Reconstruction of cartilage tissue is an essential aspect of modern reconstructive surgery. This experimental study outlines the development and in vivo application of autologous cartilage tissue with flexible configuration with a Reperen on-lay mesh. As a result of the experiment, a novel method was developed for fixation of cartilage transplants in the recipient zone in a predetermined configuration. This allows for shape retention in the recipient zone during cartilage transplantation.
