Purpose: To explore the technique for anatomical glenoid reconstruction using a fresh osteochondral distal tibia allograft after a failed Latarjet procedure. This bony augmentation technique employs a readily available dense, weight-bearing osseous tissue source that has excellent conformity, as well as the added benefit of a cartilaginous surface to correct chondral deficiencies.
Summary: The distal tibia allograft (DTA) has been used successfully in early efforts to treat anterior glenoid bone loss and instability. DTA has also been successfully applied in a posterior glenoid deficiency reconstruction.
