Structural allograft can be used to correct deformity and fill in bone voids in reconstructive surgery of the foot and ankle. The technique demonstrated by Dr. Steven K. Neufeld, of Arlington, Virginia, avoids the potential for complications associated with harvesting autograft, reduces operative time and cost, and can fill large voids that often cannot be filled with autograft. This approach should be used cautiously in high-risk patients.
