can i do ACI if i don't have... ??
« on: October 01, 2006, 11:50:20 PM »
Hello everybody,
Can i do a ACI surgery if don't have a lateral meniscus?   

My cartilage is badly damaged (stage III-IV) ==== few years ago I had an accident where I lost my lateral mensicus and ACL. Now i have to "fix up" my knee. Doctor said I could go for an ACL reconstrucion and to do microfracture to stimulate cartilage growth, but said i can't go for ACI.
anyone knows smthng abt that??

what about hyallograft C surgery?


thx,
Dragan

I'm getting it done and I don't have an ACL.  My doctor is going to fix my ACL while he does the ACI (in the same surgery)
