VALUE OF MICROFRACTURE IN
CARTILAGE LESIONS, III AND IV DEGREE
INTRODUCTION. The cartilage
lesions are after the capsule- ligamentary and
meniscal lesions one of the most common and often meet knee injuries.
If for the first two injuries the surgical treatment offers many
possibilities , for the cartilage lesions
didn’t exist until soon a
satisfactory treatment. The experience of our collective points out a
75 % healing percentage of the grade III and IV condral lesions after
the surgical microfracture treatment , followed by a viscous- elastic
MATERIAL AND METHODS.
In our clinic were treated in this manner 40 patients , 32
men and 8 women with good results. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION.
After a follow up over a 6 month period 30 people had very good results
-75%. In 6 cases in which after a period of 2-3 month a
ligamentoplasty was performed we had the
opportunity of a second look which showed the former good
results. This reason is why we are optimistic
especially because we have the global statistic which also shows a
percentage of 70-80 % positive results.
