Confirmatory Study of NeoCart in Knee Cartilage Repair
This confirmatory study is a prospective randomized trial comparing the efficacy and safety of an autologous chondrocyte tissue implant (NeoCart) to the surgical intervention microfracture in the treatment of cartilage defects in the knee.

Autologous cartilagenous tissue implant
implantation of an cartilagenous tissue implant derived from the patients own cells.
Active Comparator: Microfracture
holes are created in bone at the base of the defect bed to encourage growth of tissue within the defect bed.
