This study analyzes patient participation in athletic activities after meniscectomy. Seventy simple meniscus lesions in 68 patients without ligamentous insufficiency were studied by means of a detailed questionnaire and clinical and radiological examinations. Follow-up ranged from 1 to 18.4 years, averaging 4.5 years. These cases are classified into two groups, depending on the intensity of athletic activities. Group 1 consisted of international class athletes and Group 2 consisted of both competitive and recreational athletes. None of those studied have given up sports following meniscectomy. Results were worse in Group 1 than in Group 2 in both clinical and subjective evaluation. In Group 1 volleyball players presented results worse than those of football (American style) players and wrestlers. In Group 2 there was no significant difference in results among athletes of various sports. We conclude that the results after meniscectomy are influenced by the quality and frequency of postoperative athletic activities.
