  • Recent studies suggest that most meniscal cysts can be treated surgically by arthroscopic management of the meniscal tear and arthroscopic cyst evacuation. But arthroscopic cyst decompression may sacrifice a substantial amount of meniscal tissue that is not torn in order to expose the "stalk" of the cyst. Nowadays, the trend is changing as preserving the involved meniscus to prevent from inevitable degenerative changes after meniscectomy. The purpose of this report is to describe a new surgical technique that minimizes loss of meniscal tissue in hopes of maximizing residual meniscal function. We experienced 10 patients with meniscal cysts that were consisted of four lateral cysts and six medial cysts. Menisci were torn in all cases. Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and decompression of cysts were performed in 9 cases, and arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and open cystectomy in 1 case. The procedures were consisted of injection of the methylene blue into the cyst, partial meniscectomy of the meniscal tear until the dye was seen in orifice of the cyst, and decompression of cyst through cystic opening. This article serves to confirm the relationship between torn menisci and cysts, to re-evaluate the occurrence ratio of the meniscal cyst on the medial to lateral meniscus, and to assess the efficacy of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and decompression of cyst as a potentially meniscal sparing procedure.

  • Purpose : After the total or partial meniscectomy of the lateral discoid meniscus, many patients complain the residual pain or the recurrent symptoms of the meniscus, and some of them need reoperation. We analyzed the causes of the reoperation after initial meniscectomy. Material & Method : Two hundred seventy three patients with the symptomatic lateral discoid meniscus were treated by arthroscopic meniscectomy between October, 1989 and September, 1998. Of the 273 patients, 69 patients were treated by total meniscectomy and 204 patients were treated by partial meniscectomy. The male to female sex ratio was 1:1.04, and the average of the age was 23.1 years old(from 4 to 59 years old). The reoperation was done in 8 patients, of which 1 was the case of total meniscectomy at the initial operation, and the rest 7 were the case of partial meniscectomy. Results : Of the 8 reoperations, 3 patients recurred the meniscal symptoms within the 3rd week after the initial operation, and 5 patients recurred beyond the 3rd week after the initial operation. Among the 3 patients of carly recurrence, 2 patients showed inadequate sizes of the remnant meniscus, and 1 patient showed posterolateral instability of the remained meniscus. Among the 5 patients of late recurrence, 3 patients showed rerupture of the meniscus, and 2 patients showed associated pathology of degenerative arthritis following osteochondritis dissecans. Conclusions : The reoperation rate after initial meniscectomy of the lateral discoid meniscus was higher in partial meniscectomy than total meniscectomy. During the operation of the lateral discoid meniscus, we must determine the adequate resectional margin, confirm the remnant meniscus by probing, and look for the associated pathologies.

  • Purpose : To introduce arthroscopic partial meniscectomy fur bucket handle tear of medial meniscus using posteromedial portal, which is superior to arthroscopic partial meniscectomy using standard anterior portals commonly used. Method : After arthroscopic examination of the knee, we reduce the torn meniscus, advance the arthroscope into posteromedial compartment under arthroscopic visualization, we make posteromedial portal with reexamination of the compartment and perform arthroscopic partial meniscectomy. Conclusion : With the technique of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy using standard anterior portals, accurate partial meniscectomy can not be done because of inadequate visual field, associated meniscal injuries of posterior horn and cartilage lesion of posterior aspect of the medial femoral condyle can be missed, commonly posterior cruciate ligament can be injured and artificial damage to weight bearing surface of medial femoral condyle is possible. An arthroscopic partial meniscectomy using posteromedial portal is an excellent method fur bucket handle tear of medial meniscus.

