AMIC® Talus

An innovative biological cartilage repair method for treating chondral and osteochondral defects in the talus.

  • A minimally invasive, one-step surgical technique for the treatment of chondral and osteochondral lesions larger than 1 cm2
  • Based on microfracturing, the established first-line treatment
  • Natural protection of the super clot resulting from Chondro-Gide®’s unique bilayer structure
  • Positive influence on chondrogenic cell differentiation through Chondro-Gide®
  • Marked reduction in discomfort, even after resumption of sports activities
  • Promising clinical results
  • Straightforward, cost-efficient surgical technique
