Microfragmented adipose tissue transplantation (MATT) is a cartilage repair technique.

 

Technique of MATT

In this technique fat is harvested from the abdomen or thigh and mechanically fragmented to release the pericyte cells that normally cling to the tiny blood vessels. These then facilitate healing of damaged cartilage surfaces.
