Fluid nature allows quick recovery after compression quotchondroquot l cartilage Produced by chondroblasts o Secrete matrix GAGs collagen and elastic bers Become trapped in lucanae Become chondrocytes Little vascularization and innervation therefore it takes a longer time to heal but you won t feel the pain because there are no nerves 0 Relies on perichondrium for nourishment and further growth chondroblasts 3 Major Types of Cartilage HyaHne 0 Looks glassy smooth 0 Most abundant most thin collagen bers few chondrocytes major component of epiphyseal plates Epiphyseal plates are normally in
