Özet

Introduction: The iliac crest is the most common bone graft donor site. However, harvesting of tri or bi-cortical Mac bone graft is associated with some potentially serious complications and cosmetic deformity. We would like to present a case in which we used a new technique converting the mono-cortical iliac graft to the three-dimensional prism bone graft in order to reconstruct an acquired first metatarsal defect and to avoid the potentially serious complication of the iliac crest bone harvest.
