Several surgical methods exist for the treatment of osteochondral lesions of the femoral head. They include osteochondral allograft transfer, femoral osteotomy, microfracture, autologous chondrocyte implantation, and hip arthroplasty. Mosaicplasty is a surgical method in which cylindrical plugs of bone and cartilage are transferred from a donor site to tunnels drilled into the bone and cartilage defects. This paper discusses the use of mosaicplasty by a direct anterior approach without dislocation in the treatment of an acute femoral head osteochondral impaction in a young patient.
Key words: Hip arthroplasty / Mosaicplasty / Femoral head fracture / direct anterior approach / OATS
