Title: OCD
Post by: The KNEEguru on January 01, 2003, 04:12:28 PM
Osteo-chondral defect.

osteo = bone
chondral = joint cartilage ("gristle")

OCD is a defect in the joint surface covering of a joint, where a piece of cartilage and maybe bone are missing, having been knocked out in an accident or falling out because of degeneration of the joint.
