Possible New Knee Cartilage

Comments Off

I read a very encouraging article concerning the implantation of bioengineered cartilage in damaged knee joints. The authors of the study conclude:

“We have shown for the first time that tissue-engineered cartilage implanted into knees can mature into an articular cartilage structure as early as 11 months after implantation of Hyalograft C,” the authors conclude. “Development of osteoarthrosis, far from inhibiting articular cartilage formation, appeared to enhance the maturation process.”

For years doctors have talked about a better way to treat those arthritic knees and reading about studies, such as the one referenced here, is very encouraging for all those clients who have had that knee injury that will inevitably lead to osteoarthritis.
