PurposeTo demonstrate that iliac crest cartilage may be used to repair articular cartilage defects in the knees of rabbits.MethodsFull-thickness cartilage defects were created in the medial femoral condyle on both knees of 36 New Zealand white rabbits. The 72 defects were randomly assigned to be repaired with ipsilateral iliac crest cartilage (Group I), osteochondral tissues removed at defect creation (Group II), or no treatment (negative control, Group III). Animals were killed at 6, 12, and… CONTINUE READING
