El-Rashidy H, Villacis D, Omar I, Kelikian AS. Bruns et al. In patients with a large lesion or after a failure of previous bone marrow stimulation, biologic restoration techniques including the use of particulate juvenile cartilage techniques, autogenous chondrocyte implantation, and osteochondral autograft or allograft transplantation may have role. J Bone Joint Surg Br 1982; 64(4): 494-7. Am J Sports Med 2010; 38(6): 1259-71. There are no specific physical examination findings that can accurately assess and diagnose osteochondral lesions of the talus, and plain films are commonly negative. Arthroscopic treatment of transchondral talar dome fractures: a long-term follow-up study. who studies 20 patients. Am J Sports Med 2013; 41(1): 126-33. Post-operative radiography demonstrated lucencies at the graft-host interface in five patients, but there was no graft failure [134]. They also reported the improvement of functional outcomes in patients who had failed primary microfracture and underwent repeated microfracture in 17 patients (mean improvement of AOFAS scores was 17.2 points) [50]. A novel computer navigation system for retrograde drilling of osteochondral lesions. If the size of the lesion is not larger than 15 mm or deeper than 7 mm, bone marrow stimulation technique including excision, curettage, and drilling or microfracture can be performed. If an osteochondral lesion of the talar dome is present, further evaluation with CT is appropriate to evaluate the location, size, and displacement of the bone fragment. They reported significant pain relief (mean VAS was 6/10 pre-operatively and improved to 1/10 post-operatively) and mean post-operative AOFAS scores were 84 at final follow-up.

It can accurately depict the grade of the lesions, except for early lesions, as these are defined by abnormalities in the articular cartilage which is not seen on CT [23]. The overall standing of a journal is in a way, reflective of the quality of its Editor(s) and Editorial Board and its members. Autogenous bone grafting for the treatment of talar dome lesions 2000. demonstrated that MRI guidance has 100 percent accuracy, is safe, and technically feasible with no complications for retrograde drilling of OLTs [95].
