Summary: Compared to other Bone Marrow Stimulation techniques (BMS), nanofracture results in diminished areas of destruction, sclerosis, and thickening of the subchondral bone in regions adjacent to the defect, thereby limiting the amount of perimeter compaction. BMS using larger diameter devices results in greater microarchitecture disturbances.
