Osteochondral lesions of the talus remain a challenging pathologic entity facing orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeons. Although multiple treatment options exist, there is limited evidence supporting one technique over another. The ultimate goal of surgical intervention is to achieve lesion infill with tissue properties that best mimic those of hyaline articular cartilage. Restoring the anatomic surface of the talus may provide long-term clinical success and improve function. Augmentation of bone marrow stimulation with extracellular matrix cartilage allograft aims to achieve this goal.
