The lateral X-ray view of the knee is more likely to yield the diagnosis of osteochondritis dissecans of the femoral condyles if the examiner is aware that most cases are located in the subarticular bone of the medial femoral condyle between two lines: The first extended anteriorly from the density of the roof of the intercondylar notch, and the second, extended distally from the posterior cortex of the distal femoral diaphysis. 
Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Femoral Condyle in the Growth Stage
TLDR
Magnetic resonance imaging often revealed discoid menisci or meniscal tears in patients with lesions in the lateral condyle, suggesting that endogenous forces play an important role in the onset of osteochondritis dissecans. Expand
Osteochondritis dissecans. History, pathophysiology and current treatment concepts.
TLDR
The past and current status of osteochondritis dissecans suggests that there is still no clear cut etiology and the existence of two clinical patterns is important. Expand
Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Knee: Experiences at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a Review of Literature
TLDR
The etiology, clinical findings, diagnostic imaging, treatment options, rehabilitation, and considerations for future management based on current literature and the experiences at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are discussed. Expand
Comparison of Weightbearing and Nonweightbearing Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans Lesions of the Lateral Femoral Condyle
TLDR
Lateral femoral condyle OCD lesions of the knee in WB and NWB zones presented similarly at initial evaluation; however, NWB lesions demonstrated higher rates of progeny bone formation and radiographic healing at mean 2-year follow-up. Expand
Treatment algorithm for osteochondritis dissecans of the knee.
TLDR
The authors' preferred treatment algorithm for osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the knee is based on skeletal maturity, OCD lesion stability, and OCD lesions salvageability, and autologous chondrocyte implants with bone grafting. Expand

Juvenile osteochondritis of femoral condyles: treatment with transchondral drilling. Analysis of 40 cases
TLDR
All patients presenting juvenile condylar osteochondritis with open growth plate during treatment had good clinical and radiological results, confirming the validity and effectiveness of multiple transchondral drilling in this type of lesion. Expand

Management strategies for osteochondritis dissecans of the knee in the skeletally immature athlete.
TLDR
It is recommended that rehabilitation of JOCD be tailored to the individual patient, based on the stage and radiographic status of the lesion and the mode of surgery employed when surgically addressed. Expand
