BACKGROUND Various approaches have been proposed to treat articular cartilage lesions, which are plagued by inherent limited healing potential. PURPOSE To compare the clinical outcome of patients treated with second-generation autologous chondrocyte implantation implants with those treated with the microfracture repair technique at 5-year follow-up. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2. METHODS Eighty active patients (mean age, 29.8 years) and grade III to IV cartilage lesions… CONTINUE READING
