CarboJet Effective at Removing Immunogenic Marrow Elements from Osteochondral Allografts
October 7, 2016
Naples, Italy (September 2016) – A new study looking at the effects of different bone cleaning techniques on the removal of immunogenic marrow elements from osteochondral allografts was presented at the 13th World Congress of the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) by Brian Cole, MD, MBA, and Adam Yanke MD of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. The study compared three treatment arms: A; no lavage, B, saline lavage only; C saline lavage with CarboJet. The results showed that the third arm was significantly more effective at removing marrow debris from osteochondral allografts than saline lavage alone, especially in the deepest portion of the allograft plug.
