Abstract

Bone grafting is often required in craniofacial reconstruction. Morselized corticocancellous bone grafts are particularly useful in applications such as filling and contouring irregular bony defects. Obtaining grafts of this consistency by traditional methods is difficult. An efficient harvesting method that can produce such grafting material in clinically useful quantities is needed. We report the use of a mechanical acetabular reamer for the purpose of harvesting a bone graft from the iliac crest.
