Cartilage found within joint structures.
Smooth cartilage which protects the inside of the joint.
The smooth lining that covers and protects the bone ends inside a joint
a firm, resilient, slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in the joints
Cartilage lining the opposing bone surfaces at the body's joints.
Connective tissue that reduces friction between bony surfaces; found on the surfaces of bones within joints
Cartilage covering and protecting surfaces of bones or of a joint or joints
(awr-TIH-kyoo-lar KAWR-tih-lej) The cartilage that covers the end of a bone where it forms a joint with another bone.
The tough, elastic tissue that covers the ends of bones in joints and enables the bones to move smoothly over one another. When it is damaged through injury or a lifetime of use, it does not heal as rapidly or effectively as other tissues in the body. Instead, the damage tends to spread, allowing the bones to rub directly against each other and resulting in pain and reduced mobility.
covers the ends of bones and allows the distribution of compressive loads over the cross section of bones; provides frictionless and wear-resistant surface for joint movement.
cartilage that covers the ends of the bones; when healthy, it provides a frictionless and wear-resistant surface for joint movement.
Cartilage that covers the ends of bones where they meet in a joint.
Cartilage that cover the articular surfaces of the bone.
This smooth cartilage is hyaline cartilage. It caps the bones facing the synovial cavity.
Usually hyaline, located on the articular surfaces of bones within a synovial joint. image
tough, rubbery tissue that forms the surface of bones within joints (see Arthritis).
The cartilage pad that covers the surface of a bone inside a joint cavity.
Tissues that cover the ends of bones.
Cartilage which covers surface of bones forming synovial joint; also called hyaline cartilage.
