Osteochondritis dissecans

Common Name(s)

Osteochondritis dissecans

In osteochondritis dissecans, a loose piece of bone and cartilage separates from the end of the bone because of a loss of blood supply. The loose piece may stay in place or fall into the joint space, making the joint unstable. This causes pain and feelings that the joint "sticks" or is "giving way." Osteochondritis dissecans usually affects the knees and elbows.
