Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure provides instruments and systems for accessing and removing hyaline cartilage from desired donor sites. The present disclosure also provides instruments/systems for implantation of hyaline cartilage grafts, e.g., to fill osteochondral defects. The apparatus/systems may be used in connection with mapping techniques and systems. Thus, in exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure, a clinician may be guided in his use of the disclosed apparatus/systems by articular joint surface mapping data in locating/identifying harvest sites for "best fit" grafts, i.e., grafts that exhibit desired geometric and/or surface attributes for use in particular implantation site(s). Alternatively, the disclosed instruments/systems may be employed to access anatomical sites independent of such mapping techniques/systems.

La présente invention porte sur des instruments et des systèmes pour accéder à du cartilage hyalin et retirer ce dernier se trouvant dans des sites donneurs désirés. La présente invention porte également sur des systèmes/instruments pour l'implantation de greffes de cartilage hyalin, par exemple, pour remplir des défauts ostéochondraux. L'appareil/système peuvent être utilisés conjointement avec des techniques et des systèmes de cartographie. Ainsi, dans des modes de réalisation donnés à titre d'exemple de la présente invention, un clinicien peut être guidé dans son utilisation des appareils/systèmes décrits par des données de cartographie de la surface articulaire pour localiser/identifier des sites de collecte pour assurer les « meilleures » greffes, à savoir des greffes qui présentent des attributs géométriques et/ou de surface désirés pour une utilisation dans un ou plusieurs sites d'implantation particuliers. En variante, les instruments/systèmes décrits peuvent être employés pour accéder à des sites anatomiques indépendamment de ces techniques/systèmes de cartographie.
