Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and concentrated bone marrow aspirate (CBMA) have the potential to improve the quality of cartilage repair in osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT). In this review, we describe the basic science and clinical evidence that has been published on the topic of PRP and CBMA on 2 commonly used surgical techniques for the treatment of OLT: bone marrow stimulation and osteochondral autograft transfer.
