Juvenile Particulate Osteochondral Allograft for Treatment of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus: Detection of Altered Repair Tissue Biochemical…

During the previous 2 decades, numerous surgical procedures have become available to treat osteochondral lesions of the talus. The objective of the present study was to use 7 Tesla (7T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to quantify and compare T2 values (a marker of collagen architecture) of native tibiotalar cartilage and cartilage repair tissue in patients treated with a juvenile particulate allograft for osteochondral lesions of the talus.
