Abstract The iliac crest provides an important donor site for cancellous, cortical, and corticocancellous bone because it has the highest concentration of osteocompetent cells, offers sufficient volume, and is readily accessible. Although iliac crest harvesting is considered a common procedure in different medical specialities, donor site morbidity is a subject that requires further discussion. Moreover, the increasing number of bone grafts being undertaken stresses the importance of donor site morbidity in surgical planning and for patient consent. This study evaluated morbidity associated with iliac crest harvesting over a 10-year period and patients' overall satisfaction.
