Patellofemoral Reconstruction with Cartiform® Viable Osteochondral Allograft

Jeffrey Macalena, MD, (Minneapolis, MN) presents the case study of a young female who remained symptomatic following a tibial tubercle osteotomy. Rather than progressing to a patellofemoral joint arthroplasty, Dr. Macalena performed a cartilage transplant with Cartiform®* viable osteochondral allograft. He shares technical pearls and reports the 2‐year patient outcomes.
