Abstract

A total of 55 patients with a mean age of 19.6 years were treated using the described technique: 49 patients (89.1%), and 54 knees respectively (35 juvenile OCD, 19 adult OCD), were seen with a mean follow-up of 37.9 months. An improvement was observed in 81.6% of the knees using the radiographic score, i.e., a mean improvement of 1.13 of the radiographic score published by Rodegerdts and Gleissner (preoperative 3.04 vs. postoperative 1.91). Juvenile OCD showed better radiographic results overall (88.2% healing) than adult OCD (66.7% healing).
