Viability Assessment of Chondrocytes Obtained from Flap Type Injuries in Patients with FAI

Abstract

The cartilage damage of the hip secondary to FAI occurs mainly in the chondro-labral junction and progresses from loss of fixation to the subchondral bone (ie wave sign) to cleavage tear with an obvious separation of the chondrolabral junction but no delamination, to macroscopic debonding of the articular cartilage from the acetabular bone (also known as delamination or flap). The end stage involves exposed bone in the acetabulum [8, 9].
