Endoscopic total 1 piece medial meniscectomy its effect on the medial collateral ligament



Endoscopic total 1 piece medial meniscectomy its effect on the medial collateral ligament



Acta Orthopaedica Scandinavica 53(4): 619-624



Meniscus specimens from 10 patients subjected to endoscopic total medial meniscectomy were examined for remnants of the collateral ligament. Very small amounts were found in the posteromedial area of the specimens. None exceeded 2 mm in length or breadth, and ligament demise could be found in only 1 of the sections. With this technique for endoscopic total meniscectomy, the integrity of the medial collateral ligament is not violated and ligamentous instability can be avoided.
