Abstract

The successful treatment of chondral and osteochondral lesions of the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint is a challenge for orthopedic surgeons. If the primary treatment fails, revision or salvage procedures are even limited particularly when subchondral bone integrity is lost. A 35-yearold male patient presented with right knee pain, locking and limited range of motion. His past medical history revealed a femoral osteochondral injury which had been treated with silicone implantation. The implant was removed, and remaining large osteochondral (5cm2) lesion was treated with mosaicplasty. At the 5-year follow-up, the patient was symptom-free with almost complete radiographic incorporation of the graft. This case suggests that mosaicplasty is a good alternative salvage procedure for osteochondral defects of the femoral condyle even when the subchondral bone integrity is lost.
