Journal of the Belgian Society of Radiology, 101(S2), 1. comments powered by Despite the combination of these MR parameters, accurate cartilage evaluation remains often illusive. Coronal reformatted CBCT-A (c) barely shows subtle subchondral sclerosis at the superolateral aspect of the talar dome and intact overlying cartilage. Sagittal (a) and coronal (b) fat suppressed T2-WI showing multilocular subchondral cysts (black arrowheads) at the medial aspect of the talar dome. Purpose: The purpose of our study was to investigate the performance of MRI findings to predict instability of osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT) in children and the association between skeletal maturity and lesion stability. The purpose of this study was to investigate tissue growth after arthroscopic microfracture of OLTs using computed tomography arthrography (CTA) and to identify the relationship between CTA findings and clinical outcomes. Planning of the pathway and adjustment of the targeting device were performed outside the operating room. Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc.

DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fas.2013.10.005, Pritsch, M, Horoshovski, H and Farine, I. Arthroscopic treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus. Most classification systems are based on lesion descriptions by Berndt and Harty ( 2 ): MRI is the modality of choice, with high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of separation of the osteochondral fragment (see: osteochondral injury staging and osteochondritis dissecans surgical staging). Moreover, despite several modifications of the staging systems on MRI, not all combination of the degree of involvement of the cartilage and subchondral bone are included and therefore these classification systems remain uncomprehensive, complicated and less valuable for use in daily routine.
