Introduction. Clinical management of non-union of long bone fractures and segnmental bone defect is a challange for orthopaedici surgeons. The use of autologous bone graft (ABG) in always considered the gold standar treatment. Traditional technique for arvesting ABG from iliac crest usually involve several complications ,particularly at the donor site. The Reamer-Irrigator-Aspiration (RIA) in an intramedullaty reamong system that generates a large volume of calellous bone m,aterial in a single steep reaming process; this bone material can be collected and potentially used as an ABG source: Our interest is to compare the complication associated with the standard technique of harvesting from iliac crest with those innovative RIA harvesting device. Materials and methods A database of 70 patients with long bone non-unions was studied. The patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical harvesting technique used: RIA system ABG (35 patients) and iliac crest ABG (35 patients). Results At the 12-month follow-up, pain at the donor site was reported in no patients in the RIA system ABG group and five of 35 patients (14.28%) in the iliac crest ABG group. Local infections at the donor site were found in no patients in the RIA system ABG group compared with five patients (14.28%) in the iliac crest ABG group. There were no fractures in the RIA system ABG group and one case (2.85%) of anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) dislocation in the iliac crest ABG group. No systemic infections were detected in either group. Discussion We analysed the scientific literature on the use of RIA technique to collect ABG for use in patients with anthropic-oligotrophic non-unions, with a focus on the complications associated with this technique. Conclusion RIA bone graft for the treatment of non-unions and segmental bone defect of long bones seems to be a safe and efficient procedure with low donor site morbidity.
