Knorpelreparative Eingriffe am Schultergelenk


Bouaicha, S (2017). Knorpelreparative Eingriffe am Schultergelenk. Der Orthopäde, 46(11):914-918.

Abstract

Asymptomatic cartilage lesions of the shoulder are frequent. Symptomatic lesions are treated analogously to other hyaline cartilage bearing joints and can be treated arthroscopically in the vast majority of cases. The therapeutic options can be subdivided into resection, stimulation and transplantation of the defect cartilage. There are only a few reports about outcome after cartilage restoration surgery in the literature, and microfracturing is the surgical technique that has been most investigated.
