The surgical management of symptomatic articular cartilage defects of the knee: Consensus statements from United Kingdom knee surgeons

Biant LC, McNicholas MJ, Sprowson AP, Spalding T. Knee. 2015 Jun 23. pii: S0968-0160(15)00129-5. doi: 10.1016/j.knee.2015.06.001. [Epub ahead of print]

A new consensus statement on the surgical management of symptomatic articular cartilage defects of the knee has been released by the UK Cartilage Consensus Meeting. The consensus statement focused on “an isolated defect of the knee…where alignment was normal or surgically corrected by osteotomy, and free of inflammatory joint disease and with some functional meniscal tissue remaining.” Furthermore, surgery was considered only after there was no response to conservative care. The document provides a brief overview of surgical treatment strategies and 7 consensus statements.
