Abstract  

Meniscus degeneration is a very frequent disease of human beings mainly in the developed countries. The ability of the meniscus to participate in load bearing, shock absorption, joint lubrication, and joint stability depends on the maintenance of its structural integrity. Therefore the pathology of the degeneration has been subject of many publications before. These studies all agreed that the grade of the degeneration correlated with the patient’s age, weight, profession, and athletic activity [1]. These reviews also described the biochemical changes in the structure, too [2, 3]. In the current study authors examined degenerated human meniscus with differential scanning calorimetry and demonstrated thermal differences between healthy and intraoperatively removed pathological samples.
