Arthroscopic surgery for chondral flaps in the knee.

Author information

  • Gian Clwyd Hospital, Bodelwyddan, Rhyl, Wales.


A retrospective review of 50 knees in 46 patients treated by arthroscopic removal of chondral flaps is reported. There was a relationship between the site of the flap and the type of symptoms; patellofemoral flaps produced anterior knee pain, posterior condylar flaps produced instability. At review after 18 to 36 months, after a second arthroscopy in eight cases, 44 of the 50 knees had retained significant improvement and 33 were symptom-free.
