So it is the scene from last 27 days. By CT scan they found that a very small hole was left in the course of the operation of the leg. While involving 1270 individuals, that looked at the excellencies of knee arthroscopic surgery in ‘middle aged’ and older patients with knee pain and degenerative knee disease, in an article published in BMJ, researchers share the results of a systematic review and meta analysis of 9 trials. Patient data were analyzed in a few different ways, including in regards to those without knee osteoarthritis found by radiography, those with knee OA confirmed through radiography, and a mixed OA and no OA group. Researchers estimated that deep venous thrombosis was reported most, followed by infection, pulmonary embolism, and death, evidence to assess adverse events was harder to come by.
They estimated the risk of deep venous thrombosis at 13 per 1000 knee arthroscopy procedures.
Authors found that although small statistically significant improvements in pain were present among the intervention group, those differences disappeared after 6 months and even when they have been present were no better than the benefits provided by the use of acetaminophen, and a little less effective than nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs.
There were no differences found regarding the function between the surgery group and any control at any point postsurgery.

So, whenever ranging from patients with meniscal tears but no radiographic changes to those with tears and similar joint changes combined with more severe radiographic changes, authors write that their study is among the first to look at the benefits and harms of arthroscopic surgery across the entire continuum of degenerative knee diseases. Although, whenever speculating that the deficiencies could point to a bias in favor of surgery, exercise was a fairly common element in the various control groups analyzed, authors write that in any case was … of inadequate dose for optimal efficacy.
