Arthroscopic management of calcific tendinitis of the popliteus tendon


      Calcific tendinitis is seen most commonly affecting the rotator cuff but has not been previously reported affecting the popliteus tendon. Symptoms mimic a tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus. Arthroscopic debridement of the calcific deposit results in resolution of symptoms.
