A simple and secure method of bone graft fixation using a tack is described for reconstruction of peripheral tibial defects during cemented and uncemented total knee arthroplasties. In use science 1985, this method facilitates minimization of tibial bone resection and provides an intrinsically stable platform for tibial component seating. This method is technically simple to perform with routine primary total knee arthroplasty equipment and is especially helpful for intermediate-sized grafts, which are too small to be handled conveniently with screws.
