Case Study
The article presents a case study of a forty-nine-year-old man who was treated with matrix-associated autologous chondrocyte transplantation for a single full-thickness cartilage defect of the medical femoral condyle. It notes that the graft hypertrophy is not observed postoperatively. In addition, images using morphological preoperative magnetic resonance imaging are presented.

    We describe a 56-year-old man with an intrasellar craniopharyngioma who under­went transphenoidal resection and abdominal fat grafting of the dural opening. Follow-up MRI showed hypertrophy of the sellar fat graft concurrent with the patient's weight gain. To our best of knowledge sellar fat...
