Results equivalent for patients undergoing microfracture and autologous chondrocyte implantation

May 22, 2015

CHICAGO — Patients who underwent microfracture for treatment of a full-thickness cartilage defect in the knee experienced equal clinical and radiological long-term outcomes compared with those who underwent autologous chondrocyte implantation, according to a presenter here.

“We can conclude that both [microfracture and autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI)] show significant improvement in functional long-term outcomes and a moderate radiological outcome,” Benjamin Erdle, MD, said at the International Cartilage Repair Society Annual Meeting. “At least with this group of patients, the first generation of ACI with a periostal flap seems to be inferior to microfracturing concerning the functional long-term outcome and, in this case, independent of lesion size.”
