Background The histologic appearance of the repair tissue after articular cartilage resurfacing procedures in humans is not well documented. Hypothesis The histologic and immunohistochemical appearance of the repair tissues in failed articular cartilage resurfacing procedures will be similar, regardless of the procedure that was done, and will not resemble normal articular cartilage. Study Design Case series; Level of evidence, 4. Methods Graft tissue from 10 patients who underwent an… Expand
Morphological Assessment of MACI Grafts in Patients with Revision Surgery and Total Joint Arthroplasty.
TLDR
MACI grafts in patients with revision and total joint arthroplasty were predominantly fibrocartilage in repair type, did not differ in composition and were histologically dissimilar to healthy cartilage. Expand
Evaluation and analysis of graft hypertrophy by means of arthroscopy, biochemical MRI and osteochondral biopsies in a patient following autologous chondrocyte implantation for treatment of a full-thickness-cartilage defect of the knee
TLDR
The present case report provides a rare case of extensive graft hypertrophy following ACI using an autologous spheres technique with clinical progression over time, which demonstrates a high quality of repair tissue within the hypertrophic as well as non-hypertrophic transplanted areas of the repair tissue. Expand
Failed cartilage repair for early osteoarthritis defects: a biochemical, histological and immunohistochemical analysis of the repair tissue after treatment with marrow-stimulation techniques
TLDR
Failed marrow stimulation of articular cartilage defects in patients with early osteoarthritis is characterized by fibrocartilaginous repair, and the balance of cell number to extracellular matrix is shifted towards an increased cell number in this tissue. Expand
Histological analysis of failed cartilage repair after marrow stimulation for the treatment of large cartilage defect in medial compartmental osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that marrow stimulation resulted in failed cartilage repair for the treatment of large cartilage defects in osteoarthritic knees, and the results suggest that arthroscopic marrow stimulation might not improve clinical symptoms for the long term in patients suffering large bone marrow-stimulating cartilage defect. Expand
Particulated juvenile articular cartilage allograft transplantation for osteochondral lesions of the knee and ankle
TLDR
Particulated Juvenile Cartilage Allograft Transplantation has shown promise for lesions of the knee and ankle, and benefits include ease of application, potential for arthroscopic or minimally invasive delivery, no need for perpendicular access, no donor site morbidity, and delivery of viable chondrocytes in hyaline cartilage. Expand
Clinical, Radiographic, and Histological Outcomes After Cartilage Repair With Particulated Juvenile Articular Cartilage
TLDR
For the patient population investigated, the clinical outcomes of the PJAC technique showed a significant improvement over baseline, with histologically favorable repair tissue 2 years postoperatively, demonstrating a rapid, safe, and effective treatment for cartilage defects. Expand
Autologous costal chondral transplantation and costa-derived chondrocyte implantation: emerging surgical techniques
TLDR
The fundamental properties of costal cartilage are introduced and costa-derived chondrocyte implantation and costal chondral/osteochondral transplantation are summarized, which might be up-and-coming surgical techniques for recalcitrant cartilage lesions. Expand
Role of Particulated Juvenile Cartilage Allograft Transplantation in Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: A systematic review.
TLDR
PJCAT seems to be a promising modality of treatment for OLT in terms of functional outcomes and fair attempts of defect filling can be confirmed with MRI. Expand
T2 assessment and clinical outcome following autologous matrix-assisted chondrocyte and osteochondral autograft transplantation.
TLDR
Findings indicate that MACT and OCT result in a different ultrastructural outcome, which is only partially represented by the clinical picture. Expand
Treatment of unstable knee osteochondritis dissecans in the young adult: results and limitations of surgical strategies—The advantages of allografts to address an osteochondral challenge
TLDR
Fresh allografts may offer articular surface restoration with viable physiologic osteochondral tissue providing a predictably successful outcome, and therefore they may currently represent the most suitable option to treat unstable irreparable OCD lesion in young adults. Expand

Microfracture: surgical technique and rehabilitation to treat chondral defects.
TLDR
The senior author (JRS) developed the microfracture technique to enhance chondral resurfacing by providing a suitable environment for new tissue formation and taking advantage of the body's own healing potential. Expand
Current concepts in the treatment of articular cartilage defects.
TLDR
In the future, physiologic repair also may become possible using mesenchymal stem cells or chondrocytes delivered surgically in an ex vivo-derived matrix to allow implantation of mature biosynthetic grafts which would allow treatment of larger defects with decreased rehabilitation and morbidity.

Autologous chondrocyte implantation for cartilage repair: monitoring its success by magnetic resonance imaging and histology
TLDR
Investigating patients treated with autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), some in conjunction with mosaicplasty, and developed objective, semiquantitative scoring schemes to monitor the repair tissue using MRI and histology indicate repair tissue to be on average 2.5 mm thick. Expand

TLDR
The experience with autologous chondrocyte transplantation during the past 13 years with in vitro chondROcyte expansion, cartilage harvest, and postoperative biopsy technique is discussed, and the latest followup of 213 consecutive patients in different subgroups with 2 to 10 years followup is presented.

TLDR
As demonstrated in this report, autologous, bone-marrow-derived, osteochondral progenitor cells can be isolated and grown in vitro without the loss of their capacity to differentiate into cartilage or bone. Expand
Articular Cartilage Lesions in 993 Consecutive Knee Arthroscopies
TLDR
Eleven percent of all knee arthroscopies show cartilage defects that may be suitable for cartilage Repair procedures, however, the natural history of these lesions and the number of patients that will benefit from a cartilage repair procedure are so far unknown. Expand
Failed Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation
TLDR
One patient who had complete resolution of his complaints, even during strenuous activities, after an autologous chondrocyte implantation but was admitted to the hospital with a locked knee 2 years after the implantation is reported on. Expand
Matrix turnover in human cartilage repair tissue in autologous chondrocyte implantation.
TLDR
The findings of this study indicate that ACI is capable of not only cartilage repair but, in some cases, regeneration by the turnover and remodeling of an initial fibrocartilaginous matrix via enzymatic degradation and synthesis of newly formed type II collagen. Expand
