Abstract

The treatment of patellofemoral articular cartilage lesions remains challenging. Aside from their inherent limited capacity to heal and their articular location, the complexity of the patellofemoral joint proves to be refractory to treatment [30], even though recent research has reported different treatments that give satisfactory results [8,11,12,21,26].
