PURPOSE:The purpose of this study is to present a systematic review of the literature regarding the use of fresh bulk osteochondralallograft transfer for treatment of large osteochondral lesions of the talus (OCLT) in an effort to characterize the functional outcomes, complications, and reoperation rates.
CONCLUSIONS:Fresh bulk allograft transplantation can substantially improve functional status as well as effectively prevent or delay the eventual need for ankle arthrodesis or replacement. However, patients must be carefully selected and counseled on the morbidity of the procedure as well as the high incidence of clinical failure (13%) and need for reoperation (25%) and revision surgery (8.8%).
LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:Level IV, systematic review of Level IV studies.
