The In Vivo Performance of Osteochondral Allografts in the Goat Is Diminished With Extended Storage and Decreased Cartilage Cellularity
The American Journal of Sports Medicine, 08/09/2012
Pallante AL et al. – Reduced cellularity at the articular surface, resulting from 4°C storage, was associated with variable long–term outcomes versus consistently good repair by fresh allografts. Cellularity at the articular surface was an important index of biological performance.
