Is OATs procedure something that can be revised?
« on: May 18, 2018, 07:03:20 PM »
I had a failed ACI plus meniscus graft, followed by OATS (one graft failed, meniscus still OK). I'm 35 and active (not now obviously). Was told Im not a candidate by arthroplasty but also told by 2 different surgeons that OATs something that is not revised. Is that the case or are there any surgeons out there who do revisions?

Sorry in advance for replying when I don't know the answer, but as an 111mth out meniscus transplant + OATS patient, I'm curious about your experience.

Which meniscus was transplanted and how large was the OATS site?
Partial Lateral Meniscectomy (2/3 removed), pristine articular cartilage...2013
Return to impact sport, continual responsive swelling ever since

What now? Allograft / brace / nothing?
