The authors present the results of a statistical, clinical, imaging X-ray and optical microscopic studies of some lesions of knee's meniscus, the arthroscopy allowing this structure's biopsy during the endoscopic procedures of resection. These histological criterions are very important estimation factors of long-term results of these techniques, often the microstructure looking different to the appearing normal macroscopic aspect.
