In meniscus transplantation, allograft size mismatch causes increased contact pressures and early degeneration of the knee. The purpose of this study is to compare the accuracy and reliability of sizing the tibial plateau using three-dimensional (3-D) computed tomography (CT) scans versus plain radiographs (XR). Anteroposterior (AP) and lateral XR as well… CONTINUE READING
