This includes surgical preparation and postoperative care of patients, including the extensive and detailed necessary documentation. Information on imaging, the latest refixation procedures, and an outlook on the potential of biologic methods to improve meniscal healing complete this concept. In addition to the basics of arthroscopy, the practical procedure of arthroscopic knee surgery is explained step by step with the help of significant intraoperative findings and detailed graphics.
