Abstract

The increasing awareness on the role of subchondral
bone in the etiopathology of articular surface lesions
led to the development of osteochondral scafolds. While
safety and promising results have been suggested, there
are no trials proving the real potential of the osteochondral
regenerative approach. Aim was to assess the beneft provided
by a nanostructured collagen–hydroxyapatite (collHA)
multilayer scafold for the treatment of chondral and
osteochondral knee lesions.
