The Objectives of the Cartilage Repair Registry is to Report Long Term Efficacy and Safety of Cartilage Repair Procedures in Registry Patients.
The objectives of the Cartilage Repair Registry is to report the long term efficacy and safety of cartilage repair procedures in Registry patients.
Observational Model: Case-Only
Carticel (autologous cultured chondrocyte) implantation
Registry contains data from patients whom were implanted by 1123 surgeons in the U.S. and also data captured on patients treated

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Large HYALURONAN-containing proteoglycans found in articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR). They form into aggregates that provide tissues with the capacity to resist high compressive and tensile forces.
A degenerative joint disease involving the SPINE. It is characterized by progressive deterioration of the spinal articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR), usually with hardening of the subchondral bone and outgrowth of bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE).
A type of CARTILAGE characterized by a homogenous amorphous matrix containing predominately TYPE II COLLAGEN and ground substance. Hyaline cartilage is found in ARTICULAR CARTILAGE; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; and the NASAL SEPTUM.
Alveolar Ridge Augmentation
Preprosthetic surgery involving rib, cartilage, or iliac crest bone grafts, usually autologous, or synthetic implants for rebuilding the alveolar ridge.
This study is a prospective, longitudinal, multi-center, within patient evaluation of patients with articular cartilage defects of the knee who have had an inadequate response to a prior n...
The purpose of this study is to measure the outcomes of patients who have articular cartilage lesions in the patellofemoral joint and are treated with the Autologous Chondrocyte Implantati...
An open clinical trial transplanting CHONDRON (autologous chondrocytes) to ankle cartilage defect patients who are appropriate for the trial, and evaluating the validity and safety for 12...
This investigator-sponsored trial attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of Chondron transplantation by tracking subjects who had the Chondron implantation to observe effectiveness.
The Cartilage Autograft Implantation System (CAIS) is designed as a single surgical treatment of damaged knee cartilage using the subject's own healthy cartilage obtained from a non-weight...
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and arthroscopy have frequently been used to evaluate articular cartilage. Many studies have compared the accuracy of MRI to that of arthroscopy. However, there have b...
Injured articular cartilage is limited in it's capacity to heal. Autologous chondrocyte transplantation (ACT) is a suitable technique for cartilage repair, but it requires articular cartilage biopsies...
Despite introduction of autologous chondrocyte therapy for repair of hyaline articular cartilage injury in 1994, microfracture remains a primary standard of care. NeoCart, an autologous cartilage tiss...
No reported postoperative evaluation method is accurately correlated with the clinical outcome of repaired cartilage after autologous chondrocyte implantation. This study investigated the correlation...
Few studies have assessed the results of autologous chondrocyte implantation in patients with high-impact activities. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the early functional outcome and activit...
