The elbow joint is susceptible to osteochondral injuries related to complex fracture-dislocations, as well as to conditions such as osteochondritis dissecans. In many instances, the repair of fragments or fibrocartilage-stimulating techniques are sufficient to treat the defects but, in some patients, this is either not feasible or has failed. In these situations, osteochondral autografts provide reconstructive options. The present review discusses reconstructive options for the coronoid, radial head and capitellum using autografts.
