The article presents the results of research which was conducted in an effort to compare the long term results of two groups of patients with osteochondral lesions in the knee joint who were treated with two different procedures. Researchers evaluated the patients with magnetic resonance imaging five years after their surgery to determine if their were any different outcomes between the two groups.

    Synovial chondromatosis (SC) is a rare, mostly benign proliferation of the synovium of the joint, tendon or bursa which results in the formation of loose bodies. It can appear in one of 33 described localisations, but it is most common in the knee. In our study we gathered a group of 7 patients...

    The goal of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of 3-Tesla MRI for the assessment of degenerative meniscal tears in clinical practice. In patients with chronic knee pain, a negative history of acute trauma and a mean age of 52 years, 3-Tesla MRI were performed a few days prior...
