Proper patient selection and pre-surgical planning are key to a successful meniscal allograft transplantation. The patient's examination and history often are consistent post-meniscectomy syndrome. When rehabilitation efforts fail and arthroscopy reveals deficient medial meniscus, meniscal allograft transplantation is a reasonable and effective option for therapy. There is still debate on the proper treatment of post-meniscectomy syndrome, and the role of prophylactic meniscal allograft transplantation is still controversial. Understanding mechanical complications and comorbidities will assist in proper surgical planning. The case below discusses techniques and management of patients with post-meniscectomy syndrome.
