Abstract

Case: We report the case of a patient with bilateral multicompartmental bone marrow edema syndrome of the knee, which responded favorably to subchondral core decompression after failing to respond to nonoperative treatment. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that subchondral core decompression can be effective for the treatment of bone marrow edema syndrome.
