Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation in the hip: case report and technique.
He reported on 42 patients with osteochondritis dissecans who underwent autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) after failing a mean of 3.
Protocols for rehabilitation following autologous chondrocyte implantation vary considerably in the orthopaedic literature.
Autologous chondrocyte implantation has been shown to be a good option for the management of both medium sized and large chondral defects.
Technical issues that are specific to autologous chondrocyte implantation in the patellofemoral joint include a suture technique that restores the articular surface shape of the patella and the trochlea, as well as a soft-tissue tensioning at the end of the procedure that allows the normal medial-to-lateral and proximal-to-distal patellar glide without overstuffing the patellofemoral joint.
When autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is being considered for the repair of a cartilage defect, it is critical that the etiology and the underlying cause or abnormal pathomechanics of the defect are accurately identified.
