      It's really hard to tell from the outside.
      There's some things that are in the person's control and some things are your genetics.
      Imagine Shaq, a giant who played at 350+ pounds for years, who never got really severe injuries vs Sean Livingston, a skinny tall guard who was quite young when he went up for a rebound and his knee tore apart when he landed. He needed complicated surgeries and was never the same.

    I'm a professor in a medical school. Important detail: cartilage transplants, unlike organ transplants, do not require lifetime immunosuppressant therapy. There are not cells in cartilage, so your body will not attack them. Similar to cornea transplants. In contrast, organ transplants require a serious load of medications for life.

    • @armaletalia3254
      @armaletalia3254 หลายเดือนก่อน +25

      “There are not cells in cartilage, so your body will not attack them” - There are cells in cartilage called chondrocytes.
      With respect to cornea transplants, per AAO, “All cornea transplant patients use a topical corticosteroid as local anti-rejection treatment. This may be for a long period of time or may be stopped after a year or more depending on the type of transplant performed. In high-risk cornea transplant cases, oral immune suppression therapy may be added to the topical therapy.”

    • @jcliu
      @jcliu หลายเดือนก่อน

      @@armaletalia3254 It’s not that there are no cells in cartilage; it’s that cartilage cells are (relatively) isolated from immune system cells:
      “Cartilage is an ‘immunoprivileged’ site in the body. Immunoprivileged means without lymphatic or blood vessels, so it’s isolated from the immune system and extremely unlikely to cause rejection. Cartilage transplant patients do not need to take immunosuppressive drugs (which are typically required to prevent rejection in other types of organ transplants).”
      Now, that’s from a surgeons’ website so YMMV. The classical immunoprivileged organs are eyes, testes, and placenta/fetus (which the mother’s immune system does not reject despite being a genetically distinct organism). Cartilage is newer, and maybe less definitively, on the list. But, i think the truth is all organs are on a spectrum of “privilege” when it comes to transplants: Yes, some minority of cornea and cartilage transplants may require long doses of immunosuppression, but the risks of rejection are on the other other end of the scale compared to hearts or kidneys, which are located at the core of the body, flooded with blood and lymph going everywhere.

      I may have misunderstood your statement but I know of no body parts without cells. Except for hair nails that are basically keratinocytes that once were cells.
      So for the meniscus, also cartilage read the following and kindly explain what you mean.
      “Chondrocytes. The chondrocyte is the resident cell type in articular cartilage. Chondrocytes are highly specialized, metabolically active cells that play a unique role in the development, maintenance, and repair of the ECM.

    I had a menisectomy when I was 13 years old (orthopedic surgeon said my meniscus was so shot it wasn’t reparable). On some of my follow ups he’d always mention that meniscus transplants were an option especially since there was a higher chance of getting knee arthritis at a younger age but had a fairly high failure rate. Since then I’ve been super intrigued about them. This video was extremely interesting to me! Thanks for posting! It’s been 12 years since the menisectomy and my knee for the most part still feels great! I work out my quads and other leg muscles at the gym a lot and from my latest x rays/mris there’s been very little cartilage degeneration at all!

    Worth adding severe meniscus injuries present a huge treatment gap in orthopedic medicine. I was hopeful the Nusurface Implants would solve this and honestly I think they are pretty good. But they couldn’t crack how to make a lateral meniscus implant due to anatomy and biomechanics . To the best of my knowledge they gave up on collagen scaffold graphs because they only succeeded like 20% of the time and you need to have remaining tissue to anchor it. MAT procedures have been successful in decreasing pain post meniscectomy but the data on joint preservation is unclear. Not to mention the joint space required. I have heard of people having osteotomies to restore the joint space for a implant. At the end of the day though if you already have defects of the articulate cartilage you are putting a rough surface on a smooth one.

Do they need to take anti-rejection-medication like other transplant recipients? The meniscus by itself - well matched - might be tolerated better since there is no blood supply to it. But how long does it last? What about that knee in 10, 20, 40 years? It's a heart breaking ...

      No…. It’s no cells in the meniscus so his body won’t attack it….Now organ transplants like liver, heart, etc you’ll have to take medicine for life…

    Yikes, I feel for Lonzo. I’ve had a torn meniscus in my left knee, and in the right knee a bilateral torn meniscus, I’ve also suffered with inner thigh cramps, plantar fasciitis, Mortons toe. These things kept me in intense pain for around ten years, with inner thigh cramps being really really painful and bilateral torn meniscus being the absolute worst.

    It sucks watching a players career from the HS level just fall off a cliff from injuries... The one positive thing to look at is when he was healthy, he averaged 12 points per game. He was a good 3 point shooter on a about 6 attempts a game. As long as his knee is functional he can still comeback to hit some 3s, run an offense as he was always a pass forward guard(Not a scorer) & play servicable defense. Hoping he can get back to some level of Lonzo Ball basketball.

    • @cheetah219
      @cheetah219 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      Likely comes down to genetics, luck, and dwade had a great peak but he fell off quick which was one of the reasons LeBron left (wade began to have knee issues). Also, dwade was able to rely on his post game and using strength to get spacing outside of this driving and layup abilities which may have helped him be effective. That all said, I and many others distinctly remember thinking dwade won't be the same after they lost to the spurs.

    You mentioned the two primary techniques for meniscus transplantation. I assume graft-versus-host issues are minimal for both types due to the low immunogenicity of the tissues, which is likely attributed to their avascular nature. Is this correct?

    As a 24 year old who had a history of sports related meniscus injuries and eventually a transplant at 21, I can attest that my knee isn’t the same as it once was, but I’m still highly active (obviously not on the level of a pro, but I can lift, run, and live normally).
    As a medical student, the meniscus doesn’t have much blood flow, so that’s part of why there is no need for immunosuppressive medication. I think it’ll be interesting to see a professional athlete progress through this injury, and hopefully he can get back to being a great basketball player!

    people who never had acl or meniscus injury wouldnt know the pain. you literally cant sleep or take a step without pain. anytime you want to get up from a seat or from your bed the pain was ridiculous. every injury is a bad injury but knee related was something else for me. relearning how to walk is really humbling. i never had fractured rib cage but i heard that is the worst possible tear you could get.

    Joel Embiid also got a meniscus removal, & judging by how Lonzo's career is going with his meniscectomies, doesn't look like the rest of Embiid's career will end up any different than Lonzo's unfortunately.

    What’s best surgery to fix Partial tear to my left knee meniscus? Happened like 8 years ago I’m wondering if I should have surgery cause if I walk too much my knee will be sore/hurt and even have me limping if I do too much. I don’t play extreme sports anymore either I basically just walk for cardio. Wish I could get the issue fixed but dr told me to just deal w it if it’s not too bad cause surgery would lead to arthritis when I’m
    Older but I just wish I could go jogging without knowing I’ll be limping/uncomfortable after

    • @kqh123
      @kqh123 หลายเดือนก่อน

      At this point it probably can't be repaired. Probably either the torn piece has to be cut out, or the whole meniscus has to be transplanted (like Lonzo had). The cut out is most common, the transplant is uncommon

    So, an athlete is told by a doctor he has a brand-new knee, and he isn't supposed to think he can play at a preinjured level again. An athlete's brain isn't built that way.

    I have a meniscus tear. Imho, it’s the worst. If you don’t rehab it correctly and keep playing on it, the tear continues and cause so many issues. Athletes want to get back to playing asap which pressures them to do many things too soon including “removing” which is the worst. Want to see zo back on the court. I feel for zo 🙏. Sounds like he may need tkr in the future.
