BACKGROUND: Regulatory concerns and the popularity of fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation have led to a need for prolonged viable storage of osteochondral grafts. Tissue culture media allow a longer storage time but lead to chondrocyte death within the tissue. The long-term clinical consequence of prolonged storage is unknown. HYPOTHESIS: Patients transplanted with OCAs with a shorter storage time would have lower failure rates and better clinical outcomes than those transplanted with OCAs with prolonged storage...

Objective To evaluate the outcome of patients who have undergone simultaneous osteotomy and osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation. Our hypothesis is that use of high tibial osteotomy and fresh OCA in a combined procedure is safe and effective without increasing morbidity in comparison to OCA alone. Design A case series of 17 patients underwent tibial osteotomy and simultaneous OCA during a single surgery. Osteotomy was indicated when axial alignment was within the affected compartment. Patients had a minimum of 2 years of follow-up after surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation is generally effective for treating large cartilage lesions. Cleansing OCA subchondral bone to remove donor marrow elements is typically performed with pulsed lavage. However, the effects of clinical and experimental parameters on OCA marrow removal by pulsed lavage are unknown. The aim of the current study was to determine the effects on marrow cleansing in human osteochondral cores (OCs) of (1) lavage duration, (2) lavage flow intensity, and (3) OC sample type and storage condition...

Osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) are an increasingly implicated cause of ankle pain and instability. Several treatment methods exist with varying clinical outcomes. Due in part to successful osteochondral allografting (OCA) in other joints, such as the knee and shoulder, OCA has gained popularity as a treatment option, especially in the setting of large lesions. The clinical outcomes of talar OCA have been inconsistent relative to the positive results observed in other joints. Current literature regarding OCA failure focuses mainly on 3 factors: the effect of graft storage conditions on chondrocyte viability, graft/lesion size, and operative technique...

An important consideration for the successful use of fresh osteochondral allografts for the patellofemoral joint is selection of appropriately sized donor allografts. This is particularly challenging for matching grafts to the patella because of the substantial variability in articular contour that exists. At present, selection of donor patellae is based only on the width of the proximal tibia, with no established means of quantifying basic patellar size, facet configuration, or articular contour. We hypothesized that using a combination of standard radiographic measurements to generate an accurate profile of the recipients native patella would result in a more accurate donor graft...

BACKGROUND: The risk factors for patellofemoral joint instability include laxity of medial patellar restraints, abnormal limb geometry, femoral and tibial malrotation, patella alta, and trochlear dysplasia. Femoral trochlear dysplasia is characterized by a hypoplastic or shallow trochlear groove. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 31-year-old female with trochlear dysplasia and recurrent patella dislocations, laxity of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), and high-grade chondromalacia of the trochlea and the patella...

BACKGROUND: Conventional osteochondral allograft (OCA) matching, requiring orthotopic, size-matched condyles, and narrow surgical time windows often prohibit timely transplantation. HYPOTHESIS: The femoral condyle radius of curvature (RoC) is an appropriate, isolated criterion for donor-host matching in fresh OCAs, potentially enhancing matching efficiency when compared with conventional matching techniques. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study...

BACKGROUND: Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the knee can be difficult to treat. Cartilage restoration techniques are often indicated when the lesion or fragment cannot be salvaged and the patient remains symptomatic. Fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation can restore both bone and cartilage defects characteristic of OCD. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that osteochondral allografting is a successful method for treating OCD of the knee. STUDY DESIGN: Case series; Level of evidence, 4...

OBJECTIVE: To standardize and to develop a fresh osteochondral allograft protocol of procurement, processing and surgical utilization in Brazil. This study describes the steps recommended to make fresh osteochondral allografts a viable treatment option in a country without previous fresh allograft availability. DESIGN: The process involves regulatory process modification, developing and establishing procurement, and processing and surgical protocols. RESULTS: Legislation: Fresh osteochondral allografts were not feasible in Brazil until 2009 because the law prohibited preservation of fresh grafts at tissue banks...

BACKGROUND: Osteochondral autografts and allografts have been widely used in the treatment of isolated grade 4 articular cartilage lesions of the knee. However, there is a paucity of literature regarding the basic science investigating the direct comparison between fresh osteochondral allografts to autografts. HYPOTHESIS: At 12 months, fresh osteochondral allografts are equal to autografts with respect to function, bony incorporation into host bone, and chondrocyte viability...

BACKGROUND: Fresh osteochondral allografting of the talus is one treatment option for large chondral defects. Following positive early term results, failure rates of up to 35% have been reported. A retrieval study was performed to characterize failed talar allografts. METHODS: Failed fresh osteochondral allografts of the talus were retrieved on revision. Cases of deep infection were excluded. After tissue fixation, samples were decalcified, embedded, and stained with Safranin-O/Fast Green, osteocalcin, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), CD4, CD8, and CD68...

BACKGROUND: Inadvertent contamination of osteochondral (OC) autografts during harvesting and preparation can lead to significant complications and can cause the operating team to weigh the infection risk after reimplantation against discarding the OC fragment. The most commonly reported contamination mechanism is the accidental dropping of an OC fragment; however, associated contamination levels remain unclear. The rate and level of contamination during standard harvesting and preparation are also unknown...
