Osteochondritis Dissecans has led us to a new problem of Valgus (knock-knees). My son is facing 2 more surgeries after failed arthroscopic surgeries. Distal Femoral Osteotomy will hopefully repair the Valgus & Osteochondral Allograft to replace the dead/broken away bone & worn cartilage.

Osteochondral Allograft plug from a cadaver donor is a possible solution to my son's Osteochondritis Dissecans.  Doctor assured us the tissue goes through 2 weeks of vigorous testing to assure it's healthy.  Then we have 2 weeks to do surgery because they do not keep donor tissue for longer than 30 days.

Osteochondral defects are focal areas of articular damage with cartilage damage and injury of the adjacent subchondral bone. It is a term that encompasses osteochondritis dissecans and is used synonymously with osteochondral injury/defect in the paediatric population.  Osteochondral injuries are graded according to the stability and location of the fragment and presence of secondary degenerative changes.

Osteochondritis dissecans of the knee. Osteochondral defect of  lateral aspect of  medial femoral condyle w underlying marrow oedema signal demonstrating low T1 + high PDFS / STIR signal.Degenerated PHMM w increased intra-meniscal signal intensity. No meniscal tear. Intact cruciate + collateral ligaments.The tibial plateau shows small 1 cm lobulated lesion demonstrating low T1 +high PD fat suppression / STIR signal. Mild joint effusion.Normal signal+ girth of  peri-articular musculature.
