsynovial joints, one of three types of connective tissue that joins the involved bones. Fibrocartilage (symphyses secondary cartilaginous joints) is found in the intervertebral discs with a fluid-filled central cavity, and in the pubis, the front arch of the pelvis, with a hollow central cavity.
a variety of cartilage that contains collagen and appears as a transition between tendons, ligaments or bones.
A type of cartilage that has thick collagen fibers in the matrix
White fibrocartilage consists of a mixture of white fibrous tissue and cartilaginous tissue in various proportions; to the former of these constituents it owes its flexibility and toughness, and to the latter its elasticity.
