Fresh distal tibia allograft reconstruction results in a clinically stable joint with excellent outcomes in reducing the rate of dislocation and improving pain and function.
To assess outcomes of patients who concomitantly underwent an osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation and osteotomy.
To assess meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) outcomes and compare the results of different root fixation techniques through systematic literature review. The significant overall improvements in function and pain scores accompanied by low allograft failure rates suggest that MAT is a reliable option. The current data does not demonstrate a difference in fixation method which may suggest that it does not have a significant influence on clinical outcome.
This paper assesses osteochondral allograft (OCA) survivorship in an athletic patient population as well as determine the level of sport patients are able to return to post-operatively. OCA transplantation can be a successful solution for cartilage injuries in athletes as it allows the majority of patients to resume their highly active lifestyles.
The purpose of this paper is to nvestigate the long-term survival rate of meniscal allograft transplantations (MAT) with bone fixation. MAT using a bone fixation technique demonstrated a high clinical survival rate over long-term follow-up.
Despite the high incidence of reoperation and failure, carefully selected patients can experience substantially improved function as a result of fresh OCA transplantation in the talus.
