Purpose: To evaluate osteochondral allograft (OCA) clinical outcomes and survivorship in the femoral trochlea.
Take Away: The use of a fresh OCA in the femoral trochlea yielded excellent clinical outcomes as well as improved pain, function and had high patient satisfaction. These results are equivalent to what can be achieved with a fresh OCA transplantation in the femoral condyle
