This procedure involves taking a segment of bone from the fibula on the same side, and placing it along with cancellous bone graft from the fibula or greater trochanter into the core which is made in the same manner as described in core decompression. Bone grafting can either be of the non-vascularized or vascularized types. In the latter the blood vessels of the fibular graft are preserved and transferred along with the graft and subsequently reattached to the blood vessels of the hip. Data has shown encouraging results.
