Viable Cartilage Allograft

Reshaping the Future of Cartilage Repair

Viable Chondrocytes

  • Provides functioning, viable chondrocytes and chondrogenic growth factors1
  • Studies demonstrate that chondrocytes migrate and proliferate from the cartilage fibers and secrete components found in hyaline cartilage2,3,4 

Optimal Handling Properties

  • Putty-like construct easily conforms to a variety of defect shapes and sizes
  • No shaping, trimming, suturing, or gluing required

Off-the-Shelf Solution

  • Offering a ready-to-go solution that demonstrates stable viability up to 2 years post-cryopreservation1
  • One package contains enough cartilage matrix to fill a 5cm2 lesion

What CartiMax® Users are Saying

“When you’re talking about other options for cartilage restoration, they often include having to order something and bring it in, or do a second-stage procedure to finalize the treatment. But with CartiMax® it’s a win-win for everybody in a sense that it’s off the shelf and it’s a single stage operation…I think that makes the patients happy because there’s a lot of predictability with the process.”

Dr. W. Stephen Choate

“I’ve been very impressed with how quickly people return to function after CartiMax®. I’ve seen high level athletes get back to full sports such as football at six months. I’ve seen weekend warrior athletes playing tennis at a high level six to nine months after using CartiMax®, and I’ve been very impressed with the overall patient outcomes.”
