Autograft OATS (Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System) is an excellent procedure for the repair of small osteochondral defects of the knee or ankle. Surgeons concerned about possible donor site morbidity caused by leaving the donor site sockets open may now use specially designed Allograft Plugs to fill the donor site and promote natural bone healing for a complete biologic repair.
Articular allografts provided through Arthrex are processed as fresh allografts with viable chondrocytes. These grafts are used in resurfacing procedures in the knee, shoulder, hip, foot and ankle. Arthrex offers numerous different fresh articular allograft types to meet the needs of the patient and surgeon.
