Articular cartilage has poor reparative capacities, and once damaged cartilage lesions remain chronic and can lead to osteoarthritis. Over the last decade, several innovative therapies have been introduced to promote the regeneration of articular cartilage while sustaining sufficient mechanical stress and permitting a pain free motion. An important measure of outcome is the morphological characterization of the repair tissue in order to allow for cross-study evaluation. The International Cartilage Repair Society has developed a analogue visual scale to quantify repair tissue, which is described in this paper.
