Masquelet technique or induced membrane technique has gained wide popularity and is now widely accepted as a simple and effective technique for the reconstruction of segmental bone defects. The technique is founded on the concept that the enclosed foreign body induces a tissue response, which leads to the formation of a surrounding biological active membrane termed as “induced membrane.” The technique was initially described for bone loss resulting from septic nonunion of the leg, and it has been extended to all long bone segments, including the clavicle, whatever may be the etiology of the bone defect. In this review, we describe the current overview of the Masquelet technique over the last decade.
