Chondro-Gide®

Bilayer Collagen Matrix

Chondro-Gide is the leading natural collagen matrix in cartilage regeneration. This easy to handle matrix can be used to treat cartilage defects with various surgical methods. Chondro-Gide consists of natural collagen. The unique bilayer structure of the matrix is manufactured in a patented process.


Surgical Techniques using Chondro-Gide

  • AMIC® (Autologous Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis) - AMIC is a single step, cost efficient and effective technique for treating traumatic cartilage defects. Chondro-Gide offers a protective environment for cell differentiation and the formation of new cartilage.

  • ACI (Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation) - Chondro-Gide provides an ideal 3D supportive matrix for adherence of autologous cultured chondrocytes and encourages their proliferation.

A randomized controlled trial by Volz et al demonstrated sustained benefit of Autologous Matrix-Induced Chondrogenesis over microfracture at five years.

 

The two videos below show the main ways to perform AMIC in the knee.
