The Femoral Condyle Allograft has been used for resurfacing cartilage defects with mature hyaline cartilage for several decades, with very high success rates. This adaptable graft option is most commonly used with OATS or shell techniques to restore cartilage in the knee, but can also be used to for cartilage restoration of other joints. Published studies have shown that a lateral hemi-condyle can be used successfully to restore the natural curvature of a medial femoral condyle.
