Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee is a condition which occurs when a portion of bone or its overlying articular cartilage is cut off from the blood supply, creating a “dead” area of bone and cartilage.
Osteochondritis dissecans of the knee usually affects the condyle of the femur, and may occur after injury or trauma to the knee, or from repeated stress of competitive sports.
This condition usually resolves spontaneously in most juvenile cases, in about 50% of adolescents, and rarely in adults.
