Key Words Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy; Meniscal tear; Knee osteoarthritis; Physical therapy; Randomized controlled trial; Crossover; Bias
Core Tip Despite several recent high-quality randomized controlled trials, the efficacy of arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) for meniscal tears remains con-troversial. In this review, we analyzed the five most important trials for potential inadvertent biases. Each study was found to have some combination of selection, performance, detection, and transfer biases that com-promise its conclusion. We also completed an alternative analysis of their results that took into account the observed high crossover rates. This analysis suggested that two studies whose original conclusions showed no superiority of APM may in fact support APM.
