Partial meniscus substitution with a polyurethane scaffold does not improve outcome after an open-wedge high tibial osteotomy.

Patients with symptomatic varus knees were treated with open-wedge
high tibial osteotomies, and a meniscectomy was improved more at short-term
follow-up in most of the evaluated functional scores than those patients with
concomitant implantation of a medial Actifit(®) implant. However, there was no
difference in terms of patient satisfaction with the procedure. Based on the
short-term functional results of this study, no data were provided to support
medial meniscal substitution with a polyurethane scaffold when an open-wedge high
tibial osteotomy is being performed.
