Only 50% of surgeons’ predictions of outcomes after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM) were correct. This value was higher for patients with the best outcomes (66%) than for patients with worse outcomes (34%). Moreover, the predictive ability was not different between experienced and non-experienced surgeons. Thus, surgeons are limited in their ability to predict outcomes in patients with non-obstructive meniscal tears. These are findings of a large study among orthopaedic surgeons in The Netherlands and Australia.
