Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Knee Lesions After Failure of Cartilage Repair Surgery

Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Knee Lesions After Failure of Cartilage Repair Surgery

OCA transplantation is a successful salvage surgical treatment after cartilage repair procedures.

Fresh Precut Osteochondral Allograft Core Transplantation for the Treatment of Femoral Cartilage Defects

As OCA transplantation has emerged as a popular option for the treatment of cartilage defects, standard techniques for graft matching rely on pairing donor-recipient size. However, this can be mitigated by using OCA cores for small lesions. Read more

Outcomes of Latarjet Versus Distal Tibia Allograft for Anterior Shoulder Instability Repair: A Matched Cohort Analysis

Outcomes of Latarjet Versus Distal Tibia Allograft for Anterior Shoulder Instability Repair: A Matched Cohort Analysis

Anterior glenoid reconstruction with fresh distal tibia allograft (DTA) has been described for management of recurrent shoulder instability, with encouraging early outcomes with similar clinical outcomes as the Latarjet procedure.

Glenoid Reconstruction with Distal Tibia Allograft for Recurrent Anterior Shoulder Instability

Glenoid Reconstruction with Distal Tibia Allograft for Recurrent Anterior Shoulder Instability

Using fresh distal tibia allograft has been reported as an anatomic, osteoarticular reconstructive option for restoring the glenoid arc and maintaining glenohumeral congruency. Read more

Management of Glenoid Bone Loss with Anterior Shoulder Instability: Indications and Outcomes

There is good evidence for use of new techniques including the distal tibia allograft, which can be used as reconstruction options. Read more

Graft Transfer Technique in Arthroscopic Posterior Glenoid Reconstruction with Distal Tibia Allograft

Graft Transfer Technique in Arthroscopic Posterior Glenoid Reconstruction with Distal Tibia Allograft

Posterior glenoid augmentation is a technically demanding procedure that requires strict surgical indication. Although both iliac crest and distal tibia allograft have been shown to restore glenohumeral contact pressures, the authors prefer distal tibia allograft because of its congruity to the articular surface, lack of graft harvest morbidity, and retained cartilaginous surface for articulation with the native humeral head in a patient cohort that is at risk for progressive osteoarthritic development.

Comparison of Glenohumeral Contact Pressures and Contact Areas After Posterior Glenoid Reconstruction with an Iliac Crest Bone Graft or Distal Tibial Osteochondral Allograft

Reconstruction with fresh distal tibial allograft (DTA) is an alternative option, with the theoretical advantages of restoring the glenoid articular surface, improving joint congruity, and providing the biological restoration of articular cartilage loss. Read more

Viable Osteochondral Allograft for the Treatment of a Full Thickness Cartilage Defect of the Patella

Osteochondral allografts are used to fill deeper bone defects where the thin osseous layer of cryopreserved OCA implants are not sufficient for these deeper lesions. Read more

Fresh Osteochondral Patellar Allograft Resurfacing

Fresh Osteochondral Patellar Allograft Resurfacing

The aim of this study was to present a simple and reproducible way to perform a fresh osteochondral patellar allograft resurfacing procedure covering the indications, surgical technique, site preparation, graft preparation, and graft placement. Read more

Use of Fresh Osteochondral Allografts in the Patellofemoral Joint

With newer surgical approaches and a better understanding of the mechanical requirements of the PF joint, the use of OCA transplantation has shown increasingly better results. Read more

Fresh Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Isolated Patellar Cartilage Injury

OCA transplantation was successful as a salvage treatment procedure for cartilage injuries of the patella.

Bipolar Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation of the Patella and Trochlea

Bipolar Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation of the Patella and Trochlea

Bipolar osteochondral allograft transplantation of the patella and trochlea provide significant improvement in functional outcomes.

Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Femoral Trochlear Dysplasia

The osteochondral allograft transplantation surgery technique for treatment of instability resulting from trochlear dysplasia with patellofemoral chondromalacia allows patients to have a stable, pain-free knee joint and participate in activities compared to nonoperative management. Read more

Osteochondral Allograft Transplants for Large Trochlear Defects

The advantages of using the described OCA technique is that it allows chondral defects to be immediately filled with mature articular cartilage, it avoids the donor-site morbidity, and histologic analysis of OCA has shown high survivorship of the transplanted hyaline cartilage. Read more

Tibial Allograft Transfer for Medial Tibial Plateau Resurfacing

Tibial Allograft Transfer for Medial Tibial Plateau Resurfacing

This paper discusses the preparation and the implantation of the medial tibial plateau and medial meniscal allograft. The most important finding of this report is that tibial allograft transplant offers a viable solution in patients with large osteochondral defects in the setting of ligament injuries.

Long-term Results of Treating Large Posttraumatic Tibial Plateau Lesions with Fresh Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation

This paper discusses fresh osteochondral allograft transplantation as a viable option for posttraumatic tibial osteochondral defects determining that it is an excellent option that delayed the need for arthroplasty. Read more

Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation Surgery for Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus in Athletes

This paper discusses osteochondral allograft transplantation as an option for the treatment of selected athletes with large osteochondral lesions of the talus. The results of this study may help active young patients and their surgeons to better understand outcomes and options in their shared decision-making process. Read more

Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation for Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: Midterm Follow-up

Fresh OCA transplantation represents an alternative treatment option for larger osteochondral lesions of the talus with results showing that this procedure was a reasonable treatment option for large OLT. Read more

Concomitant Reverse Hill-Sachs Lesion and Posterior Humeral Avulsion of the Glenohumeral Ligament

Concomitant Reverse Hill-Sachs Lesion and Posterior Humeral Avulsion of the Glenohumeral Ligament

Given the loss of integrity in the subchondral bone that occurs with other techniques as well as the persistent damage to the articular cartilage, many have begun to favor anatomic reconstruction with osteochondral allograft.
