Indications for Use:
The Subchondroplasty® Procedure, often performed along with arthroscopy, is a minimally-invasive, fluoroscopically-assisted procedure. The SCP® Procedure targets and fills subchondral bone defects often called Bone Marrow Lesions (BML) in patients who have not responded to conservative treatment.
Patients typically present with:
- Presence of bone defect seen on fat-suppressed MRI (T2FS, PDFS, STIR, etc.)
- No resolution of BML with conservative care or other intervention
Discuss all treatment options with your patient. All surgical procedures carry a certain level of risk. A complete assessment of possible risks should be discussed before making the decision to have surgery.
