Every year, more than 50 million people worldwide are affected by joint pain, half of them have articular cartilage damage. A topic in which everyone will be increasingly interested in the near future.
Cartilage Regeneration - Joint preservation
Today, the focus on articular cartilage regeneration and joint preservation is based on state-of-the-art growth factors, scaffolds and biological matrices, cells and other joint maintenance techniques for traumatic defects and degenerative osteoarthritis. There are several types
of improved techniques and modern treatments for cartilage repair and regeneration. New techniques and concepts are developed and designed not only to treat damaged or diseased joint cartilage by filling the defect with biological repair tissue, but also to receive processes of achieving regeneration to normal cartilage that gains long-lasting improvements and return to a fully active lifestyle.
Continuous efforts to develop a cartilage repair treatment based on a single-step, cell-free technique led to invention of
Advantages of this technique
ChondroFiller liquid is a dual chamber syringe made for the application of liquid collagen for defect sizes < 3 cm2.
The implantation can be done during an arthroscopy. About 3-5 minutes after the injection into the defect zone a dimensionally stable gel forms itself. Even hard to reach lesions, fissures and pores can be filled up by ChondroFiller liquid.
Just one procedure
Acellular; no 2nd procedure attaining a biopsy
Implantation during an arthroscopy
Liquid application of collagen
Good adaption to the defect zone
No fibrin glue
Short surgery time
No need for microfracture
What is ChondroFiller Liquid?
ChondroFiller liquid is the only patented injectable 3-dimensional chondro-conductive collagen matrix in a two chamber-syringe ready to use. The CE marked implant is a medical device class III, produced under GMP conditions.
Cartilage repair and regeneration is recommended for joints that have damaged cartilage but are otherwise healthy. The ChondroFiller liquid technique is suitable for patients with cartilage damage or deterioration caused by trauma or injury, including sports injuries, repetitive strong stress of the joint, degenerative cartilage development like osteoarthritis and os-teochondritis
