Abstract

Cruciate ligaments of the knee joint are important structures very often affected by the degenerative process in case of osteoarthritis. One of the most controversial issues in knee arthroplasty practice nowadays is the role of the posterior cruciate ligament. With foregoing studies authors have demonstrated the feasibility of DSC in the investigation of the musculoskeletal system. With current study authors established the thermal behaviour of healthy cruciate ligaments and detected the alterations in case of osteoarthritis. By establishing the DSC scans of the normal ligaments authors demonstrated clear differences between the posterior and anterior ligament. In addition alterations between normal and arthritic samples could be detected both in terms of changes in total enthalpy and heat capacity. Calorimetric findings have been verified by histological examinations as well.
