Ein gut verschiebbares periartikuläres Gleitgewebe und ein elastisches Narbengewebe im Bereich der Transplantatentnahmestellen sind eine Voraussetzung für die normale Beweglichkeit des Kniegelenks und die Prophylaxe eines IPCS (InfraPatellar-Contracture-Syndroms) oder anderen Bewegungsdefizits aufgrund extraartikulärer Narbenbildungen mit Verkürzung von Sehnen, die um das Kniegelenk ansetzen. Kryotherapie kann weiter nach Bedarf angewendet werden, am besten nach Belastung, d. Muskeltraining. Bei hartnäckigen Schwellungen können auch Topfenumschläge und auch andere Hausmittel zur Anwendung kommen.

Der Nachweis von Flüssigkeitsvermehrung in den Verschiebeschichten, Schleimbeuteln (Bursen), Ganglienbildung, Sehnenveränderungen der Kniemotoren und die Beurteilung der Strömungsdynamik der Kniegelenkgefäße ist möglich und dokumentierbar.
