Normal joint conditions are altered during arthroscopic surgery, and these changes have uncertain ultrastructural and biomechanical effects on articular cartilage. Experimental studies have shown that temperature variations affect the biomechanical properties of articular cartilage. We documented the temperature of the knee joint in 40 patients at the beginning and end of an arthroscopic procedure (anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction or meniscectomy). The intra-articular measurements were… CONTINUE READING
