Abstract

This article addresses very large osteochondral lesions of the talus with an osteonecrosis overlap. Six cases are discussed where lesions were deemed too large for osteochondral autograft transfer (OATS) or autologous chondrocyte transplant (ACT). These cases were treated with bulk fresh or fresh frozen matched talus allograft transplantation. The associated literature is reviewed.
