Open Meniscal Allograft Transplantation with Transosseous Suture Fixation of the Meniscal Body Significantly Decreases Meniscal Extrusion Rate Compared with Arthroscopic Technique

Purpose: To assess and compare meniscal extrusion rates after lateral “bridge-in-slot” meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) with arthroscopic versus open insertion.

Conclusions: This study identified similar absolute extrusion and significantly lower postoperative lateral meniscal extrusion rates after open MAT compared with arthroscopic MAT.
