Abstract

The treatment of osteochondral lesions remains a clinical challenge. A “treatment-gap” has been identified, where middle-aged patients with focal knee-lesions are considered too old for biological treatment, and yet too young for uni- or total arthroplasty (UKA/ TKA). In order to try to fill this gap, a novel metal mini-prosthesis – Hemicap® - was invented and clinically tested, and was introduced in Denmark (DK) in 2006. The aim of this case report is to present this first “Danish patient” at his 10-year clinical follow-up.
