Abstract Meniscectomy in the older patient remains a controversial topic. The aim of our study is to assess the mid-term outcome of arthroscopic partial medial meniscectomy in patients over fifty years of age and attempt to retrospectively identify symptoms and/or findings on examination which can differentiate between non-degenerative medial meniscal tears versus degenerative meniscal changes.
