Abstract

The demand for meniscus replacement arises when the cruciate ligament substitute material does not have protection for sufficient and permanent stabilization owing to the lack of a breaking action of the inner meniscus dorsal horn in the absence of the anterior cruciate ligament and after medial meniscectomy. Consecutive loosening of the cruciate ligament replacement is the logical consequence. Preliminary animal experiments were carried out in terms of these clinical criteria.
