Several techniques of autograft bone harvesting have been described in the Orthopaedic literature. These include iliac crest bone graft which is considered to be the gold standard and the traditional technique carried out by many Orthopaedic surgeons. This is because autograft is osteoinductive, osteoconductive as well as osteogenic, and can be harvested from different sites in different forms and sizes. Other sources include fibula graft (vascularised and non-vascularised), rib, skull, femoral shafts, vascularised medial femoral condyle, calcaneus, osteophytes, proximal or distal tibia, distal radius, greater trochanter, and more recently reamed autogenous bone graft using the Reamer Irrigator Aspiration technique as well as the Poly Methyl Methacrylate membrane-induced technique and tissue engineered biomaterials.
