Frozen osteoarticular grafts treated with liquid nitrogen are utilized for joint reconstruction after tumor resection, but the joints may subsequently develop osteoarthritic changes. To preserve articular cartilage from cryoinjury, we modified a vitrification method utilized for embryo cryopreservation and demonstrated in vitro that our vitrification protocol was effective for protecting cartilage from cryoinjury. In this study, we investigated in vivo whether this vitrification method could… CONTINUE READING
