Meniscal allografting: The three-tunnel technique

      Abstract

      This technical note describes an improved arthroscopic technique of meniscal transplantation that simplifies the surgical procedure and secures the allograft to the tibia at 3 sites. The technique is useful for both medial and lateral meniscal transplantation and has been used in our clinic for over 60 meniscal transplantation procedures.
