14 patients with isolated single full-thickness femoral condylar chondral defects of the knee (>2 cm-squared in area) qualifying for cartilage repair surgery were randomized to receive either matrix-induced autologous mesenchymal stem cell implantation (m-AMI), or matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (m-ACI). The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the objective and sub...
