What major tissues comprise a synovial joint

A diarthrodial joint consists of hyaline cartilage covering the surfaces of two or more opposing bones. These articular tissues are surrounded by a capsule that is lined by synovium. Some joints contain menisci, which are made of fibrocartilage. Note that the joint cavity is a potential space. The pressure within normal joints is negative (−5.7 cm H 2 O) compared with ambient atmospheric pressure.
