Damaged Knees Can Be Repaired with the Help of Nose Cartilage
A new technique of repairing damaged knees is developed by the University of Basel in Switzerland. The damaged knees have been repaired with the help of the cartilage from a patient’s own nose for the first time. This procedure can totally transform arthritis treatment.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the knees of hip wears out, leaving bone rubbing on bone. And the cartilage cannot repair itself as it doesn’t have its own blood supply. Ten patients with severe knee injuries have undergone the new therapy, and nine of them were showing significant improvements in movement and quality of life.
Stephen Simpson, the director of research at Arthritis Research UK, says: “Thee study gives us hope of finding further treatment options for people with osteoarthritis.”
