Abstract

The efficacy of meniscus allograft transplantation (MAT) for the meniscus-deficient knee has been widely recognized as being excellent in terms of pain relief and functional improvement. Lateral MAT is usually performed with the bone bridge technique that uses a bone bridge connecting the anterior and posterior horns of an allograft. The slot position for the meniscal graft insertion is of great importance with the bone bridge technique, especially in the key-hole method. The purpose of this Technical Note is to describe lateral MAT using the key-hole technique in which an allograft with a bone bridge carved to accommodate the key-hole-shaped slot is properly secured to the slot.
