The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of preoperative MRI for the staging of osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesions of the knee and the talus in juvenile patients, using arthroscopy as the gold standard of diagnosis. Sixty-three juvenile patients (range 8–16 years) with an OCD of the knee or the talus underwent arthroscopy after MRI. In 54/9… CONTINUE READING
