Cartilage Treatment Options Update

Patrick Smith, MD, (Columbia, MO) gives an in-depth review of various technique options when treating cartilage defects. Dr. Smith explains the benefits of using the PowerPick™ to perform marrow stimulation, reviews some case examples utilizing the Arthrex® Bio-Compression Screws and Chondral Dart™, highlights research associated with the OATS® procedures, and details the potential of BioCartilage® Cartilage Extracellular Matrix.  The principle of BioCartilage is to serve as a scaffold over a microfractured defect, providing a tissue network that can potentially signal autologous cellular interactions and improve the degree and quality of tissue healing within a properly prepared articular cartilage defect.
