From: Spatiotemporal gait compensations following medial collateral ligament and medial meniscus injury in the rat: correlating gait patterns to joint damage

Fig. 10

Visualization of correlations between histological evidence of joint damage and pain-related behaviors following MCLT and MCLT + MMT surgery in the rat. Whereas medial joint capsule repair correlated to tactile sensitivity in the MCLT sham group, medial joint capsule repair did not associate with tactile sensitivity in the MCLT + MMT group (top). Instead, cartilage matrix loss width at the surface correlated to tactile sensitivity in the MCLT + MMT group, despite evidence of cartilage damage in the MCLT sham group. Also, whereas correlations between stride length residual and injured limb (right) single-limb support phase could be identified in the MCLT + MMT group, similar gait changes could be identified in the MCLT sham despite evidence of joint damage (middle and bottom panels, respectively).
