In our experience, meniscal allograft transplantation does have a role after a total or a significant partial meniscectomy in young to middle-aged symptomatic patients. While the quality of the meniscal tissue is crucial to the success of the operation, it is equally important to duplicate the mechanical function of the original semilunar cartilage and assure a secure peripheral attachment of the meniscal implant. The technique for peripheral meniscal suture placement described in this article permits an easier and more secure attachment of the posterior third of the implant to the joint capsule.
