We have treated osteochondral lesions of the talus using cortical bone pegs. We examined 27 ankles (27 patients) after a mean follow-up of 7.0 years (2 to 18.8). The mean age of the patients was 27.8 years (12 to 62). An unstable osteochondral fragment or osteosclerotic changes in the bed of the talus were regarded as indications for the procedure. The clinical results were good in 24 ankles (89%) and fair in three (11%); none had a poor result. There was also radiological improvement in 24 ankles. Repair of the articular surface and stability of the lesion can be achieved even in unstable chronic lesions.
