This review paper was published on BJSM Nov 2016. This article is not open access.

However, with the advent of high quality randomised controlled trials questioning its value, observations that these lesions are usually asymptomatic, and recognition that arthroscopy is a “difficult habit to break,” it is timely to review the best evidence based management of these tears and reconsider the role of surgery.”
