GLOBAL REGENERATIVE CONGRESS 6-8 SEPTEMBER 2019
Articular cartilage lacks vascularity and has low intrinsic healing capacity leading to degeneration and osteoarthritis. Many techniques have been developed for the treatment of cartilage defects to achieve regenerative tissue with histological and mechanical properties similar to those of natural articular cartilage. In the last few decades, the use of marrow stimulation, autogenous or allogenic osteochondral transplantation, autologous chondrocyte implantation, mesenchymal stem cell induced chondrogenesis, and preparation techniques for regenerative autologous products such as platelet-rich plasma, platelet-rich fibrin and adipose- or bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell concentrates have been popularized. Although these techniques may result in good or excellent functional and clinical results, none of them have been shown to be able to completely fill the cartilage defect with natural 100% hyaline cartilage. Thus, further studies and progression are still needed.
Why is the knowledge in this video important? And why attend another event of the Academy?
The Key opinion Leaders of the Academy have a sum of more than 200 years of clinical practice and scientific studies. They have reached a moment of their careers when there is nothing ahead of them but only their potential to create new knowledge.
For the people behind them it is so simple as just to learn from them. The Academy is giving this opportunity to its members – a simple buy and watch process where the beneficiaries are everybody.
Why attend an Academy event? Come and speak with the Academy leaders, learn new protocols, practices, inspiration to do better and more.
Upon completion of the whole panel you will be issued a Certificate of Acknowledgement for completing the online education form of the Global Regenerative Academy.
