Dr. Biant discusses the long term outcomes of autologous chondrocyte implantation at 10 years.
100 patients with articular cartilage defects of the knee were randomized to treatment with autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) or mosaicplasty to compare survival rates and functional results over a long-term. At a minimum of 10 year follow-up, the ACI group had significantly greater survival rates and better scores on the modified Cincinnati test.
