A proposed in vitro model for investigating the mechanisms of ‘joint cracking’: a short report of preliminary techniques and observations

March 15, 2017

Joint “cracking” is common but not a clearly understood audible phenomenon. In this brief report we propose an in-vitro model to potentially assist in revealing a mechanism for, and therefore source of, this phenomenon. Using a suction cup under tension and de-nucleated fluid to simulate synovial fluid, an audible release with intra-articular cavity formation was
