Clin Orthop Relat Res. 1983 Apr;(174):15-21.

1983 bone bank procedures.


Bone banks large enough to support an allograft program require dedicated medical personnel to manage them. A large potential donor population, extensive financial resources, and modern storage facilities are necessary. Infected donors and contamination of procured bones during storage and retrieval must be avoided at all costs. Detailed record keeping is of vital importance to clinical investigations, especially for evaluating complications. These considerations must be taken into account before embarking on an institutional bone banking program, to provide safe and satisfactory allogeneic bone for clinical use.
