Surgical bone banking: the living donor.

PMID:  2020499     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Orthopaedic surgeons have recognized the value of banking previously discarded femoral heads from total joint replacement patients and using the tissue in patients requiring bone grafts. Orthopaedic nurse clinicians or orthopaedic operating room nurses are best qualified to assume the responsibilities of developing and managing a surgical bone bank. This article discusses patient-related aspects of a surgical bone banking program: donor selection, tissue acquisition and storage, and transplantation.
