The overall goal of this 3-year project is to improve the outcome of a “marrow stimulation” procedure for cartilage repair (viz., “microfracture”) through the use of: 1) extracorporeal shock wave (ESW) treatment to enhance marrow stimulation; and 2) an injectable hyaluronic acid-gelatin (HA-Gtn) matrix to initially contain the fibrin clot and cells infiltrating the defect from the stimulated subchondral bone marrow. This proposal is based on the prior findings in which ESWs have been found to su...
