Semitendinosus Graft as Meniscal Transplant

Official Title

Autologous Semitendinosus Tendon Graft as Meniscal Transplant - a Clinical Pilot Study

Brief Summary

      Removal of meniscal tissue is described to result in poor knee function and a significant
      risk for future development of osteoarthritis. Different implants have been suggested to
      substitute a removed meniscus. Meniscal allograft transplantation is not widely available due
      to costs and availability. The semitendinosus tendon is a known graft with biological
      properties with potential to remodel and revascularize in an intraarticular environment such
      as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The objective for this study was to investigate
      whether the semitendinosus tendon graft could function as a meniscal transplant.
