Discoid meniscus are a rare entity and this short study was done to evaluate the results of meniscoplasty in symptomatic knees having discoid lateral meniscus. Eight patients all males in age group of 15 to 25 years presented to us with symptoms of pain, locking and restricted movements at the knee. After investigations the cause was found to be torn discoid lateral meniscus in all the 8 patients. All the patients were managed by arthroscopic meniscoplasty and were evaluated by Lysholm grading on followup.
There were no complications in any patient and the symptoms of all patients were relieved. At two years of followed up there were no radiological signs of osteoarthritis. With this study we observed that meniscoplasty provides are good treatment option with excellent results in cases of symptomatic knees with discoid lateral meniscus.
