About the book
Cartilage lesions of the knee are common and should be treated correctly if symptomatic. Until now, multiple (surgical) techniques have been described; however, there is no consensus on which one should be used. Also, treatment techniques using platelet-rich plasma, mesenchymal stem cells, and different king of growth hormones have been mentioned. In this book, the importance of other knee structures when treating these knee cartilage defects will be discussed as the meniscus, integrity of ligaments, and the importance of the alignment of the lower limb will be emphasized. The book will give an update on the different treatment approaches in knees with this (osteo-)chondral lesion.
