Abstract

Meniscal allograft transplantation is an effective treatment for the symptomatic, young, active patient with meniscal deficiency. Modern graft-preservation techniques may reduce clinical sequelae of meniscal shrinkage after transplantation. We prefer fresh-frozen nonirradiated allografts because of easier processing, lower immunogenicity, and lower cost, and on the basis of a 2-decade clinical experience with fresh-frozen meniscal allograft transplantations, we are pleased with our survivorship results.
