Meniscus injury can be severely debilitating and may lead to osteoarthritis and the need for knee arthroplasty. Today’s treatment options are very limited resulting in a high unmet need. Partial replacement is only suitable as long as the meniscal rim is intact. Allograft transplantation has limitations including low donor availability.
The Trammpolin® meniscus prosthesis is an anatomically shaped, solid, nondegradable, polymer implant designed to mimic the function of the native meniscus. The Trammpolin® material is capable of maintaining a fluid film between 2 bearing surfaces, thereby providing a mechanism for lubrication of synovial joints. The Trammpolin® meniscus prostheses can provide full functionality from the moment of implantation and therefore is a potential solution for medial compartment joint pain as a result of loss of meniscus function.
Biomechanical models, computer simulations and in-vivo experiments showed similar biomechanical performance as a meniscal allograft for evaluations of tibial contact mechanics, meniscal kinematics, and knee laxity
