PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the intermediate-term postoperative results of arthroscopic surgery for lateral compartment osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in a case series study. METHODS In a series of 30 knees in 29 patients who underwent arthroscopic surgery for lateral compartment OA, we were able to observe 25 joints in 24(More)
