AJSM Webinar Series - October 2020
Course Information
The American Journal of Sports Medicine is proud to announce the next installment in our journal webinar series.* This webinar will feature the article “Shorter Storage Time Is Strongly Associated With Improved Graft Survivorship at 5 Years After Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation.” Moderator Kristofer Jones, MD, and author Andreas Gomoll, MD, will be joined by a panel consisting of Riley Williams, MD and Aaron Krych, MD, to discuss technological and biological advancements in treating focal cartilage defects.

Focal cartilage defects of the knee are common and continue to present clinical challenges despite technological and biological advancements. How should we approach the management of cartilage defects in 2020? Is there an ideal treatment algorithm or should we be utilizing a more individualized patient-centered approach? Is microfracture still considered the “gold-standard”? When should concomitant procedures such as knee osteotomy or meniscus allograft transplantation be considered? Are there different treatment considerations for the high-demand athlete? These and other questions will be discussed in this virtual event.
