German term or phrase: kontinentes Transplantat
"Kontinentes Transplantat" comes up in a MRT assessment.
The patient had ACL reconstruction in the left knee.
I am unsure whether this means anything like continuous or stable - nothing of help in Google.

Thanks in advance for your help.

contained transplant

I would hazard a guess and say contained transplant, if the transplant is confined to a specific area. Would that make sense in the context?

Best regards

continent transplant

Also just a guess!
In my medical dictionary kontinent is explained as
1. kontinent, enthaltend; 2. kontinent (willkürlich) zurückhaltend
and the English translation is *continent*.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  geros: A bit late to comment but I would suggest intact transplant though continent is an accurate translation. However, I have never come across the word in this sense in medical literature.
