The aim of this study was to evaluate histopathological changes in the recipient site after transplantation of stored osteochondral allografts into articular cartilage defects in 8 dogs. In all dogs a single osteochondral allograft was transplanted into articular cartilage lesions. The results of the completed surgeries include a 12-month follow-up study. It was found that the stored osteochondral allografts were very firmly connected to the recipient tissue and no arthritis changes were noted.
