Blinded MRI analysis demonstrated that BST-CarGel®-treated patients showed a significantly greater treatment effect for lesion filling (P = ) over 5 years. BST-CarGel is an advanced bioscaffold technology for enhancing cartilage regeneration. BST-CarGel was developed to stabilize the blood clot in the cartilage lesion by dispersing a soluble and adhesive polymer scaffold containing chitosan.

Unique to this trial was the new level of evidence brought by the use of validated bbst quantitative MRI, which assessed the structural outcomes of repair tissue quantity and quality over 5 years with a high level of standardization and precision not previously achieved in a Good Clinical Practice—compliant RCT for cartilage repair.

Microfracture to treat full-thickness chondral defects: Only 2 patients had complete data for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years. Furthermore, the trial outcomes reported here at 5 years are likely conservative estimates since 2 negative prognosticators, higher BMIs and larger lesions, were found in the enrolled patients compared with those who did not enroll in the extension study, although neither were found to be significant statistical covariates.

Ultimately, the determination carrgel what factors are predictive of clinical outcome following cartilage repair will be multivariate, considering the numerous patient-specific and cartilage lesion—specific variables.


None of the current repair procedures, which include bone marrow stimulation, cultured cell-based therapies, and grafting, have been studied sufficiently, particularly in the mid to long term yearsto fully understand which factors dictate longer cargfl outcomes for this troublesome pathology.

Thus, with clinical benefit being shown at acceptable levels for most cartilage repair therapies 33346768 and for significantly long follow-up periods, superiority of one therapy or technique falls to the structure of the replaced or cargeo cartilage within the lesion, such as was found in this trial. When it did occur, it was linked to a predisposing factor e.
