Abstract

A partial biomechanical topography of the porcine temporomandibular joint (TMJ) tissue was performed, and findings were correlated to histochemical and histomorphological measures. The tissues tested within the articular surfaces of the temporal fossa and the condyle were the articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Significant differences were found in the intrinsic material properties and thickness of the cartilage in the temporal and condylar surfaces. Evaluating the results in reference to previous cross-species and cross-joint studies of similar methodology, the porcine TMJ articular cartilage for both sites were characterized as highly-permeable, soft tissues possessing low recovery potential.
