Introduction: Analysis of surgical outcomes and complications of patients who had a tumor or tumor-like lesions in the knee joint and around and underwent arthroscopic excision.
Method: 23 patients who had a tumor or tumor-like lesions in and around the knee joint and treated arthroscopically between the years 2013 and 2016 were evaluated retrospectively. The mean postoperative follow-up of all patients was 21.2 months (6-37 months) and all of them are still under follow-up.
Results: No perioperative or postoperative complications were observed in the patients. On post-operative month 3 MRI controls, it was accepted that complete resection could be performed in all patients. None of the patients had recurrences.
Conclusion: Arthroscopic resection of tumoral lesions in a circumference of the knee joint with the good selection of suitable patients, good preoperative planning, and proper surgical technique has low complication risk and excellent results.
