Abstract

The management of patients with articular cartilage defects of the knee is challenging as patient profiling is still based on a variety of treatment algorithms which are affected by healthcare availability and surgeon or (expert) center preference. Therefore, it is difficult for the surgeon to make an evidence-based decision for the individual patient. This chapter seeks to explore the current evidence for treatment selection and provides tools for daily clinical practice as well as an updated comprehensive evidence-based treatment algorithm.
