We present the case of a 30-year-old woman who was referred with an established tibial non-union with a bone defect following a spiral fracture of the tibia. Initial attempts at union with intramedullary fixation and then autograft were unsuccessful. We achieved union by debriding the fibrous tissue and packing the defect with Bone Morphogenetic Protein 7 (Osigraft, Stryker, UK) and a tricalcium phosphate bone void filler (Calstrux, Stryker, UK). We did not use any additional surgical fixation and the patient was supported in an aircast boot.
