Abstract

Background: This study aims to document the long-term results in a group of patients treated with arthroscopic mosaicplasty for knee cartilage lesions, both in terms of clinical outcome and joint degeneration progression, evaluated by radiographs. Methods: 26 patients (19 men and 7 women, mean age 29years, mean BMI 23) treated arthroscopically with mosaicplasty for cartilage defects of the femoral condyles (mean/median/mode size 1.9 standard deviation, SD 0.6cm2) were prospectively evaluated at 12years follow-up. The clinical outcome was analyzed with IKDC and Tegner scores. Range of motion, transpatellar and suprapatellar circumferences were also measured. Radiographs with weight-bearing antero-posterior and Rosenberg projections were used for radiological evaluation in 18 patients, applying both Kellgren-Lawrence score and a direct joint line measurement to assess osteoarthritis. Results: A significant improvement in all clinical scores was obtained from the basal evaluation to the 12-year follow-up (IKDC subjective score from 36.8 standard deviation, SD 13.0 to 77.3 standard deviation, SD 20.6, P.
