Cartilage defects occur in approximately 12% of the population and can result in significant function impairment and reduction in quality of life. Evidence for the variety of surgical treatments available is inconclusive. This study aimed to compare the clinical outcomes of patients with symptomatic cartilage defects treated with matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI™ or microfracture (MF). Included patients were ≥18 and ≤50 years of age with symptomatic, post-traumatic… CONTINUE READING
