Summary

Although articular cartilage lesions are encountered less frequently in the glenohumeral joint than in other joints, management of these lesions remains a challenging clinical problem. The literature lacks high-quality evidence regarding the nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for patients with these chondral defects. Additional high-quality comparative studies are necessary to determine which treatment strategies provide the best long-term outcomes for patients with glenohumeral articular cartilage lesions.
