Reconstruction using tricortical graft and plate

Tricortical graft is harvested from the iliac crest and inserted in to the defect. Great care must be taken to trim the graft so that it shares axial load with the plate.

Allograft may also be used.

After insertion of the graft, the Caspar pins are removed.
