Abstract

N-Carboxybutyl chitosan obtained from crustacean chitin was used to assist the spontaneous tissue repair of the meniscus, which is usually of extreme difficulty. Results indicate that this natural modified polysaccharide is well-tolerated at the articular synovial level. It also favors and stimulates the repair processes which do not take place spontaneously in the meniscus. N-Carboxybutyl chitosan, therefore, plays a role which helps in repairing meniscal lesions.
