An incongruity between instrument and articular surfaces in osteochondral transfer (OCT) results in unevenly distributed impact forces exerted on the cartilage which may cause a loss of functional chondrocytes. We tested whether a plane instead of a concave design of the punch of an osteotome can reduce these cartilage damages.
