In a study of 25 cases of osteochondritis dissecans of the knee assessed clinically, and radiologically and treated by different modalities, it was observed that it commonly occurred in males (24) and involved the medial femoral condyle in all cases. Operative treatment was considered when the fragment appeared loose, separated or involved the weight bearing surface of the femur. Fixation of the fragment with an AO cancellous screw was considered to yield best results.
