Abstract

Even though modem medicine offers a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, the acute articular cartilage injury still seems to be a problem, especially when associated with the trivial trauma of daily life or minor sports accidents. Above all, to achieve adequate treatment, it is of course necessary, that the injury will be diagnosed at all! It is therefore of eminent importance, that the surgeon is ready to take the possibility of such a lesion into consideration. Only then the probable high diagnostic failure rate can be diminished and an efficient therapy performed.
