Advances have been made in the treatment for osteochondral defects of the talus, but these injuries continue to be a challenge for foot and ankle surgeons. We present an arthroscopically assisted technique that uses an allogenic cartilage graft in treating an osteochondral lesion of the medial dome of the talus. A brief discussion on current surgical options for osteochondral defects of the talus is also provided.
