Meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) is becoming a common procedure in Orthopedic departments worldwide. This procedure has demonstrated good and excellent results in terms of pain relief, improvement in clinical and functional outcomes, return to sports, and patient’s satisfaction. However, MAT is not a universally accepted procedure due to its questionable chondroprotective effects and the relatively high rate of complications and/or reoperations. The present short review summarizes the principal indications, contraindications, outcomes, and complications. Also, it covers several controversial topics like graft preservation, graft sizing, graft fixation, results in MAT associated with concomitant procedures, and the role of MAT in the prevention of knee osteoarthritis.
