Chondro-Gide® consists of natural collagen. The unique bilayer structure of the matrix is manufactured in a patented process.
Surgical Techniques using Chondro-Gide
AMIC® (Autologous Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis) AMIC® is a single step, cost efficient and effective technique for treating traumatic cartilage defects. Chondro-Gide® offers a protective environment for cell differentiation and the formation of new cartilage.
AMIC can be applied to any region of the body were a cartilage lesion is causing pain and the preferred approach is a reparaitve technique. The Geistlich Proceedings brochure from ICRS 2017 gives an excellent overview of the technique across Hip, Knee and Ankle – Click here
Although usually performed via a mini arthrotomy, arthroscopic placement of the chondrogide is possible. Below are three different examples of this.
