What is Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) of the Knee Joint?

Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) is a condition that develops in adolescents where inadequate blood supply within the joint surface causes a small segment of bone or cartilage to separate from the rest of the joint. This segment may heal on it’s own over time (more common in younger cases) or continue to detach (more common during adulthood) becoming a loose body within the joint.

OCD in the knee presents as a gradual onset of knee pain, which may occasionally lock and/or swell.
