Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a disorder of subchondral bone that commonly affects the knee.
To determine the rate of donor-site morbidity after osteochondral autologous transplantation (OATS) for capitellar osteochondritis dissecans.
Although osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) has been a recognized condition for more than 100 years, our understanding of the etiology, natural history, and treatment remains poorly characterized. OCD m...
There are excellent data supporting recommendations to prevent elbow injuries (osteochondritis dissecans [OCD] and ulnar collateral ligament [UCL] injuries), such as pitch count and pitch type in base...
Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a disorder of subchondral bone that causes adverse effects on the overlying cartilage and commonly affects the knee. The incidence of OCD and its long-term effect on...
114 patients between 18 and 50 years with an isolated focal cartilage defect in the knee will be randomized to either receive arthroscopic microfracture or arthroscopic debridement. Both g...
The purpose of the study is to determine if by using MRI changes can be identified changes early on in the knees of young children that may be at risk for developing osteochondritis dissec...
The Cohort is a multi-site prospective data collection study that will enroll any patient with diagnosis of knee OCD (confirmed by a standard of care x-ray or MRI). Patients will be follow...
The purpose of this study was to randomly classify the upper third of the subscapularis in 1/2 of the rupture patients as preoperative group (arthroscopic and arthroscopic debridement grou...
82 patients aged 18-49 years with an isolated focal cartilage defect in the knee will be randomized to either receive autologous cartilage implantation or arthroscopic debridement. Both gr...
A type of osteochondritis in which articular cartilage and associated bone becomes partially or totally detached to form joint loose bodies. Affects mainly the knee, ankle, and elbow joints.
Fibrous, bony, cartilaginous and osteocartilaginous fragments in a synovial joint. Major causes are osteochondritis dissecans, synovial chondromatosis, osteophytes, fractured articular surfaces and damaged menisci.
Inflammation of a bone and its overlaying CARTILAGE.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Surgical techniques used to correct or augment healing of chondral defects in the joints (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR). These include abrasion, drilling, and microfracture of the subchondral bone to enhance chondral resurfacing via autografts, allografts, or cell transplantation.
