Abstract

The nerve distribution to the knee joints was analyzed in 5 cadavers and 10 joint capsules specimens were resected during total knee arthroplasty. We found nerve fibers immunoreactive for anti-substance P antibody in the articular capsule. By confocal laser scanning microscopy, we evaluated the three-dimensional structures of the Ruffini's corpuscles and the free nerve endings, both of which were immunoreactive for anti-protein gene product 9.5.
