Effects of calcified cartilage
on healing of chondral defects treated with microfracture in horses.
These lesions are described as chondral (limited to the cartilage surface) or osteo- chondral (extending beyond the calcified cartilage

had compared the amount of bounded bovine chondrocytes on various surfaces of middle deep zone bone or calcified cartilage
or hyaline cartilage.
Synovial chondromatosis can be confused with tumoral CPPDCD, especially when heavily calcified cartilage
matrix may obscure its cartilaginous nature.

3] Thus primitive calcified cartilage
persists in abundance and medullary space is never allowed to form.
The bodies tend to have a "popcorn ball" appearance characteristic of calcified cartilage
1) Although CT is not the best imaging modality for evaluation of the uncalcified cartilage cap, calcified cartilage
can be well depicted on CT.
Finally, the calcified cartilage
zone, the region just below the tidemark, has few cells with low metabolic activity.
Next, the calcified cartilage
at the base of the lesion is completely removed.
Cullen, 25, will undergo surgery to have his cartilage tidied up and bits of calcified cartilage

9) The debridement should include resection of all unstable cartilage back to a stable rim, with abrasion of exposed calcified cartilage
