You're Not Alone. Visitor Policies: Visitation is still limited in locations and care areas. Tested Concept, (OBQ11.1) The transplanted chondrocytes are nonviable and cartilage is used as a scaffold for growth of new articular cartilage. However, in the group with smaller lesions (< 4 cm These next few months will definitely be an adventure & one that I’m sure I will never want to do again. Ideal candidates for these procedures are typically less than 50 years of age with some cartilage damage, but still have healthy tissue remaining.
OATS - MOSAICPLASTY. Yes, they can use your own cartilage that is called an Osteochondral autograft transplant surgery (OATS), but it can only be used for smaller lesions.
This will result in pain relief and for the damaged tissue to heal. Many believe that when it comes to joint pain you have only one solution: joint replacement. (OBQ13.152)
My doctor decided to do MACI on patella and trochlea because he said it is difficult to get the right contour with the articulating surfaces especially since mine was bipolar or “kissing” lesions. I’m still hoping the surgery will be a success, but I will be heartbroken if I go through all of this and still need another surgery. Although, the administrative assistant told me it will be ANOTHER 3 months from now, & I’m not having that so I’ll be calling the insurance company to get thing prior authed. Introduction: Spectrum of disease entities from single, focal defects to advanced degenerative disease of articular (hyaline) cartilage; Epidemiology. Grrrrr . The third part my surgery is called a TTO. Hip arthroscopy is a less invasive method to address orthopedic problems that occur inside the hip joint, such as a torn labrum, damaged cartilage, or excessive bone growth. OATS is one technique of several used to treat this problem; the type of procedure is called a mosaicplasty. He is to use for at least 2 hours a day for 200 flexion, extension cycles, whichever comes first. I have a very specific rehab protocol that won’t allow me to ride a bike until 10 weeks post-op. The MACI was/is my best chance of having a full recovery to be as painfree as possible, so it was the best first choice surgery.
I thought I would give a more detailed description of what my next knee surgery will be. That was the size of my trochlea defect which is slightly larger than a quarter. It’s going to be about a 9-12 month recovery.
The literature search was performed using the terms: ``mosaicplasty'' or ``osteochondral transplantation'' or ``OATS'' and ``autologous chondrocyte implantation'' or ``autologous chondrocyte transplantation'' or ``ACI'' or ``matrix-associated autologous chondrocyte implantation'' or``MACI'' and ``combination''. Which of the following statement is true with respect to Technique B and C? That’s when I will have the second surgery. https://www.facebook.com/groups/130981344407971/?ref=share.
(OBQ13.203) Sites are re-opening to serve patients with respiratory vs. non-respiratory symptoms; see location/service updates. Thank you for sharing your journey. In Technique B, healing is initiated by allogeneic chondrocytes reimplanted beneath a periosteal patch. With the patella not being very thick, and the shape of the patella, it makes it more difficult to get the transplant graft in there and getting a nice smooth surface with no clefts or divots.
Biopsy shows type II collagen. Tested Concept. My MACI graft has not completely filled in or hardened yet.
Let's Cope with Bullying Together. Tested Concept. The Facebook group is called MACI support group. My three areas of damage (circled in red above) are: 2.5 cm x 2.2 cm defect on the lateral femoral trochlea (slightly larger than the size of a quarter), 2 cm x 2 cm on the medial femoral condyle (slightly smaller than the size of a quarter), and 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm defect on my patella (knee cap).
Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. anterior aspect of lateral femoral chondyle and posterolateral tibial plateau Which of the following statements best describes the incorporation of the graft and biopsy results of the graft at one year? Was the MACI successful in developing into strong solid cartilage?
OATS: OATS stands for 'osteochondral autograft transfer system,' and the technique is very similar to mosaicplasty. MACI was superior to microfracture (KOOS response rates 97% vs. 77%), while a positive trend was seen for the individual components of the co- primary efficacy parameter for both pain and function. What surgical treatment would you recommend? Of note, he is to be TOUCHDOWN WEIGHTBEARING for the next 6 weeks. The autograft transplant might be an option depending on your surgeon. Unfortunately, my lesions were too large to have that option. Because my defects are on my patella and trochlea, I will be limited in how far I can bend my knee. My doctor told me we will re-evaluate things at the 12 month mark.
chronic ACL tear. Biopsy shows mixture of type I and II collagen. The OATS procedure, or Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System, is often referred to as a mosaicplasty. - Moderator: Christopher D.
