  • Patent number: 10729549
    Abstract: Techniques, mixtures, mixing and delivery kits, and improved delivery instruments for implantation of micronized allograft tissue over a microfractured defect. Allograft cartilage tissue is delivered over a cartilage defect that has been debrided and microfractured, without the need for a periosteal covering or separate type of patch sewn over the top. The allograft tissue may be any micronized cartilage particulates obtained by various methods, for example, cartilage delivered in its native form, dehydrated via lyophilization, “freeze-dried,” dehydrated via desiccation, or dehydrated by any other method.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20170224764
    Abstract: The present technology provides methods of preventing or treating osteoarthritis (OA) and/or post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). In some embodiments, the methods provide administering aromatic-cationic peptides in effective amounts to treat or prevent cartilage degeneration and/or chondrocyte death such as that found in a subject suffering from, or predisposed to OA or PTOA. In some embodiments, the methods comprise administering to a subject suffering from, or at risk for OA or PTOA, an effective amount of an aromatic-cationic peptide to subjects in need thereof.
