Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation - Preparation of Osteochondral Defect

November 01, 2015

Contributors: Andreas H Gomoll, MD

This video demonstrates preparation of a cartilage defect on the medial femoral condyle. The defect is outlined with a fresh 15 blade. All degenerative tissue is debrided to create healthy shoulders of stable cartilage. The degenerative tissue is removed with a ring curette. Once all the degenerative tissue has been removed, the layer of calcified cartilage is gently debrided with a ring curette. Excessive force should be avoided; this could injure the subchondral plate, could lead to excessive bleeding, and increases the risk for intralesional osteophytes.
