Cartilage is a smooth elastic muscle, which covers the ends of the bone and serves as a bearing surface of the joint. Articular cartilage is produced by chondrocytes. Chondrocytes are the cells that divide and multiply very slowly as they do not have blood vessels. This is one of the reasons articular cartilage injuries do not repair well and can lead to continued degradation and deterioration of joint condition, leaving few treatment options available for the patients. The treatment of articular cartilage has evolved tremendously in the past decade. Reparative and restorative methods have been developed to address the significant source of morbidity in the young and active patients. Articular cartilage injury can be focal, which is localized or systemic. Procedures are being developed not only to alleviate the symptoms associated with articular cartilage defects but also to limit the progression of cartilage damages into degenerative diseases.
