It has been previously demonstrated that the risk for the development of knee osteoarthritis is increased after both meniscus tear and meniscectomy. However, it is still unclear whether this is due to the meniscus tear per se, the surgery, or whether the development of knee osteoarthritis is completely independent of the two. Accordingly, the aim of the study is to investigate the effect of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy on the development of knee osteoarthritis 2 to 10 years after the procedure.
It has been previously demonstrated that the risk for the development/progression of knee osteoarthritis is increased after both meniscus tear and meniscectomy. However, it is still unclear whether this is due to the meniscus tear per se (i.e., adverse mechanical effect on knee cartilage), the surgery (resection of the meniscus, and subsequent loss of cushion within the knee), or whether the development of knee osteoarthritis is completely independent of the two.
Accordingly, the aim of the study is to investigate the effect of Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy on the development of knee osteoarthritis 2 to 10 years after the procedure.
Patients included in the study will be randomized into one of two groups: arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and diagnostic arthroscopy (sham-surgery). The presence of knee osteoarthritis will be assessed preoperatively and 2, 5, and 10 years after the operation.

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of arthroscopy (lavage and debridement) in conjunction with the best available non-surgical treatment versus the best available n...
Arthroscopic partial resection is indicated for patients who have symptomatic discoid meniscus with overall satisfactory clinical outcomes. Reports regarding regeneration of discoid meniscus after art...
The purpose of this study was to study the clinical and radiographic changes in the knee after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) at a long-term follow-up compared with the contralateral knee. We...
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of nonopioid pain management following arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and/or chondroplasty and to assess patients' attitudes regarding their ...
The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) for symptomatic degenerative meniscal tear (DMT) in knees with mild or n...
There has always been a need for a more accurate diagnosis than the history and clinical examination allow. This was the very foundation for the evolution of the field of radiology and arthroscopic su...
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage.
