Osteonecrosis after arthroscopic meniscectomy is a rare postoperative complication. The precise etiology as well as the specific pathomechanism are unknown. There are only case reports in the literature about postarthroscopic osteonecrosis; large series with long-term follow-up are missing. Differential diagnosis between postarthroscopic osteonecrosis and primary osteonecrosis already present before arthroscopy but undiagnosed is only possible by stage-dependent imaging. This study evaluates the current status of knowledge about postarthroscopic osteonecrosis.
