Current Condition

No pain Full range of motion

No effusion No clicking, popping or locking Able to ride a bicycle and swim Avocations are art and music The American Journal of Sports Medicine, July 2010

Background: Prevalence 0.01 0.06%, 2:1 males, 75% involve knee, thereof 7080% medial femoral condyle. Etiology unknown mechanical, vascular, genetic, inflammatory, ossification problems? Purpose: Relationship b/n localization of OCD & mechanical axis of leg?

Study Design: Retrospective study of case series between January 1993 and December 2007 in single ortho dept. Methods: Used b/l full-leg standing radiographs in 93 adolescent and adult patients (103 knees) with OCD of medial

or lateral femoral condyle. Mechanical axis was calculated by the method of Fujisawa et al*: 0% represents knee center 100% represents medial

and lateral border of the joint *Fujisawa Y, Masuhara K, Shiomi S. The effect of high tibial osteotomy on osteoarthritis of the knee: an arthroscopic study of 54 knee joints. Orthop Clin North Am. 1979;10(3):585-608.

Results: Location of OCD and position of mechanical axis in same knee compartment was significantly correlated for both medial (P< 0.001) as well as lateral (P< 0.012) compartment OCD. Significant lateral shift compared to unaffected side. Statistically insignificant medial shift with respect to unaffected side.

Results: No significant difference between adolescents with open growth plates compared with adults with closed growth plates (P > .05).

Conclusion: Association between medial condyle OCD and varus axis and between lateral condyle OCD and valgus axis. Higher loading of the affected than of the unaffected knee compartment. Axial alignment may be a cofactor in OCD of the femoral condyles.


9 b/l cases in medial OCD -- affecting shift calculations? Single institution Relatively small subgroups in sample bias?

The full-leg standing radiographs are not done uniformly at the onset of symptoms many patients were referred later to their institution
