AJSM January 2016 Podcast: Small-Diameter Awls Improve Articular Cartilage Repair After Microfracture Treatment in a Translational Animal Model
Microfracture is the most commonly applied arthroscopic marrow stimulation procedure. This controlled laboratory study found that small-diameter microfracture awls improve articular cartilage repair in the translational sheep model more effectively than do larger awls. These data support the use of small microfracture instruments for the surgical treatment of cartilage defects and warrant prolonged clinical investigations.
