PreIcc - ICC

Chondrocyte Implant

At Solcot, we work to provide our patients with the best  services. We make the latest innovations from the health and medical sector available to them, so that they can recover as quickly and as effectively as possible. We recently added a revolutionary technique to our specialties: chondrocyte pre-implants (CCIpre) and chondrocyte implants (CCI). These procedures have both been endorsed by the most prestigious laboratory in our country, Amplicel.


Chondrocyte preimplantation (pre ACI) is a technique based on an articular surgery that is taken advantage of for a separate reason, extracting a small sample of cartilage that is subsequently cultured and frozen. This would make it possible to treat future injuries with exceptional results. It’s the perfect technique for athletes or people who exert themselves physically and are likely to be injured.


Chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is an effective alternative to circumscribed cartilage lesions, such as osteochondritis dissecans, patellar chondropathy, ankle chondromalacia, osteochondral lesions, etc.

Through the implantation or transplantation of cartilage, we extract cartilage cells (chondrocytes) from the patient and cultivate them, and subsequently deposit them in a collagen membrane, with which the cartilage defect is covered. The implanted chondrocytes produce hyaline collagen that replaces the collagen in the synthetic membrane, until the differences between the implanted cartilage and the person’s own cartilage disappear.

People who receive a cartilage implantation operation present an improvement in clinical symptoms such as pain and joint effusion, ultimately regaining joint mobility and returning to their normal sports activities.
