Abstract

The treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) can be challenging. Currently, there exists a wide variety of treatment options to address OLTs, and the development of new, innovative surgical techniques has continued to evolve. The use of extracellular matrix cartilage allografts, or BioCartilage, is a biological agent that can be utilized as an adjunct to bone marrow stimulation. There are early promising clinical, radiographic, and histologic results. Therefore, it is prudent to understand the application of extracellular matrix cartilage allograft in the treatment of OLTs. We will provide a detailed review of the surgical technique and postoperative management, as well as guidelines for the indications for the procedure.
