Purpose: To determine (1) current reported treatment options for isolated tibial plateau cartilage lesions, (2) patient reported outcomes following various treatments, and (3) complication rate and survivorship following various treatments.
Conclusion: Various surgical techniques have been utilized for the treatment of TP cartilage lesions. Patient-reported outcome measures were heterogeneous, but improvements were reported following all surgical treatments except for microfracture.
