cartilage repair procedures have been used with osteochondral talar dome lesions, including debridement, arthroscopic drilling, mosaicplasty (osteochon-dral autograft), or retrograde drilling [4,8-10]. One study suggested that debridement of the remaining articular cartilage before drilling may yield improved results compared with drilling with the residual degenerated articular cartilage in place .
Cartilage degeneration in the subtalar, talonavicular, or naviculocuneiform joints can also be a source of pain in the posttraumatic ankle (Fig. 4).
