Articular defects are a major problem with few effective treatment options. Osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation can be an effective treatment; however, lack of OCA bone integration can cause failure. This controlled laboratory study was designed to compare clinically applicable methods for marrow element removal and enhanced delivery of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMC) to OCA bone. We hypothesized that compressed carbon dioxide (CO2 ) treatment of OCA bone would result in significantly better marrow element removal, significantly more retention and distribution of viable osteoprogenitor cells, and significantly higher osteoinductive protein elution from OCAs compared with other preimplantation treatments...

BACKGROUND: Cartilage repair algorithms use lesion size to choose surgical techniques when selecting a cartilage repair procedure. The association of fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) size with graft survivorship and subjective patient outcomes is still unknown. PURPOSE: To determine if lesion size (absolute or relative) affects outcomes after OCA transplantation. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: The study included 156 knees in 143 patients who underwent OCA transplantation from 1998 to 2014 for isolated femoral condyle lesions...

Isolated, full-thickness articular cartilage lesions of the glenohumeral joint can cause pain, mechanical symptoms, and impaired function. Reports on operative management of these injuries with arthroscopic techniques, such as marrow stimulation, have shown improvement in patient symptoms. In cases where the subchondral bone is involved, osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation has shown positive results for contained, focal cartilage defects. The technique for OCA transplantation to treat Hill-Sachs lesions has been reported in detail, and there are multiple case series reporting on the outcomes of OCA used for this purpose...

Symptomatic patellofemoral chondral lesions are a challenging clinical entity, as these defects may result from persistent lateral patellar maltracking or repetitive microtrauma. Anteromedializing tibial tubercle osteotomy has been shown to be an effective strategy for primary and adjunctive treatment of focal or diffuse patellofemoral disease to improve the biomechanical loading environment. Similarly, osteochondral allograft transplantation has proven efficacy in physiologically young, high-demand patients with condylar or patellofemoral lesions, particularly without early arthritic progression...

BACKGROUND: Insertion force has been shown to significantly reduce chondrocyte viability during osteochondral allograft transplantation. How graft size influences the required insertion force and chondrocyte viability has yet to be determined. Hypothesis/Purpose: The purpose was to characterize how graft size influences insertion force requirements and chondrocyte viability during osteochondral transplantation. The hypothesis was that larger grafts would require greater force and reduce chondrocyte viability...

INTRODUCTION: Symptomatic talar osteochondral lesions are about 50% refractory to conservative treatment requiring a surgical solution. In the case of large chronic lesions, the use of bone graft taken from tissue bank is an alternative that enables to fill the defect without causing donor site morbidity. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eight patients treated with talar osteochondral allograft in lesions greater than 20mm in diameter were analyzed - 4 males and 4 females aging 39...

For larger lesions (>2.5-cm2 ), clinical evidence and practice have shown that fresh osteochondral allograft have good durability, with 88% return to sport and greater than 75% 10-year survival rates for treatment of large femoral condyle lesions. That said, the use of fresh osteochondral allografts in clinical practice is limited by the availability of acceptable donor tissues for eligible patients in a timely fashion. Significant diminution of chondrocyte viability and density occurs during the preservation and storage period...

Cartilage defects in adult patients are so far incurable. Fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation is based on the insertion of mature, living, mechanically sound hyaline cartilage into an osteochondral defect where it undergoes osseointegration. Intact hyaline cartilage of OCA does not cause immune reactions in the recipient. Many reports show that small OCA have good osseointegration and show good long-term results. These observations have been incorporated into the development of the fresh large (> 10 cm(2)) osteochondral shell allograft transplantation (FLOCSAT) concept, which is based on the following principles: 1) the thickness of the osseous layer should be kept as thin as possible (target < 6-8 mm) so that the transplant remains stable and fixable...

