Purpose: To determine the most successful graft fixation methods, rehabilitation protocols, outcome scores and definitions of failure across existing literature for Meniscal Allograft Transplantation (MAT).
Take Away: There is evidence that MAT provides pain relief, improves function and has good reported results in mid- and long-term studies. Presently there is not enough data to support one technique of MAT over another.
