Abstract

Meniscal replacement to treat early osteoarthritis of the knee after meniscectomy may be accompanied by other surgical procedures to treat factors predisposing to a negative intervention outcome. Overload of the medial compartment in slight varus can be reduced by applying the new KineSpring system, which can promote the best possible outcome of a biodegradable meniscal scaffold implantation, without producing biomechanical and anatomical alterations of the joint. This is the first case report on the combination of these hi-tech and bio-tech techniques.
