Abstract
We reviewed retrospectively 11 patients who had been treated surgically by open autologous osteochondral grafting for symptomatic chondral or osteochondral defects of the dome of the talus between 1996 and 1999. The mean ages of the eight men and three women were 34.2 and 25.9 years, respectively, with a mean time to follow-up of 24 months. The results of functional outcome were prospectively obtained using the MODEMS AAOS foot and ankle follow-up questionnaire, the AOFAS ankle-hindfoot scale and the Hannover scores for the ankle. The grafts were harvested from the ipsilateral knee. Good to excellent results were obtained for the ankle without adverse effects on the knee. We believe that autologous osteochondral grafting should be considered for the patient with a symptomatic osteochondral defect of the talus.
