ALVAREZ LOPEZ, Alejandro; GARCIA LORENZO, Yenima; ORTEGA GONZALEZ, Carlos  y  GUILLEN DE LA ROSA, Rafael. Meniscus lesions in patients with osteoarthritis of knee. AMC [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.343-352. ISSN 1025-0255.

Introduction: meniscus lesions of knee in patients with osteoarthritis are very common, showed by Henderson´s triad, thereby further limiting the movement of knee joint. Development: a literature review was conducted with regard to the following aspects: normal biochemical composition of meniscus, alterations that suffer during the degenerative joint process of knee, cause-effect relationship between meniscus and presence of osteoarthritis. Finally it is mentioned the treatment via arthroscopy and authors´ own outcomes with reference to citations from international authors. Conclusions: meniscus lesions have different behavior in patients with osteoarthritis of knee. The result of surgical treatment via arthroscopy constitutes a source of good prognosis and the absence or decrease of meniscal tissue increases the progression of degenerative joint disease of knee.
