A prospective, non-randomized, interventional, single-center, open-label clinical trial was conducted from January 2016 to April 2017
The results of our study indicate that the use of autologous and micro-fragmented adipose tissue in patients with knee OA (measured by dGEMRIC MRI) increased glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content in hyaline cartilage, which is in line with observed VAS and clinical results.
