Distal Tibia can be used alone or in conjunction with a Talus to restore cartilage surface in the ankle.
Additionally, as the leader in osteochondral allografts (OCA), JRF Ortho works with surgeons to advance the treatment of bone and cartilage defects. Dr Matthew Provencher, in conjunction with JRF Ortho, pioneered the use of distal tibia osteochondral allograft to repair glenoid bone loss and achieve restoration of the glenoid arc with solid bone and smooth cartilage.
Studies show that fresh osteochondral allografts transplanted with viable chondrocytes have significant functional and clinical advantages.
Distal Tibia Allograft for Glenoid Bone Loss: Dr. Matthew Provencher
Matthew T. Provencher, MD demonstrates the use of a distal tibia allograft for anterior glenoid reconstruction when faced with significant bone loss. He uses the Distal Tibia Allograft Workstation which helps to accurately template, prepare and fixate the desired bone block.
