  • Meniscus Tears and Lead to Cartilage Injuries

  • Arthroscopic Partial Menisectomy
    Alvernia Mt Elizabeth Novena Enquiry Links Contact Us Arthroscopic Partial Menisectomy What is the Meniscus The menisci are two pads of cartilaginous tissue which serve to disperse friction in the knee joint between the lower leg tibia and the thigh femur The knee contains a lateral meniscus and a medial meniscus Both are cartilaginous tissues that provide structural integrity to the knee when it undergoes tension and torsion What Does It Do Shock Absorption The menisci act to disperse the weight of the body and reduce friction during movement Since the ends of the thigh bone and shin bone meet at one point which changes during flexion and extension the menisci spread the load of the body s weight This protects the integrity of the articular cartilage of the knee joint Meniscus Tears Torn or worn away from overuse age or injury Common in sports such as soccer basketball Commonly related to anterior cruciate ligament injuries of the knee The knee will be in pain when in use But when there is no load the pain goes away Some meniscal tears can cause jamming or locking of the knee Treatment Observation physiotherapy Arthroscopic menisectomy Partial or total Arthroscopic meniscus repair

  • Cartilage Repair - Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (3D Matrix)
    is a 3D mechanically stable transplant based on patient specific autologous cartilage cells and a unique collagen matrix CaReS Cartilage Repair This treatment requires 2 staged surgeries to the knee joint 1st surgery involves an arthroscopic examination of the knee with harvesting of the patient s knee joint cartilage equivalent to 3 grains of rice The cartilage biopsy is sent off to a laboratory overseas and seeded into a platform which becomes ready for use within 11 to 15 days 2nd surgery involves implantation of the new grown cartilage into the patient s knee cartilage defect Grow New Cartilage The cartilage implant can be manufactured in various thicknesses and sizes to meet the individual patient and defect requirements The implant has a solid form and is bio mechanically stable which simplifies implantation allows for minimally invasive surgical application and promises early weight bearing and reduced rehabilitation time The results of a comparison study 2002 2004 between conventional ACT procedures and CaReS show that this transplant indeed promises significant reduction in OR time and significantly shorter rehabilitation Summary A technique to restore cartilage in the knee joint Usually for patients between 20 to 50 years old Resolves pain and swelling in

    knee It is a common procedure used to treat patients with full thickness damage to the articular cartilage that goes all the way down to the bone This arthroscopic procedure was first introduced about 20 years ago by Dr Richard Steadman as a treatment method that uses the body s own healing abilities and provides an enriched environment for tissue regeneration on the chondral surface Results of Microfracture Since its
