Özet

Purpose Subchondral perfusion of osteochondral grafts has been shown to be important in preventing long-term cartilage degeneration. In carpal reconstruction, subchondral perfusion from the graft bed is limited. This study's purpose was to compare the histological characteristics of cartilage in osteochondral grafts supported by synovial imbibition alone to cartilage of vascularized osteochondral flaps that have both synovial and vascular pedicle perfusion.
