Osteochondritis dissecans of the talus is a subset of osteochondral lesions of the talus that also includes osteochondral fractures, avascular necrosis, and degenerative arthritis. 41(A):988-1020. Role of magnetic resonance imaging and clinical criteria in predicting successful nonoperative treatment of osteochondritis dissecans in children. Usually a small area of bone adjacent to the articulating surface is affected. Flynn JM, Kocher MS, Ganley TJ. Osteochondral lesions (osteochondritis dissecans) of the talus are common articular lesions that are usually traumatic in origin. Most cases of OCD usually follow a twisting injury to the ankle and are actually fractures of the joint surface. We studied the value of MR imaging in determining the stability of the osteochondral fragments. Osteochondritis dissecans of the talus | Radiology Case ... ... . This retrospective IRB-approved and HIPPA-compliant study included children with OLT, who underwent an ankle MRI examination between March 1, 2011, and May 31, 2018. The talus is the 3rd most common site (after the knee and elbow) of osteochondral lesions. 1 ) and anterolateral (46%) talar dome ( 1 ). The purpose of our study was to investigate the performance of MRI findings to predict instability of osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) in children and the association between skeletal maturity and lesion stability. Osteochondritis dissecans has been reported to affect the ankle as the third most common joint, after the knee and the elbow. Magnetic resonance imaging of the elbow: update on current techniques and indications.
