Extract

The best method of reconstructing osteoarticular defects to maintain joint stability and prevent early degenerative joint disease has yet to be resolved. Buckwalter broadly divided the treatment strategies into two types 1 : those that stimulate repair or regeneration of articular cartilage and those that involve transplantation of an articular surface. However, these methods do not provide the osseous support that may be needed when bone loss has occurred in the epiphysis.
