The bone is then reabsorbed by the body, leaving the articular cartilage it supported prone to damage. The result is fragmentation (dissection) of both cartilage and bone, and the free movement of these osteochondral fragments within the joint space, causing pain and further damage" [HPO:0010886] Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) is sometimes called osteochondrosis dissecans and is a more severe form of Osteochondrosis (OC) - see OMIA000750.
