Abstract

Total surgical resection of the symptomatic discoid meniscus is, in general, the treatment of choice for this pathological condition. The purpose of this paper is to present a new technique, which in effect is a partial resection of the meniscus, that leaves a semi-lunar remnant of the orignal meniscus intact.
