Marrow stimulation techniques (MSTs) such as subchondral drilling and microfracture are often chosen as first-line treatment options for symptomatic cartilage defects of the knee. When an MST fails, many cartilage restoration techniques are employed, including autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and osteochondral allograft (OCA). However, a few series in the literature suggest that ACI after a failed MST results in inferior outcomes as compared with primary ACI.

The goal of this study is to determine whether harvested cartilage from an osteochondral loose body maintains the same viability for implantation as cartilage harvested from the traditional locations ...
Articular cartilage is a complex tissue with unique properties that are essential for normal joint function. Many processes can result in cartilage injury, ranging from acute trauma to degenerative pr...
We present the case of a 31-year-old male with debilitating post-traumatic arthritis of the ankle secondary to osteonecrosis of the tibial plafond. He was treated with a custom-cut tibial osteochondra...
Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) provides a successful outcome for treating articular cartilage lesions. However, there have been very few reports on the clinical outcomes of revision ACI for...
Recently, a cell identity assay has been introduced to evaluate the identity of cultured chondrocytes before autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), which was shown to be associated with graft surv...
Numerous surgical techniques have been developped for the treatment of chondral and osteochondral defects of the knee. Among those techniques autologous chondrocyte transplantation (ACT) w...
This is a study comparing the current standard of care surgical treatment to a newer surgical procedure involving the implantation of osteochondral allograft at the base of the thumb. Pati...
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...
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...
This investigator-sponsored trial attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of Chondron transplantation by tracking subjects who had the Chondron implantation to observe effectiveness.
Transplantation from another site in or on the body of the individual receiving it.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Transfer of MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).
Transplantation of tissue typical of one area to a different recipient site. The tissue may be autologous, heterologous, or homologous.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
