Why allograft reconstruction for osteochondral lesion of the talus? The osteochondral autograft transfer system seemed to work quite well


Kadakia, Anish R; Espinosa, Norman (2013). Why allograft reconstruction for osteochondral lesion of the talus? The osteochondral autograft transfer system seemed to work quite well. Foot and Ankle Clinics, 18(1):89-112.

Abstract

Osteochondral lesions of the talus (OCLT) are a challenging entity despite the advancements that have been made to treat focal deficits of articular cartilage. Both autograft and allograft reconstruction have had documented success in the treatment of OLCT. Universal availability and known chondrocyte viability makes the osteochondral autograft transfer system (OATS) an excellent option for recurrent, deep, or moderate defects. For defects with a large diameter, large cystic component, or heavily involving the shoulder of the talus, an allograft provides an excellent option. This article focuses on the efficacy and determination of the most appropriate graft reconstruction: allograft reconstruction or OATS.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
