Blinded MRI analysis demonstrated that BST-CarGel®-treated patients showed a significantly greater treatment effect for lesion filling (P = ) over 5 years. BST-CarGel is an advanced bioscaffold technology for enhancing cartilage regeneration. BST-CarGel was developed to stabilize the blood clot in the cartilage lesion by dispersing a soluble and adhesive polymer scaffold containing chitosan.

The adverse effect of elevated body mass index on outcome after autologous chondrocyte implantation. Limitations and sources of bias in clinical knee cartilage research. Five-year outcome of characterized chondrocyte implantation versus microfracture for symptomatic cartilage defects of the knee: Baseline demographic characteristics of the 80 patients were similar in the two treatment groups, including age, race, gender, BMI, smoking habits, and activity levels.

Customized high—spatial resolution pulse sequences specific for morphological or T2 relaxation time analyses of regions of interest were used.

Check availability of results on the Clinicaltrials. Longitudinal analysis of repeated measures using general estimating equations GEE for the quantity and quality of repair cartilage over 5 years posttreatment. Thus, with clinical benefit being shown at acceptable levels for most cartilage repair therapies 33346768 and for significantly long follow-up periods, superiority of one therapy or technique falls to the structure of the replaced or regenerated cartilage within the lesion, such as was found in this trial.

Several studies have reported relationships between structural assessments and cadgel clinical outcomes, but these studies suffer from small sample sizes, statistical rigor, and subjective scoring of both the structural and the clinical components. J Bone Joint Surg Am. Furthermore, the trial outcomes reported here at acrgel years are likely conservative estimates since 2 negative prognosticators, higher BMIs and larger lesions, were found in the enrolled patients compared with those who did not enroll in the extension study, although neither were found to be significant statistical covariates.

Structural characteristics of the collagen network in human normal, degraded and repair articular cartilages observed in polarized light and scanning electron microscopies. The response of articular cartilage to mechanical injury.

Is microfracture of chondral defects in the knee associated with different results in patients aged 40 years or younger?

The extension study suffered patient loss to follow-up at all planned time points due to several factors, including extremely protracted enrolment periods for both the initial 12 month trial and the extension study, compounded by financial bankruptcy of the original trial sponsor BioSyntech Canada Inc.
