Arthroscopic Treatment of Patellofemoral Cartilage Defects with BioCartilage®

William Beach, MD, and Chad Lavender, MD, (Richmond, VA) demonstrate the arthroscopic treatment of a patellar and trochlear cartilage defect using BioCartilage. BioCartilage was designed to provide a reproducible, simple and inexpensive method to augment traditional microfracture procedures. 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.
