How can Arthroscopic Cartilage Regeneration help?
Arthroscopic cartilage regeneration is a minimally invasive technique that helps the cartilage in a specific joint recover and regenerate. It is done with the help of ACI technique, which is the Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation, performed on patients who have articular cartilage defects.
Arthroscopy is the the minimally invasive technique of choice, because it allows the orthopedic surgeon to makethe necessary intervention without causingunnecessary pain or scars.
The ACI technique requires autologous cartilage cell transplant in large defects. In this case, the cartilage cells are harvested from the knee, through arthroscopy and later cultured in the laboratory.
The regenerated cartilage cells are transplanted into the defect part of the joint by another minimally invasive intervention, to apply the treatment and regenerated cells.
