Osteochondritis Dissecans of the First Metatarsophalangeal Joint: Arthroscopy and Microfracture Technique

Abstract: Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is a localized disorder of the joint surface by which a segment of subchondral bone and its overlying cartilage become fragmented. Arthroscopic treatment of OCD of the first metatarsophalangeal joint consisted mainly of debridement and loose body removal. The microfracture technique for the treatment of OCD of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is presented for the first time.
