The menisci of the knee are C-shaped fibrocartilage disks with a cross-sectional wedge-shape that occupy the periphery of the knee joint. Although surgical treatment of the damaged meniscus is the most commonly performed orthopaedic procedure in the US, surprisingly few treatment options exist. This is in part because the structural properties of a meniscal substitute required to ensure function across a wide patient population has not been established.
