Insertion force has been shown to significantly reduce chondrocyte viability during osteochondral allograft transplantation. How graft size influences the required insertion force and chondrocyte viability has yet to be determined. Hypothesis/Purpose: The purpose was to characterize how graft size influences insertion force requirements and chondrocyte viability during osteochondral transplantation. The hypothesis was that larger grafts would require greater force and reduce chondrocyte viability.
