2-18) Most of these techniques are supported by experimental data, but only autologous chondrocyte transplantation
and autologous osteochondral transplantation have been used extensively in clinical practice.
Autologous chondrocyte transplantation
has also had success with osteochondral lesions in the knee and is beginning to be used for OCL of the talus.