Cartilage defects in adult patients do not heal well. Fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation is based on mature, living, mechanically sound hyaline cartilage attached to a bone interface, which is brought into an osteochondral defect, where it becomes osseointegrated. According to current knowledge, intact hyaline cartilage tissue is immune privileged and does not, in contrast to bone, meniscus or ligaments, cause an immune reaction. The technique has the unique advantage of transplanting viable, mature and mechanically stable hyaline cartilage into the affected area...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK) is a clinical entity identified by acute knee pain usually associated with joint effusion, with radiographic findings of a radiolucent defect on the weightbearing area of the femoral condyle. Conservative treatment is initially undertaken; however, surgical procedures are often necessary. Historically, surgical options have included core decompression, cartilage repair, high tibial osteotomy, or joint arthroplasty. Few studies in the literature have reported the use of fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) for the treatment of SONK lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Articular cartilage lesions of the hip are difficult to effectively treat. Osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantation in the knee has been associated with long-term success, but OCA for the hip has not been extensively studied. Here, we present the clinical and radiological outcomes from a cohort of 10 patients treated with fresh OCA transplants for large osteochondral defects of the femoral head and/or acetabulum. METHODS: 10 patients who had undergone osteochondral allograft transplantation of the femoral head and/or acetabulum at our institution between 2013 and 2016 were identified from our Institutional Review Board-approved registry...

BACKGROUND: The clinical outcome of fresh allogeneic osteochondral allografts (OCA) is greatly dependent on the number of viable chondrocytes at the time of implantation. The selection and preparation of a suitable recipient can be very time-consuming and the number of tissue donors is greatly limited; therefore, the preservation of high allograft viability before transplantation is a focal point of current research. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this review is to give an overview of established storage strategies for OCA and to serve as a decision-making aid for German clinics in the choice of a suitable storage strategy...

Chronic posterior glenohumeral joint instability can be a challenging clinical entity for patients and surgeons alike. In the setting of a posterior dislocation, a large anterior humeral impaction injury (reverse Hill-Sachs [HS]) may occur, leading to engagement of the humerus with the posterior glenoid bone, especially during internal rotation of the joint. A reverse HS is especially debilitating because of the significant portion of affected humeral head cartilage, and is made worse in the setting of ligamentous disruption such as a posterior humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament (HAGL) lesions...

BACKGROUND: The biggest obstacle to overcome for routine treatment of various pathologies with fresh osteochondral allograft is the availability of tissue for transplantation. Large fresh osteochondral allografts are usually harvested from organ donors, but in contrast to organs, tissues can be procured after cardiac arrest. OBJECTIVE: Medical staff as well the general public are much less aware of the possibilities and requirements of tissue donation compared to organ donation...

BACKGROUND: Fresh osteochondral allografts (OCAs) are limited in availability. The Missouri Osteochondral Allograft Preservation System (MOPS) has been reported to effectively preserve OCAs twice as long as current tissue bank protocols in preclinical studies. HYPOTHESIS: The viable chondrocyte density (VCD) in OCAs preserved for up to 70 days using the MOPS will not be significantly different from day 0, and the VCD in MOPS-preserved OCAs will be significantly higher than for standard tissue bank preservation...

Objective This study aimed to compare standard saline lavage to combination saline and high-pressure carbon dioxide (CO2) lavage in removing marrow elements from osteochondral allografts. Design Six fresh hemicondyles were obtained. Three osteochondral allograft plugs (15-mm diameter, 6-mm depth) were harvested from each hemicondyle and randomized to 1 of 3 treatment arms: A, no lavage; B, 1 L standard saline lavage; C, simultaneous saline (1 L) and 1-minute high-pressure CO2 lavage. After hematoxylin and eosin staining, a "percentage fill" of remaining marrow elements was calculated for each overall sample and then repeated in 3 distinct compartments for each sample based on depth from surface: 1, deepest third; 2, middle third; and 3, most superficial third...

BACKGROUND: Transplantation of fresh osteochondral allografts (OCAs) is an attractive treatment option for symptomatic articular cartilage lesions in young, healthy patients. Because the lack of OCA bone integration can be a cause of treatment failure, methods for speeding and enhancing OCA bone integration to mitigate this potential complication are highly desirable. PURPOSE: To determine if autogenous bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMC) treatment of large femoral condylar OCAs would be associated with superior radiographic OCA bone integration compared with nontreated allografts during the critical first 6 months after surgery...

With increasing shoulder instability events, the likelihood of a bony lesion of the glenoid and/or humeral head rises. Although bone loss of either the glenoid or humeral head may result in recurrent instability, bipolar lesions have been shown, in particular, to result in a negative and additive effect on glenohumeral stability. In the case of a bipolar lesion comprising severe glenoid bone loss and an engaging, "off-track" Hill-Sachs lesion, the bony foundation of the glenohumeral joint is compromised and bony augmentation is necessary...
