Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation

USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Osteochondral Allograft Transplantation

Osteochondral allograft transplantation is performed when the damaged cartilage is too large for an autograft. In most cases, this is an open procedure in which surgeons transplant cartilage tissue taken from a cadaver donor to damaged areas in the joint. The donor cartilage and bone tissue is larger than an autograft and can be shaped to fit the damaged area and then pressed into place.
