Biomaterials for meniscus and cartilage in knee surgery: state of the art.

The literature was reviewed over the last 5 years on clinically used meniscus and cartilage repair biomaterials, such as Collagen Meniscal Implant, Actifit, NUsurface, TruFit, Agili-C and MaioRegen. There are clinical advantages for these biomaterials and the application of these treatment options should be considered individually. Standardised evaluation protocols are needed for biological and mechanical assessment and comparison between different scaffolds, and long-term randomised independent clinical trials with large study numbers are needed to provide more insight into the use of these biomaterials. Surgeons should become familiar and stay up to date with evolving repair options to improve their armamentarium for meniscal and cartilage defects.
