Concentrated Bone Marrow Aspirate for the Treatment of Chondral Injuries and Osteoarthritis of the Knee

AJSM 2016

Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) has emerged as a novel treatment for pathology of the knee. Despite containing a limited number of stem cells, BMAC serves as a source of growth factors that are thought to play an important role as a result of their anabolic and anti-inflammatory effects. To our knowledge, there is no systematic […]

A Novel Posterior Arthrotomy Approach for the Treatment of a Large Osteochondral Defect of the Posterior Aspect of the Lateral Femoral Condyle of the Knee

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2013

Symptomatic osteochondral lesions of the knee pose a considerable treatment challenge to orthopaedic surgeons, particularly when they occur in young, active patients. This case report studies a patient with a large osteochondral lesion of the posterior aspect of the lateral femoral condyle of the knee. The study also outlines […]

Refrigerated Osteoarticular Allografts to Treat Articular Cartilage Defects of the Femoral Condyles

JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY 2009

Because of concerns about infections with the use of fresh osteoarticular allografts, osteoarticular allografts are currently stored hypothermically for a minimum of fourteen days to allow for serologic and microbiologic testing prior to implantation. Refrigerated osteoarticular allograft transplants are often used to treat symptomatic chondral and osteochondral defects in […]

A Comparative Analysis of 7.0-Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Histology Measurements of Knee Articular Cartilage in a Canine Posterolateral Knee Injury Model

AJSM 2009

There has recently been increased interest in the use of 7.0-T magnetic resonance imaging for evaluating articular cartilage degeneration and quantifying the progression of osteoarthritis.

Donor-Site Morbidity After Osteochondral Autograft Transfer Procedures

JOURNAL OF ARTHROSCOPIC AND RELATED SURGERY 2004

We report on 2 patients who had donor-site morbidity after an autogenous osteochondral  grafting was performed. Both patients had fibrocartilage hypertrophy at the donor sites that contributed to knee pain and occasional locking; the second patient also had a lack of fibrocartilaginous regrowth with symptomatic residual osteocartilaginous defects. Additional arthroscopic surgery […]
