Abstract

On the point of writing this short chapter of the book that so many friends would like to dedicate to the memory of Henri Horozowski, I asked myself how such an expert surgeon, as I remember him, would evaluate the use of arthroscopy as a routine surgical procedure for the treatment of hemophilic arthropathy of the knee.
