Do you mean the tru fit plugs?  A few on here have had them, some failed.  Do a search for posts - I think a KG called mrpenguin had them?  Failed and then he had a meniscus transplant and MACI, not been on lately I think.  Could be someone else though!

Some info here -= a synthetic type of OATs / mosaicplasty for isolated defects  I think http://www.kneespecialists.co.uk/procedures/cartilage-repair/

These repairs aren't usually indicated if there is a lot of damage, not a long term alternative to replacement parts

Did you mean to link to something in your first post?  It doesn't seem clear what you are referring to (hence maybe the lack of response)
