Autogenous cancellous bone was evaluated as a material to repair large osteochondral defects in 20 adult mongrel dogs. In one knee, the bone graft was used to fill an osteochondral cylindrical defect (10 mm diameter x 10 mm deep) created in the femoral trochlea. A similar lesion was created in the contralateral knee but was left untreated for spontaneous healing. Four animals were killed at each of five periods (2, 4, 8, 12, and 24 weeks), and the healing response of the defects was evaluated… CONTINUE READING