  • Purpose: To study the long-term outcome of arthroscopic meniscectomy with regard to clinical symptoms and radiographic signs of osteoarthritic change. Materials and Methods: The materials for the investigation consisted of 79 individuals among 144 patients who underwent knee arthroscopy due to an isolated meniscal tear from October 1990 to September 1992 in our hospital. Those 79 individuals were followed up for $10{\sim}15$ years after the knee arthroscopy and were took clinical examination through the review of knee radiographies obtained with weight bearing. 52 of the 79 patients were men, and the mean age of the total materials was 34.6 years old (in the range $17{\sim}48$). Results: At follow-up, radiographic changes including Fairbank changes and joint space narrowing were seen from 45 of the 79 patients (56.2%). In other calculation, radiographic changes were seen in 23 out of 54 patients (42.6%) who had a partial meniscectomy, but were presented in 22 out of 25 patients (88.0%) who had a total meniscectomy. As a result, more radiographic changes were seen after total meniscectomy (p=0.03). In clinical results, 39 out of 54 patients (72.2%) after partial meniscectomy were satisfactory, and 14 out of 25 patients (56.0%) after total meniscectomy were satisfactory, therefore, more percentage of patients were satisfactory in partial meniscectomy group than in total meniscectomy group, but the statistical differences were absent (p=0.24). Conclusion: The frequency of radiographic changes in $10{\sim}15$ years after meniscectomy was related to the quantity of the meniscus removed, but the differences of these changes were low and had little influence on activity and knee function.

  • Meniscectomy is indicated for the internal derangement of disk with perforation and gross morphological changes, nonreactive to conservative treatment procedures. After the meniscectomy, permanent disk replacement can be followed. Variable materials have been introduced for disk replacement. Of them, relatively harder replacing materials should have been fixed with surgical wire only. This poor fixation method provide inadequate retentive force and conclusively can be attributed to postoperative noise, poor prognosis. We tried to use biocompatible fibrin adhesive in order to obtain additional fixation force in the method above mentioned and treated two patients with the late stage of internal derangement of disk In both cases, satisfactory results were obtained.

  • Purpose: To evaluate the effects of total or subtotal meniscectomy on anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Materials and Methods: We reviewed the 455 cases of arthroscopic ACLR (anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction) from February, 2003 to February, 2007 and followed-up more than 1 year. The 93 cases were enrolled. The 45 cases who underwent only ACLR were included and the 48 cases who underwent ACLR with total or subtotal meniscectomy were included in this study except grade 3 or 4 chondral lesion, partial meniscetomy or meniscal repair. We divided the patient into 4 groups which were isolated ACLR group (group I, 45cases), ACLR with lateral meniscectomy group (group II, 10cases), ACLR with medial meniscectomy group (group III, 28cases) and ACLR with both medial and lateral meniscectomy group (group IV, 10cases). The clinical evaluation was done by range of motion (ROM), IKDC subjective score, Lysholm score, anterior drawer test, Lachman test, Pivot shift test and KT-1000 arthrometer. Results: At final follow up, group IV was inferior than group I in IKDC subjective score and Lysholm score, and inferior than group II in IKDC subjective score. In KT-1000 arhtometric test, group I had better results than group III and group IV. Also in anterior drawer test and Lachman test, group 1 had better result than group III and group IV. In pivot shift test, there was no significant difference among four groups. Conclusion: Medial or both medial and lateral meniscectomy had greater laxity in anterior drawer test, Lachman test and KT-1000 arthrometric test and both medial and lateral meniscectomy had a lower subjective score than both meniscus intact group.

  • The author has studied retrospectively the meniscectomy with temporary silastic implant. The study material used was 4 joints that were possible to be followed up in 9 joints of out of all 145 joints who were diagnosed as internal derangement and have been operated in Yongdong Severance hospital from March 1988 to February 1990. We concluded that the use of temporary silastic implant would prevent the complication which would be arised after meniscectomy alone. And we could obtain the results of the relief of clinical symptoms and maintenance or improvement of joint space when preoperative and postoperative clinical and radiographic findings were compared. The larger number of patients and long term follow-up will be needed for further the investigation.

  • Discoid meniscus is an uncommon cause of internal derangement of the knee joint. The discoid medial meniscus is much less common than the discoid lateral meniscus. A 15-year-old male student had a incomplete discoid medial meniscus of right knee combined with a horizontal tear. This was confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) and arthroscopic procedure. Partial meniscectomy was performed arthroscopically. An unevenful recovery followed. We report a case of discoid medial meniscus with brief review of literature.
