Osteochondral injuries are common, mainly affecting a young, active population. Failure to recognize these injuries can lead to long-term disability. A heightened awareness and understanding of the common mechanisms of injury will lead to early diagnosis and rapid recovery. This, along with improved treatment modalities, will keep any long-term disability to a minimum.
