  • Osteochondritis dissecans elbowOsteochondritis dissecans, also referred to as OCD of the elbow, is a disorder characterized by cracks in the articular cartilage or the lining of the elbow joint. When this cartilage loses blood supply, it can begin to wear down and crack, leading to damage to the underlying bone. Osteochondritis dissecans in the elbow most commonly occurs in the capitellum, the end of the humerus (upper arm bone) that is part of the elbow joint.

    Osteochondritis dissecans occurs in athletes who are still growing, most commonly affecting adolescent athletes.
