“Repairing a chondral defect with VCA [CartiMax®] is a simple, single‐stage procedure providing a cartilage matrix and viable endogenous chondrocytes while recreating articular contour. If a known or unsuspected lesion is encountered, there is no need to harvest autologous chondrocytes or violate the subchondral bone plate - lessening morbidity, fibrocartilaginous in-growth, or the need for an additional procedure.”
