Foot & Ankle International—April 2, 2018
Foot & Ankle International interviewed HSS foot and ankle surgeon Mark C. Drakos, MD, on-air to discuss his recent study, Comparison of Juvenile Allogenous Articular Cartilage and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Versus Microfracture With and Without Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate in Arthroscopic Treatment of Talar Osteochondral Lesions.
"The purpose of this article to evaluate arthroscopic techniques for treating talar osteochondral lesions. The current standard of care in the country is still microfracture, and there are ample amounts of data that show it may not be the best intervention for the long-term health of the cartilage," said Dr. Drakos.
Dr. Drakos and his team found that the size difference of the microfractures in the separate study groups had no impact on outcomes.
