Lateral meniscus allograft transplantation is performed in predominantly young, active patients and is an option to stabilize the joint in lateral meniscus-deficient patients after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The lateral meniscus functions as an important restraint to anterior tibial translation, and meniscal transplant in such a patient may improve survivability of the graft in addition to preserving the patient's articular cartilage in the long term. A ligamentous extra-articular tenodesis procedure may be performed simultaneously to augment rotational stability of the joint, particularly in a patient with underlying ligamentous hyperlaxity.
