July 5, 2015

Pediatric patients who underwent arthroscopic reshaping for symptomatic discoid lateral meniscus experienced satisfactory clinical outcomes after a mean of 10.1 years, according to study results.

Among 48 knees in 38 pediatric patients, researchers performed arthroscopic partial meniscectomy in 22 knees (group A), partial meniscectomy with repair in 18 knees (group B) and subtotal meniscectomy in 8 knees (group C). The researchers evaluated clinical and radiographic results preoperatively and again at final follow-up, with a mean follow-up period of 10.1 years.
