Abstract

The authors report their experiences using the excimer laser and holmium:YAG laser in arthroscopic meniscal surgery. Histologic and ultrastructural aspects caused by laser irradiation on meniscal tissues are evaluated. Two groups of 10 patients, each suffering from a bucket-handle lesion of the internal meniscus, were used for this study. The histologic results of the study confirm the clinical reliability of the laser even in the presence of different ultrastructural frames.
