Cartilage Injuries


Cartilage is responsible for the smooth gliding movements of the joint. Cartilage injuries can occur along with ACL ruptures at the time of injury or because of the repeated instability associated with ACL deficient knee. Only a localized part of the cartilage is injured and hence they are called focal cartilage injury. Cartilage injuries are difficult to diagnose clinically and in MRI. Arthroscopy is the only modality, which can clearly visualize the injury and treat it.

The cartilage injury is graded according to depth and extent. Superficial lesions are debrided and smoothened. For full thickness lesions either Microfracture Chondroplasty or autologous osteochondral transfer (mosaic plasty ) is carried out.
