Study assesses new surgical procedure for regenerating cartilage in damaged knee joints
Date:4/9/2009

>"Microfracture promotes the growth of fibrocartilage, a weaker form of cartilage," Cole said. "It lacks the composition, structure, and functionality of articular cartilage, the type of tissue normally found in the knee joint. Fibrocartilage is unable to endure repetitive forces, and so it may eventually break down, even under normal use, requiring further surgical intervention."

The CAIS procedure could potentially eliminate these problems.

"The aim is to produce new articular cartilage that more closely mimics the original tissue, providing the nearly frictionless surface required for movement and high wear resistance," Cole said.

Cole has numerous years of experience in tissue repair and heads the Cartilage Restoration Center at Rush, a multidisciplinary program specializing in the repair and regeneration of articular and meniscal cartilage. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed studies on the subject and teaches the surgical techniques to physicians in the U.S. and abroad.
