Summary: Patients with catching or locking of the knee may have the same likelihood of having catching or locking at 2, 6, and 12 months, whether or not they have arthroscopic partial meniscectomy (APM). (In other words, surgical resection of a torn meniscus does not appear to be useful for treating knee catching or occasional locking)
