This patient underwent a diagnostic
arthroscopy. The patellofemoral comparment, medial
gutter, and medial meniscus were normal. The ACL was
intact, and the findings in the lateral femoral compartment
are shown below.
What are your diagnoses and management
for these lesions ?
There was a radial tear of the lateral
meniscus in the white-white zone which required partial
meniscectomy. There was also a soft osteochondral lesion
on the weightbearing portion of the lateral femoral condyle.
This was debrided to expose subchondral bone below, and
saucerized to normal articular cartilage around the defect.
