The use of absorbable co-polymer pads with alginate and cells for articular cartilage repair in rabbits.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the effect of polyglycolic acid (PGA)-polylactic acid (PLA) co-polymer pads with calcium alginate on chondrogenic gene expression for chondrocytes cultured in vitro. We also evaluated the ability of these absorbable pads with alginate to deliver chondrocytes and influence osteochondral defect repair in vivo in immature rabbit knees… (More)
