Abstract: Recent evidence has shown knee arthroscopy to be ineffective for treating patients with knee pain and associated osteoarthritis. Despite this there are studies to show that knee arthroscopy for patients with knee osteoarthritis is not decreasing. There is also a lack of literature which identifies potential risk factors for progression to total knee arthroplasty following knee arthroscopy. The aim of this study is to identify the proportion of patients with osteoarthritis that progress to total knee arthroplasty following knee arthroscopy.
