Cartilage regeneration revisited: entering of new one-step procedures for chondral cartilage repair

This article reviews the evolution of cartilage regeneration therapeutic approaches from two-step cell-based autologous chondrocyte implantation procedures to current one-step cell-free scaffold-assisted cartilage repair approaches for chondral cartilage repair. In particular, our research is focused on clinical data about commercially available cell-free implants used in regenerative medicine approaches for the treatment of chondral cartilage defects.
