Özet

Arthroscopic techniques have recently gained popularity for the treatment of osteochondral defects of the talus. The microfracture procedure is the most commonly applied arthroscopic technique. However, it is not effective for the treatment of larger lesions. Tissue-engineered scaffolds have been used for cartilage regeneration arthroscopically, and promising results have been reported. Wetreated larger osteochondral lesions of the talus with polyglycolic acid-hyaluronan scaffold biomaterial (Chondrotissue, BioTissue AG, Zurich, Switzerland) in a single-step arthroscopic surgery. Traction methods and fibrin glue were avoided.
