Abstract

Case: We report the 3-year outcomes of a 14-year-old boy who anteriorly dislocated his shoulder playing football and suffered a 9-cm2 chondral defect of the anterior glenoid and subsequently treated with matrix-applied characterized autologous chondrocytes (MACI) of the defect with open labral repair. Conclusion: The management of glenohumeral chondral lesions in adolescent patients remains a challenge. Our case of the successful treatment of a glenoid chondral defect with MACI offers hope as a potential treatment option for adolescent patients with this challenging problem.
