VIDEO: ‘Look at the entire knee’ before meniscus allograft transplantation

WAILEA, Hawaii — At Orthopedics Today Hawaii 2024, Michael J. Stuart, MD, spoke about recommendations and techniques for meniscus allograft transplantation.
“The bottom line is: Preserve the meniscus whenever possible. We now have better repair techniques and good understanding of postoperative protocols. But unfortunately, not all meniscus repairs are successful and not all patients are candidates for meniscus preservation,” Stuart said.
Stuart said for patients who are candidates for meniscus transplant, orthopedic surgeons need to step back and “look at the entire knee.”
