Purpose: To assess short-term magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and minimum 2-year clinical outcomes of nonorthotopic patellar OCA using an FCA donor.

Conclusion: The majority of nonorthotopic patellar grafts demonstrated full osseous incorporation and good restoration of the articular surface on MRI at short-term follow-up.
