Purpose: The purpose is to show that the talus allograft is a potential allograft for treatment of an engaging reverse Hill-Sachs lesion.
Summary: The talus allograft has recently been proposed as a potential allograft for Hill-Sachs and reverse Hill-Sachs lesion reconstruction due to the superior articular surface of the talus that is used to reconstruct the articular surface of the humeral head because of the similar congruency between the radii of curvature seen with the talar dome and with the humeral head.
