autologous collagen-induced chondrogenesis?
« on: January 01, 2019, 07:46:59 PM »
Is it a new technique or is it simply a new name for Autologous Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis (AMIC)?

Selvan and his team performed a procedure known as autologous collagen-induced chondrogenesis (ACIC). A year ago, they took stem cells from Mehta’s pelvic region and mixed them with a specially developed collagen gel to make a paste. They drilled a hole in her knee and injected the paste. It holds the stem cells against the bone to grow new cartilage. The procedure took 90 minutes and Mehta spent just one night in hospital.

Is it really known? How does it compare with what Dr Saw does?
