Abstract

The authors report the successful treatment of 19 patients (mean age 10 years) with active unicameral bone cysts using a combination of percutaneous reaming and injection of a mixture of demineralized bone matrix and autologous bone marrow. Follow-up ranged from 12 to 42 months (mean 28 months). All patients were asymptomatic at the latest follow-up. Two required a second intervention to accomplish complete cyst healing. Radiographic outcome was improved in all patients according to the Neer classification at the latest follow-up. There were no significant complications related to the procedure, nor did any fracture occur after initiation of the above regimen.
