Osteochondral lesions of the knee are a common cause of pain and disability among both skeletally mature and immature patients. Successful management requires a timely diagnosis, accurate lesion characterization, and proper treatment selection by non-operative management along with a variety of surgical procedures (internal fixation, osteochondral autograft transfer, osteochondral allograft transplant).
