A 36-year-old patient reported persistent right knee crepitation and pain two years after falling directly onto their knee. Prior conservative management and arthroscopic chondroplasty was undergone without any resolution. Imaging and arthroscopy demonstrated a full-thickness cartilage defect in the lateral trochlea.
Three months post-operation, the patient has regained full range of motion. The pain and crepitation that they had been experiencing has also been resolved.
