Background: Fresh autogenous cancellous bone graft is the material of choice in reconstruction and fusion procedures in foot and ankle surgery. There are many potential donor sites for graft harvest, all with recognized minor and major complications. The proximal tibia is one such potential site and is particularly suited to foot and ankle surgery, because it is within the operative field and under tourniquet control. Methods: A retrospective review was performed of 148 procedures using bone… CONTINUE READING
