The authors had devised a novel biphasic scaffold combining hyaluronic acid and atelocallagen for the chondral phase and combining hydroxyapatite and beta-tricalcium phosphate for the osseous phase. Sixty-four osteochondral defects were created in the knee joints of 16 minipigs to evaluate the effectiveness of this scaffold for repairing cartilage in a large animal model. The defects were divided into five groups according to their treatment: filling with a cell/biphasic scaffold composite… CONTINUE READING
