We are proud to present the first Annual report of the ICRS cartilage repair database, we hope you find it interesting and informative. We are most grateful for the huge contribution our Manager Caitlin Conley has made to the production of this report. We would like to thank Professor Leela Biant for the sterling work she has put into making the database a reality.
The generous funding from our industry sponsors is vitally important to support the realization of the concept of the first global multi-language cartilage treatment database. Our aim remains to be the best source of information for our patients and for ourselves as scientists and clinicians working to help those unfortunate enough to suffer the pain and disability associated with articular cartilage lesions. The database is now live in eight languages English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Greek, Dutch, and Polish. We thank ICRS member who assisted with translations and testing of the translated interfaces.
