Patellofemoral chondral lesions are unique and difficult-to-treat entities often affecting a young and active patient population. Recent advances in our understanding of cartilage injuries, surgical techniques, and surgical technology have provided treatment options for symptomatic patients with lesions of the patellofemoral compartment. A number of surgical treatment options are available, including surgical microfracture, autologous or juvenile chondrocyte implantation, osteochondral autograft transfer, and osteochondral allograft implantation. Management decisions are based on a number of patient- and lesion-related factors in an effort to relieve pain, restore function, and preserve the patellofemoral articulation. The present article reviews the evaluation and management of cartilage injuries affecting the patellofemoral joint.
