This prospective study evaluated the intermediate-term outcomes of operatively treating primary osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT) of 1.5 cm(2) or smaller with arthroscopic excision, microfracture, and allograft cartilage extracellular matrix (ECM).

Clinical results of autologous osteochondral transplantation (AOT) for treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus have been mixed. T1ρ imaging can be used to noninvasively detect early cartilage...
The ideal treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT) is debatable. The TruFit plug has been investigated as a potential treatment method for osteochondral defects. This is a biphasic scaffo...
Osteochondral lesions of the distal tibial plafond (OLTP) are rare and far less common than osteochondral lesions of the talus. Literature data do not report clinical records with significant number o...
Osteochondral lesions of the medial talus (OLT) frequently lead to chronic ankle pain and osteoarthritis. Arthroscopic debridement, subchondral bone stimulation by drilling, and microfracturing are op...
Microfracture is the most common cartilage-reparative procedure for the treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs). Damage to the subchondral bone (SCB) during microfracture may irreversib...
Aim of the study is to evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients undergone all-arthroscopic autologous matrix induced chondrogenesis for symptomatic osteochondral talar lesio...
The trial evaluates the clinical efficacy and safety of autologous osteo-periosteal cylinder graft transplantation for Hepple V osteochondral lesions of the talus. Half of participants wil...
Patients who have a large enough defect in their knee cartilage will sometimes undergo surgery to transplant donor cartilage tissue into their defect in an attempt to repair the knee. The ...
This is a prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing synthetic cartilage implantation versus osteochondral autograft transfer for treatment of first metatarsophalangeal (...
By means of the Ankle Spacer patients will be implanted, the clinical and radiological results of which will be prospectively recorded and analyzed at different points in time.
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.
A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains ELASTIC FIBERS and elastic lamellae, in addition to the normal components of HYALINE CARTILAGE matrix. Elastic cartilage is found in the EXTERNAL EAR; EUSTACHIAN TUBE; EPIGLOTTIS; and LARYNX.
A non-vascular form of connective tissue composed of CHONDROCYTES embedded in a matrix that includes CHONDROITIN SULFATE and various types of FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN. There are three major types: HYALINE CARTILAGE; FIBROCARTILAGE; and ELASTIC CARTILAGE.
A benign neoplasm derived from mesodermal cells that form cartilage. It may remain within the substance of a cartilage or bone (true chondroma or enchondroma) or may develop on the surface of a cartilage (ecchondroma or ecchondrosis). (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
Pathological processes involving the chondral tissue (CARTILAGE).
