Knee ‘washouts’ or debridements are not done routinely for osteoarthritis but may be considered if the knee locks. 70 in every 100 patients have improved symptoms if mechanical symptoms (such as locking) present. Even if there is locking or giving way 30 in every 100 patients will not benefit. If no mechanical symptoms, only 50 in 100 patients improve following arthroscopy. Risks are very low
