Abstract

Visualization of the three-dimensional nature of a Hill-Sachs lesion during osteoarticular allografting via an anterior approach is challenging and makes fashioning of an appropriately sized shape-matched graft difficult. A technique using bone wax to aid in templating the size and shape of the Hill-Sachs lesion for grafting is described.
