Meniscus scaffold, meniscus rehabilitation, meniscus implant

Cathal J Moran, Daniel P Withers, Peter R Kurzweil, Peter C Verdonk
Meniscal tears are common injuries often treated by partial meniscectomy. This may result in altered joint contact mechanics which in turn may lead to worsening symptoms and an increased risk of osteoarthritis. Meniscal scaffolds have been proposed as a treatment option aimed at reducing symptoms while also potentially reducing progression of degenerative change. There are 2 scaffolds available for clinical use at the present time; Collagen Meniscus Implant and Actifit. Medium-term to long-term data (4.9 to 11...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and structural outcomes after resorbable collagen meniscus scaffold implantation through a systematic review of the published literature. METHODS: A systematic search of both the PubMed and Embase databases was undertaken to identify all studies that reported clinical and/or structural outcomes after resorbable collagen meniscus scaffold implantation for the treatment of defects involving either the medial or lateral meniscus...

There are two scaffold products designed for meniscal reconstruction or substitution of partial meniscal defects that are currently available in the Europe: the collagen meniscal implant (CMI; Ivy Sports Medicine, Gräfelfing, Germany) and the polymer scaffold (PS; Actifit, Orteq Bioengineering, London, United Kingdom). The CMI has demonstrated improved clinical outcomes compared with baseline in patients with chronic postmeniscectomy symptoms with follow-up ranging from 5 to more than 10 years. There are also several comparative studies that report improved clinical scores in patients with chronic medial meniscus symptoms treated with CMI versus repeat partial meniscectomy, and a lower reoperation rate...
