Chondral defects of the patellofemoral joint remain a difficult-to-treat pathology with limited long-term results. Currently available techniques to treat large or unipolar chondral defects of the patella include autologous chondrocyte implantation and osteochondral allograft transplantation. Despite the recent advances in orthobiologic adjuncts, there is no single gold-standard surgical approach to this difficult-to-treat pathology in patients who are frequently young, active, and demanding on their bodies. We describe a technique for osteochondral allograft transplantation to the patella
for an isolated patellar chondral lesion (unipolar).
