High patient satisfaction seen after osteochondral allograft transplantation
Excellent clinical outcomes were seen after fresh osteochondral allograft transplantation in patients with articular cartilage damage of the femoral trochlea, according to study results. Researchers used an osteochondral allograft (OCA) database and identified 28 patients (72.4% were male patients) treated with a fresh OCA transplant for the femoral trochlea. The mean follow-up was 7 years. Investigators used the Kaplan-Meier method to calculate allograft survivorship.
