BACKGROUND Although arthroscopic meniscal reshaping for discoid lateral meniscus (DLM) has better outcomes than total or subtotal meniscectomy, degenerative changes on radiographs are still seen in some patients with meniscal reshaping. PURPOSE To assess the risk factors associated with knee joint degeneration after reshaping surgery for juvenile DLM. STUDY DESIGN Case-control study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS Forty patients (45 knees) with a mean age of 12.0 years who underwent… CONTINUE READING
