© 2022 The AuthorsA concern regarding osteochondral autograft transfer for chondral defects is donor-site morbidity of the knee, the most common source of the autograft. To avoid the drawbacks of osteochondral autograft transfer, a cylindrical osteoperiosteal graft harvested from the iliac crest covered by a same-sized cylinder of hyaluronic acid–based polymer scaffold pretreated with bone marrow aspirate concentrate and transferred to the chondral defect recipient site in the exact size for restoration of the subchondral bone and the articular cartilage.
