Even a sub-set of microfracture patients (equivalent to Saw&#39;s subchondral drilling) can lead to hyaline cartialge creation. I think it&#39;s about 18%. For ACI&#39;s, the result is more significant about 50%. Articular cartilage paste graft is again about 50%. Heck, some cartilage lesions sponteounsly heal--this isn&#39;t known well. A study done in Australia, it&#39;s cited by Savin My Knees author Richard Bedard, found 1/3 of lesions heal while 1/3 get worse and 1/3 stay the same. I wonder how that would compare to microfracture done honestly...<br /><br />Anyways, cool post. Go stem cells!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
