Title (EN) CARTILAGE ALLOGRAFT PLUG
(FR) BOUCHON D'ALLOGREFFE CARTILAGINEUSE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention is directed toward a cartilage repair assembly comprising a shaped allograft structure of subchondral bone (20) with an integral overlying cartilage cap (24) which is treated to remove cellular debris and proteoglycans and milled allograft cartilage in a bioabsorbable carrier. The shaped structure is dimensioned to fit in a drilled bore in a cartilage defect area so that either the shaped bone or the cartilage cap (24) engage the side wall of the drilled bore in an interference fit and is in contact with a milled cartilage and biocompatible carrier mixture allowing cell transfer throughout the defect area. A method for inserting the shaped allograft structure into a cartilage defect area is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble de réparation du cartilage comprenant une structure d'allogreffe façonnée d'os sous-chondral (20) à chape cartilagineuse intégrée (24) traitée pour enlever les débris cellulaire et les protéoglycanes, et un cartilage d'allogreffe fraisé, dans un support bioabsorbable. La structure façonnée est dimensionnée de manière qu'elle s'adapte dans l'orifice percé dans une zone de défaut cartilagineux, et, que soit l'os façonné, soit la chape cartilagineuse (24) vienne en contact par montage en force, avec la paroi latérale de l'orifice percé, et soit en contact avec un mélange de cartilage fraisé et de support biocompatible, ce qui permet le transfert de cellules dans ladite zone de défaut. Un procédé d'insertion de la structure d'allogreffe façonnée dans une zone de défaut cartilagineux est également décrit.
