BACKGROUND Both microfracture (MFX) and matrix associated autologous cartilage transplantation (MACT) are currently used to treat cartilage defects of the talus. T2 mapping of the ankle at 7 T has the potential to assess the collagen fibril network organization of the native hyaline cartilage and of the repair tissue (RT). This study provides first results regarding the properties of cartilage RT after MFX (mean follow-up: 113.8 months) and MACT (65.4 months). METHODS A multi-echo spin-echo… CONTINUE READING
