Cartilage Repair Technique: Skeletally Immature
We are unable to recommend for or against a specific cartilage repair technique in symptomatic skeletally immature patients with unsalvageable

Rationale
The AAOS conducted a systematic review of the literature and found one quality study to address this recommendation.  Because there was only one Level II study and many applicable outcomes and techniques were not addressed, the results of this single study were evaluated as inconclusive.
