Today's Daily Dose: Subchondral bone cysts

VETERINARY MEDICINE

Untitled Document

“Conservative therapy is not recommended because progression of osteoarthritis and lameness is a likely sequel. Surgical debridement of the cyst often is the treatment of choice; however, surgical access to the cyst can be difficult. Recently, direct injection of the cyst with corticosteroids has gained popularity, and success rates are comparable to surgical debridement.”
