Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The OATS technique is one of several cartilage repair procedures that exhibits promising short- to intermediate-term results in the surgical management of OLTs. Although the OATS procedure is generally reserved for salvage of failed debridement and drilling, some investigators are suggesting that it may have applications in primary surgical management of OLTs, particularly those that are associated with subchondral cysts. Long-term outcome of the OATS procedure for OLTs is not yet available.
