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).

Symptomatic osteochondral lesions of the talus remain a challenging problem due to inability for cartilage lesions to heal. Numerous treatment options exist, including nonoperative management, marrow ...
Management strategies for symptomatic osteochondral lesions of the talus are primarily surgical. Treatment options for symptomatic osteochondral lesions of the talus most commonly include bone marrow ...
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...
The purpose of the study was to assess the functional and radiologic outcomes after AT-AMIC (arthroscopic talus autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis) in 2 weight groups of patients with osteochond...
Extracellular matrix cartilage allografts (EMCAs) and particulate cartilage allografts (PCAs) are relatively new biologics that may improve the quality of cartilage regeneration after bone marrow stim...
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 ...
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.
This study is aimed at evaluating the feasibility and effectiveness of a completely natural tissue engineered cartilage, composed of a self-made tissue engineered oriented scaffold and aut...
114 patients between 18 and 50 years with an isolated focal cartilage defect in the knee will be randomized to either receive arthroscopic microfracture or arthroscopic debridement. Both g...
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)
