Effects of calcified cartilage on healing of chondral
defects treated with microfracture in horses.
Some studies have shown that if platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is applied in chondral
lesions, signs of healing will be observed.
To our knowledge this is the only other case that has been reported of an irreducible patella in a young patient in which a chondral
defect became the block to reduction.
During arthroscopy there appeared a large just recently separated pure chondral
fragment at the dorsomedial femoral condyle with healthy appearing surrounding and opposing cartilage (Figure 2).
Moreover, measuring medial and lateral condylar motions individually rather than studying femoral motion as a whole might contribute to clarifying the mechanism of chondral
lesions in medial and lateral compartments after ACL injury.
CMF is characterized by chondral
, myxoid, and fibrous differentiation.
He reviewed pre- and post-accident MRIs of her left knee, finding no evidence of trauma, only "normal wear and tear" and chondral
calcinosis--also known as "pseudo gout"--which is not caused by trauma.
In the rhBMP-2 group, interspreading small chondral
islets were seen.
Oxygen radicals and nitric oxide levels in chondral
or meniscal lesions or both.
During my clinical practice I use mosaicplasty, microfracture, periosteal transplantation and, in rare situations, chondrocyte transplantation to treat focal chondral
defects," said Hangody.
In the STIR sequence, MRI demonstrated that chondral
bodies surround the first web space and second flexor tendon, (Fig.
Frisbie DD, Trotter GW, Powers BE, et al: Arthroscopic subchondral bone plate microfracture technique augments healing of large chondral
defects in the radial carpal bone and medial femoral condyle of horses.
