Tibial Plateau Cartilage Lesions: A Systematic Review of Techniques, Outcomes, and Complications

Purpose: To determine (1) current reported treatment options for isolated tibial plateau (TP) cartilage lesions, (2) patient reported outcomes following various treatments, and (3) complication rate and survivorship following various treatments.

Summary: Patient reported outcome measures were heterogeneous in nature, but improvements were reported following all surgical treatments except for microfracture, which resulted in decreased scores at mid-term follow-up.
