Hi,
I've been researching but can't figure this out. If anyone can clear my confusion, I'm appreciative.
It seems that fibrocartilage is found in the knee, the pubic bones, & between vertebral bones. The pubic & vertebral bones are connected by a symphysis articulation. My confusion is the role the fibrocartilage in the synovial joint of the knee.
Thanks

Sorry I failed to notice that the meniscus is fibrocartilage. But feel more than free to elaborate.
