  • Meniscal substitution is a fundamental procedure to prevent osteoarthritis of the knee after massive meniscectomy. Stone, Steadman and Rodkey have developed a bioreadsorbable collagen matrix (CMI) which acts as a scaffold to restore the original medial meniscal. The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate the results of CMI implantation at a follow up from a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 8 years. Eight patients (mean age 25) were evaluated at a final observation point from 6 to 8… CONTINUE READING
