Brief Summary:

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.
