Karnataka’s first meniscus transplant performed on patient from Yemen

The New Indian Express - 20th Sept 2018

A heart, liver or kidney transplant involves matching of blood types, extensive screening for infections and life-long immunosuppressants to avoid rejection of donor organ. But a meniscus — the tissue between the leg bone and the thigh bone that prevents grinding of bones against each other — neither has blood supply nor nerves connected to it, which makes its transplant relatively easier. Rame Abdul Fattah (43) from Yemen became the first patient in Karnataka to have successfully undergone meniscus transplant here last Tuesday.
