Description

The use of fresh-frozen osteochondral allografts has been reported for the treatment of talar fractures, osteochondral lesions, and tumors of the calcaneus. Currently, we are unaware of any reports in the literature addressing the use of fresh-frozen osteochondral allograft for the treatment of giant cell tumors in the talus. We report our attempt to eradicate an aggressive giant cell tumor of the talus while minimizing morbidity and loss of function via reconstruction with a fresh-frozen osteochondral allograft. This is the first report in the literature to propose such a treatment option for giant cell tumors in the talus. The patient was informed that a report of this case would be submitted for publication.
