Cartilage Repair


Arthrex offers several different cartilage repair treatment options that treat a variety of cartilage indications.  For indications that require a microfracturing type technique, traditional microfracture awls are available as well as newer options like the Arthrex PowerPick, which allows for microdrilling up to 4 mm deep into the subchondral bone.  The PowerPick comes in 30 and 45 degree angles.  

The bioabsorbable PLLA Chondral Dart has a unique, double reversed barbed design to facilitate superior fixation and compression of osteochondral flap tears up to 2 cm in diameter. The 18 mm long, 1.3 mm diameter Chondral Dart provides secure fixation under the hyaline cartilage surface to eliminate contact with sensitive articulating surfaces.  

For larger lesions, the Bio-Compression Screw may be used to fixate OCD lesions securely while eliminating the challenges of metal screw removal, soft tissue impingement, and unwelcome image scatter. Produced from solid enhanced PLLA and designed for excellent thread-to-bone contact, the Bio-Compression Screw provides excellent strength during insertion and through healing.
