Abstract

Among the various surgical treatment methods for osteochondral lesions of the talus, autologous osteochondral transplantation (AOT) is a useful procedure in cases of a large defect, subchondral cyst, and failed primary bone marrow stimulation procedure. Although bone marrow stimulation alone may not regenerate the damaged plate sufficiently, AOT has the advantage of being able to replace the subchondral bone plate and cartilage with a new one at a same time. Nevertheless, postoperative cyst formation or pain may persist and donor site morbidity is still a limitation of AOT.
