Collagen fibril distribution and surface and volume densities in proximal tibial articular cartilage were measured in 6- and 12-month-old Dunkin-Hartley guinea pigs developing primary osteoarthritis. At 12 months, gross fibrillation and ulceration of the articular cartilage were observed on the medial but not on the lateral condyle. Collagen volume density decreased with age in the interterritorial compartments in the superficial zone, medially by 16% and laterally by 8%. In the upper radial zone, collagen volume density decreased interterritorially by 10% on the medial condyle only. Despite gross osteoarthritic changes, only moderate and predominantly focal ultrastructural collagen changes were observed. Thus neither gross network disruption nor fibril thickening seems to be a general feature in early guinea pig osteoarthritis.
