  • Description The Collagen Meniscus Implant (CMI) is a type I collagen implant designed for patients with an irreparable meniscus tear or loss of meniscus tissue, typically through an arthroscopic partial meniscectomy procedure. The purpose of the CMI is to assist patients to regain mobility and return to a more vigorous lifestyle, while forestalling or minimizing degenerative joint disease. The Collagen Meniscus Implant is a method of regenerating meniscus tissue using the body's own healing process. A next generation approach to tissue repair, the CMI assists the body to generate new tissue, which replaces the damaged meniscus tissue removed by the surgeon. The result is designed to provide patients with increased mobility and a return to a more active lifestyle. The CMI is a resorbable type I collagen scaffold designed to minimize progressive degenerative changes in the knee after a partial meniscectomy by providing an alternative to the permanent loss of meniscus tissue. The CMI is similar to the natural shape of the meniscus and it is made of highly purified collagen, the most commonly found protein in the body. In cases where meniscus tissue cannot be repaired by suturing, the damaged tissue is removed and the CMI is sutured in place filling the defect where tissue is missing. Once sutured in place, the CMI provides a matrix into which the body's own cells may begin to move or migrate. New meniscus tissue is formed as these cells migrate and multiply. As this tissue regeneration takes place, the CMI is absorbed by the body. The regenerated tissue has the potential to restore function, reduce pain, and possibily suspend the degenerative process that begins with the loss of meniscus tissue. The CMI is made of type I collagen and it is a biocompatible, bioresorbable material that is designed to provide a scaffold for tissue growth when implanted in the knee. The surgeon sutures the CMI into the area where the meniscus tissue is missing. Once implanted, the CMI's highly porous matrix allows cellular ingrowth from the patient's own cells. This process regenerates meniscus tissue which provides the potential for restoring function, reducing pain and possibly arresting the degenerative process that begins with the loss of meniscus tissue.
