Abstract. We proposed in vivo checking of the possibility to use
collagenic scaffolds loaded with condroblastes for articular condral
defects repair on dogs. Evaluation of the healing process was made at 110
days by arthroscopic by joint clinical exam. Used scaffolds have the
capacity to mimic natural extracellular cartilage matrix. The quality of
postimplanted resulted cartilage is, in the same time, correlated with
lack of postimplantation osteolysis process and mild intra-articular
synovial reactions. The macroscopically aspects are one of a hyaline
cartilage. Based on obtained data at 110 control days, we consider that
another way of fixation should be considered.
