Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a term used to describe a partial or complete separation of an articular cartilage and subchondral bone segment due to avascular necrosis. Maximum incidence is between the ages of 10 and 20 years. It is found more frequently in children who are athletes and is twice as common in boys as it is in girls. This condition most commonly affects the knee joint, with approximately 85% of lesions occurring in the medial femoral condyle and 15% of lesions occurring in the lateral femoral condyle (Aichroth 1971). Although osteochondritis dissecans can resolve by itself failure, to recognize this condition can lead to longterm disability.
