Meniscus Consensus Project

The ESSKA Meniscus Consensus Project was started by the ESSKA Board after the Amsterdam congress in 2014. Its remit, under Philippe Beaufils and Roland Becker, two leading authorities on meniscus pathologies, is to establish a pan-European consensus for their treatment. This is not easy, given Europe's diversity of medicare. So a strict method is being applied, and with extensive consultation.

"Degenerative Meniscus Lesions" paper and abstract are available below.

PowerPoint Presentation on Degenerative Meniscus Lesions

The paper was presented at the Meniscus Consensus Meeting, during ESSKA's 17th Congress in Barcelona - It lists our recommendation for dealing with Degenerative Meniscus Lesions.
