BACKGROUND It is important to restore the normal anatomy of the native meniscus in meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) for successful surgical results. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of this study was to compare the anatomic positions of the anterior horn (AH) and posterior horn (PH) between the preoperative lateral meniscus and postoperative meniscal allograft after lateral MAT using the keyhole technique. We hypothesized that the keyhole technique could restore the preoperative anatomy… CONTINUE READING
