GLOBAL REGENERATIVE CONGRESS 6-8 SEPTEMBER 2019
Full thickness patellar cartilage lesions are seen in two main groups of patients. Chondral/osteochondral lesions of the central ridge and medial facet are seen in up to 70% of the patients with patellar instability (Salonen EE, 2017). These patients present in the second and third decades of life after an acute episode or with chronic chondral lesions after repeated dislocations. Mosaicplasty may be more durable in these younger patients. The second group are middle aged patients with focal cartilage lesions mostly on the lateral facet due to patellar lateral hyperpression. These patients benefit from anteromedialization of the tibial tubercule in addition to cartilage repair techniques. MACI or single stage AMIC with BMAC may be more suitable in this age group.
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.
