Humeral Head

The humeral head allograft is used for resurfacing cartilage defects in the shoulder with mature hyaline cartilage. In other instances, Talus or Hemi-Condyle allografts have also been used to restore the cartilage surface of the humeral head.

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