Disler DG, McCauley TR. Clinical magnetic resonance imaging of articular cartilage. Top Magn Reson Imaging 1998; 9:360-376. Chapter 2 Functional Anatomy and Structure of the “Osteochondral Unit” Timothy J. Mosher The primary function of articular cartilage is to provide a smooth transfer of force across joints. As such it is useful to consider the cartilage and the underlying subchondral bone as a functional osteochondral unit that must withstand a combination of compressive, tensile, and shear stresses.
With increasing depth, the collagen matrix assumes a more oblique orientation (transitional zone), ultimately becoming perpendicular to the articular surface in the deep radial zone. 9 In the deep layer of cartilage near bone, collagen fibrils have a preferential orientation perpendicular to the bone surface. This is frequently termed the radial zone, referring to the radial orientation of the collagen matrix10 as well as the columnar alignment of chondrocytes observed in this layer. 8,11 Initial studies of the transitional zone suggested a decreased level of orientation of collagen fibrils in this layer; however, more recent studies using MRI12 and cryofracture scanning electron microscopy13 demonstrate anisotropy in this layer with a preferential orientation oblique to the articular surface.
