Abstract

A biodegradable, hyaluronan-based biocompatible scaffold was used for autologous chondrocyte transplantation using an arthroscopic technique. All patients were prospectively evaluated according to the International Repair Cartilage Society score. This study analyzed the clinical outcome of patients treated by arthroscopic technique during a 24-month follow-up period. No complications related to the implant and no serious adverse events were observed during the treatment and follow-up period. Statistically significant improvement of IKDC objective and subjective scores was observed just at 12 months. There was no statistically significant difference between clinical results after 12 and 24 months. This matrix autologous chondrocyte transplantation technique simplifies the surgical procedure and permits arthroscopic implantation, thus reducing the surgical morbidity and the recovery time for the patient.
