The meniscus is a crucial player in knee joint homeostasis. Loss of meniscus tissue can result in early onset of clinical symptoms like pain and loss of function, and structural degeneration of the articular cartilage. In case of a symptomatic segmental defect of the medial or lateral meniscus, different innovative options using biological or synthetic scaffolds are now available to regenerate meniscuslike tissue, with the aim of allowing a satisfactory clinical improvement to patients.

Abstract

The meniscus is a crucial player in knee joint homeostasis. Loss of meniscus tissue can result in early onset of clinical symptoms like pain and loss of function, and structural degeneration of the articular cartilage. In case of a symptomatic segmental defect of the medial or lateral meniscus, different innovative options using biological or synthetic scaffolds are now available to regenerate meniscuslike tissue, with the aim of allowing a satisfactory clinical improvement to patients. However, the role of any of these procedures in terms of chondroprotection is questionable, and the overall outcomes in the long term still can be improved.
