Which joint problems does cartilage transplantation help with?
Cartilage transplantation is used for locally limited cartilage damage, often after an accident. If there is already a pronounced osteoarthritis with inflammation, formation of bone spurs and large-scale cartilage loss in the joint, the formation of biological replacement cartilage is no longer promising. Then, depending on the extent of the damage and arthritis development, a partial or full denture is recommended.
Prerequisite for a successful cartilage transplantation is a vital cartilage environment in the knee around the damaged area. The patients of a cartilage transplantation are therefore rather younger, than with the operation of a knee prosthesis.
There is no fixed age limit for cartilage transplantation, as the biological age decides. Cartilage transplantation can repair cartilage damage without disadvantages or side effects. It is important that the treated joint does not show any marked arthrosis and that the menisci, ligaments and bones are largely intact.
In the long term, autologous cartilage transplantation is therapeutically superior to microfracturing because it replicates true articular cartilage with cartilage cells. The body's own cartilage is reproduced in the laboratory and implanted at the site of the defect approximately six to eight weeks later. After three months of relief with forearm crutches, these cartilage cells again form true articular cartilage.
After a few years, the results of cartilage transplantation are significantly better than after microfracturing. The only drawback of cartilage transplantation is that it requires two operations at intervals of six to eight weeks, removal and implantation, as well as longer rehabilitation with relief of the joint.
