Elbow Reconstruction Using Cadaveric Allograft and an Elbow Endoprosthesis
Although much of the early work on bone transplantation and osteogenesis is accredited to the work of Judet, Axhausen and others , it was Sir William MacEwen  who, in 1909 in the Annals of Surgery, reported in his paper “Intra-Human Bone Grafting and Re-Implantation of Bone”, a 30-year follow-up of this particular technique. He had used wedges of bone removed from children with Ricket’s disease to reconstruct the humerus of a farmer who had been involved in a severe accident at work.
