Osteopenia and OATS

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I have been diagnosed with osteopenia (in 2001) and osteochondritis desicans in 2003. Is OATS a good idea? With a lesion of approximately 1.5CM in diameter (probably more after debridement), how would the transplanted material bond? Would it be in jeopardy of losening and doing further damage in the future?
