OBJECTIVE: To determine the rate of return of patients to sport after arthroscopic autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis (AT-AMIC) for outcomes 2 years after surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective observational cross-sectional study. SETTING: C.A.S.C.O.-Foot and Ankle Unit, Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi, Milan, Italy. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION: Twenty-six consecutive patients, 65.4% male (mean ± SD age: 33.7 ± 11.0 years), that underwent AT-AMIC procedure between 2012 and 2015 were selected retrospectively. From this population, only sporting patients at amateur's level were included. Arthroscopic autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis was proposed in patients with pain and persistent disability. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: All patients were assessed with the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Score (AOFAS), physical component score of the 12-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-12), Halasi ankle activity score, and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) activity scale preoperatively and at 24 months postoperatively. RESULTS: Overall, 80.8% of the patient group returned to the same preinjury sport. The mean follow-up was 42.6 ± 10.9 months (range from 25 to 62 months). Significant differences were observed with reference to AOFAS, SF-12, Halasi, and UCLA scores at the last follow-up in patients who had undergone AT-AMIC (all, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: A high percentage of patients return to their preinjury sport after AT-AMIC surgery.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine the rate of return of patients to sport after arthroscopic autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis (AT-AMIC) for outcomes 2 years after surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective observational cross-sectional study. SETTING: C.A.S.C.O.-Foot and Ankle Unit, Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi, Milan, Italy. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION: Twenty-six consecutive patients, 65.4% male (mean ± SD age: 33.7 ± 11.0 years), that underwent AT-AMIC procedure between 2012 and 2015 were selected retrospectively. From this population, only sporting patients at amateur's level were included. Arthroscopic autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis was proposed in patients with pain and persistent disability. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: All patients were assessed with the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Score (AOFAS), physical component score of the 12-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-12), Halasi ankle activity score, and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) activity scale preoperatively and at 24 months postoperatively. RESULTS: Overall, 80.8% of the patient group returned to the same preinjury sport. The mean follow-up was 42.6 ± 10.9 months (range from 25 to 62 months). Significant differences were observed with reference to AOFAS, SF-12, Halasi, and UCLA scores at the last follow-up in patients who had undergone AT-AMIC (all, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: A high percentage of patients return to their preinjury sport after AT-AMIC surgery.
