ALVAREZ LOPEZ, Alejandro; SOTO-CARRASCO, Sergio Ricardo  y  GARCIA LORENZO, Yenima de la Caridad. Arthroscopic meniscectomy in 100 patients. AMC [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.5, pp.574-583. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: meniscal lesions of the knee due to degenerative and traumatic causes are common. Patients usually complain of mechanical symptoms and signs. Treatment is usually surgical by arthroscopy because of several advantages. Objective: the aim of this study was to evaluate the use of arthroscopic meniscectomy in patients with meniscal lesions. Methods: a quasi experimental study before and after modality with a level of evidence III and recommendation grade B in Manuel Ascunce Domenech hospital in Camaguey city from February 2013 to January 2017 was performed in 158 patients diagnosed with meniscal lesions, but 100 of them were selected as a non-probabilistic sample, based on selected criteria. Results: average age was 46,95 years. Female sex, right knee and medial meniscus prevailed. Degenerative tears were detected in 50 % of the cases. Synovial plica and cartilage lesions were found in 41 and 78 patients respectively. Joint line tenderness and McMurray test were positive in a huge number of patients. Partial arthroscopic meniscectomy was the common used surgical procedure. There were significant statistical differences between before and after while using WOMET and short KOOS scales. Conclusions: arthroscopic meniscectomy is an effective surgical procedure in patients with meniscal lesions.
