Osteochondral Allografts

Overview

The humeral head allograft is used for resurfacing cartilage defects in the shoulder with mature hyaline cartilage. Expanded uses include Biologic Shoulder Resurfacing when used in conjunction with Humeral Head allograft, as described by Dr Ruben Gobezie in Arthroscopy, November 2014. In other instances, Hemi-Condyle allografts have also been used to restore the cartilage surface of the humeral head.

 

Studies show that fresh osteochondral allografts transplanted with high chondrocyte viability have significant functional and clinical advantages. JRF Ortho is the largest provider of fresh osteochondral allografts offering viable biologic solutions for a range of challenging joint defects.
