Two women (24 and 27 years old) noted pain in the affected ankle of several years' duration. Radiography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed osteochondral lesions of the talus in both patients. The lesion sites measured 1.3 × 1.0 × 0.4 cm (0.52 cm(3)) and 2.0 × 1.9 × 0.5 cm (1.9 cm(3)). Each patient received a medial malleolar osteotomy with mosaicplasty. Donor plugs were obtained from the ipsilateral knee in both patients. Surgery was performed successfully in both patients without complications. At 2-year follow-up, both patients had recovered good ankle function, with no donor site morbidity. American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society ankle/hindfoot scores improved in the affected ankles from 16 to 84 in case 1 and from 43 to 87 in case 2. Mosaicplasty is effective in treating stage III or IV osteochondral lesions of the talus and results in good-to-excellent recovery of function.
