Autologous osteochondral transplantation techniques, such as osteochondral autologous transfer system (OATS) and mosaicplasty, and osteochondral allograft transplantation aim to repair osteochondral lesions of the talus by providing a hyaline or a hyaline-like gliding surface over the affected area.
