About the webinar:
Articular surface lesions can be limited to cartilage or can extend to the underlying subchondral bone as it is observed in osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), osteonecrosis, and osteochondral fractures.
The ankle joint is characterized by more congruency than the knee resulting in thinner cartilage, which requires much more precision in chondral surface reconstruction. Biological treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talar dome (OLT) aims to restore layers of the defect using biological material that undergoes further remodeling and integration with the surrounding tissue. The purpose of the reconstruction is to effectively recreate the shape of the talar dome in each different location, especially on the medial edge, where the most common traumatic lesions are located.
