|Articular Cartilage Defects of Knee||Procedure: Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation|
Many treatment cases proved that autologous chondrocyte transplantation is a useful treatment method for patients with damaged articular cartilage.
This investigator-sponsored trial attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of Chondron(autologous chondrocyte) transplantation by tracking subjects who had the Chondron implantation to observe effectiveness.
