Abstract

Meniscus allograft transplantation (MAT) is an acceptable procedure for the younger patient with a meniscus-deficient knee that has not yet developed advanced arthrosis. Numerous reports on good short-term clinical outcomes are present in the literature; however, reports on failures and revision MAT are relatively scarce. We report a case of a failed lateral MAT with the slotted bone technique, revised with a bone plug technique. We also review the literature for failed MAT and analyze the mode of failure in this case.
