meniscectomy

Recommendation 19 – Partial meniscectomy is an option for patients with knee osteoarthritis. ┬áThese patients must also have symptoms indicating a torn meniscus and / or a loose body in their knee joint.

There aren’t any published studies that confirm this recommendation but the expert opinion of the research team concludes that if you have a torn meniscus and knee osteoarthritis, it makes sense to have the tear or loose material removed by arthroscopy.
