Cartilage is the cushion in the knee which acts as a shock absorber and lubricant permitting the painless movement that we take for granted. Loss of cartilage either as a result of injury or other factors presents with a challenge specially in young and active persons. The cartilage has no blood supply, therefore it has poor healing capacity.
Microfracture is a technique where localized (focal) defects of the articular cartilage are cleared and debrided, followed by creation of microfracture holes in the bone denuded of its cartilage cap. This creates a clot which sticks to the bare area and gradually forms fibrocartilage covering and relieves the pain.
Able to follow the post-operative regimen is critical for success of the procedure. It is important to start knee movements immediately in the post- operative period. Patient is also advised to walk with aid of a walker without putting weight on the affected limb. It may take about two to the months for the relief to be apparent.
