Abstract

Patellofemoral pain, crepitus, and locking are infrequent symptoms after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We performed a retrospective review of 25 patients who underwent arthroscopic debridement after primary TKA to treat the patellar clunk syndrome (15 knees) or patellofemoral synovial hyperplasia (10 knees). After surgery, patient-reported knee pain and crepitus as well as Knee Society knee and function scores improved in both groups. Postoperative knee range of motion remained unchanged. Arthroscopic debridement of symptomatic patellofemoral synovium after TKA is a safe and effective procedure.
