Arthroscopic lateral collagen meniscus implant in a professional soccer player.
Summary of "Arthroscopic lateral collagen meniscus implant in a professional soccer player."
A case of an arthroscopically implanted lateral Collagen Meniscus Implant in a 24-year-old professional soccer player is reported. This meniscal scaffold was able to improve knee function and reduce pain in this symptomatic meniscectomized young athlete at 36-month follow-up. This is the first case of an arthroscopic lateral collagen meniscal scaffold implanted in a high-level soccer player described in literature.

Collagen Type V
A fibrillar collagen found widely distributed as a minor component in tissues that contain COLLAGEN TYPE I and COLLAGEN TYPE III. It is a heterotrimeric molecule composed of alpha1(V), alpha2(V) and alpha3(V) subunits. Several forms of collagen type V exist depending upon the composition of the subunits that form the trimer.
