- Editorial Commentary: Return to Sport Should Not Be Your Goal Following High Tibial Osteotomy With Concomitant Medial Meniscal Allograft TransplantationArthroscopyVol. 35Issue 11
- PreviewMeniscal allograft transplantation has been done for 3 decades as a salvage procedure for patients with painful compartments following total or near-total meniscectomy. In malaligned joints, periarticular osteotomies often are performed in conjunction with the transplantation. The goal has been to reduce pain and improve function. Early series showed that retear of transplanted menisci was common. Because many recipients of meniscal transplantations are young, the goal has been to reduce pain and restore function, and high-demand work or sporting activities have been discouraged.
