To report the results of meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) with minimum 2-year follow-up in an active adolescent population.
MAT resulted in predictable improvements in functional outcomes in the adolescent population. The meniscal reoperation rate was low (6%), no revision MAT procedures were required, and no growth complications were reported. Chondral disease remains the primary reason for reoperation after MAT.
Level of Evidence
Level IV, therapeutic case series.
