Osteochochondral Deffect in right Knee “Loose Body”

Does anybody know what this would be rated as? I’ve looked and looked and I have no idea. My Med board says “Loose Body” but the loose body was removed but I still have the defect on my femoral condyle. I need another surgery when I get out and a knee replacement in a couple years.

It will probably be analogously coded 5299-5003 (arthritis, degenerative), based upon existing archival case data.
