ProChondrix® Showing Positive Early Clinical Results – 12 Month Prospective Case Series1
A group of 10 patients underwent treatment for an isolated, symptomatic articular cartilage surface lesion. Data collection was performed pre-operatively as well as at 6 and 12 months post-operatively.1
At a mean follow up of 12 months (3-15 months), a statistically significant increase was seen in KOOS Symptoms (+15.97, p=.06), KOOS Function-Daily Living (+28.5, p=.02), KOOS Function-Sports and Recreational Activities (+42.38, p=.004), KOOS Pain (+31.49, p=.0006) and KOOS QOL (+43.51, p=.00008). A statistically significant improvement from baseline was also seen in SF-36 Physical Functioning (+34, p=.05) and SF-36 Bodily Pain (+48.87, p=.009). VAS decreased from 68 to 18.9 (p=.0002). Subjective IKDC scores increased from 35.76 to 56.16 (p=.04). No early failures or re-operations were recorded.1
