Study: Radial meniscal displacement present prior to partial replacement increases after 3 months
TORONTO — Patients with polyurethane meniscal scaffolds showed clinical signs of improvement in the knee at 3 months, 12 months and 24 months postoperatively based on their Visual Analog Scale, Lysholm and International Knee Documentation Committee scores. However, investigators observed radial displacement of the scaffolds on MRI and found no correlation between radial displacement and clinical outcomes.
