The choice of arthroscopic surgery for a selected patient depends on physical demands of the patients, the situation of the tear, the kind of the tear, associated intra-articular pathology, the presence or absence of ligamentous instability, and therefore the patient’s ability to stay on crutches and activity restrictions for a major amount of your time. The age of the patient becomes vital as a result because the patient is older, the probability of a chronic tear will increase and therefore the chance of a fixable tear considerably decreases.
