During the period 1989-1999, a number of patients underwent a meniscal transplantation. A few transplants were not successful. These patients form the population of this study. They all underwent a Total Knee Prosthesis (TKP) or unicompartmental knee prosthesis (UKP) after the failure of the transplants The goal of this study is to evaluate their current medical condition, to perform a survival analysis, and to determine the clinical outcome.
The clinical result will be stipulated by means of standardized questionnaires (KOOS, HSS and SF-36)and clinical examination.

- Perform a survival analysis of meniscal transplants. Failure of transplant was defined as replacement of the allograft by a knee prothesis. [ Time Frame: 20 years after surgery ]The clinical result will be stipulated by means of standardized questionnaires (KOOS, HSS and SF-36) and clinical examination.
- Clinical evaluation of the knee after TKP/UKP following a failed meniscal transplant. [ Time Frame: 20 years after surgery ]
