Özet

Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) with a large subchondral bone cyst (SBC) is not common. The treatment of this lesion may be unsuccessful with conventional techniques. A novel surgical technique is described for the treatment of OCD with SBC of the femoral condyle. Modified osteochondral multiple autograft transfer following extraarticular curettage and bone grafting of SBC is a promising technique.
