Overview: This paper describe a technique for osteochondral allograft transplantation to the patella for an isolated patellar chondral lesion (unipolar).

Discussion: The advantages of using a large OCA are that it provides size-matched specimens to effectively restore the native morphology of the patella and is less expensive than alternative methods.
