  1. The two groups show similar baseline characteristics. aValues are the mean ± standard deviation. AC, autologous chondrocyte transplantation; ALT, alanine aminotransferase; AST, aspartate aminotransferase; BUN, blood urea nitrogen; CI, confidence interval; Cr, creatinine; SD, subchondral drilling.
