The Australian Knee Society has released a position statement indicating that arthroscopic debridement, and/or lavage, has no beneficial effect on the natural history of osteoarthritis and is not indicated as a primary treatment in the management of osteoarthritis. The authors note that this does not prevent the use of arthroscopic surgery for management of symptomatic pathology
