Abstract

This is a retrospective review of 23 tibial nonunions treated either by bone marrow graft or cortico-cancellous grafts. No fixation devices were used. 11 patients had conventional bone grafts from the lilac crest. All united at an average time of 4.9 months. 12 patients had bone marrow grafts and 10 united at an average time of 5.4 months. Bone marrow graft is minimally invasive. It is easy to perform, reduces operating and hospitalization time and avoids the complications at both the donor and recipient sites besides producing comparable results.
