Osteochondral Lesions of the Ankle: An Evidence-Based Approach for Track and Field Athletes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Osteochondral lesions (OCL) of the ankle present a problematic injury for the track and field athlete. As no superior treatment exists to date, an evidence-based personalized approach is advised for the treatment of ankle OCLs. Treatment is guided by patient- and lesion-characteristics, and consists of conservative treatment and surgery. After-treatment of track and field athletes is based on rehabilitation phases and should be a personalized process. This chapter serves as a practical guideline for the diagnosis, management, and rehabilitation of OCLs in the ankle in the track and field athlete.
