Authors' objectives:

Autologous chondrocyte transplantation (ACT) utilizes a patient's own cartilage cells to repair damage to articular cartilage, with the goal of improving joint function and reducing pain. The procedure involves the collection and ex vivo culture of articular cartilage cells, which are then implanted into the cartilage defect with the intent that these cultured cells will contribute to regeneration and repair of the articular surface.
