Abstract

The use of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) as a surgical augment to enhance biologic healing has been gaining popularity in a variety of sports medicine procedures. Due to its reliable availability from multiple sites, including the proximal tibia, proximal humerus, and anterior superior iliac spine, BMAC can be harvested at a location selected to be adjacent to the primary procedure. This Technical Note aims to highlight 3 different harvest sites for BMAC, allowing orthopaedic sports medicine surgeons to localize their harvest site based on the proximity of the planned procedure and ultimately increase efficiency.
