Introduction. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between meniscal injuries with injuries of the anterior cruciate ligament, as well as risk factors for those associated injuries. Material and Methods. This study included 496 operated patients. Almost half of patients with meniscal injury were between the ages of 21 and 30 years. Results. Meniscal injuries were diagnosed in 187 patients (38%). These patients were significantly older than the patients without meniscal injury. Meniscal injuries were significantly more frequent in patients who played sports recreationally than in professional athletes. The patients with meniscal injury underwent surgery almost four months later than the patients with preserved menisci. Meniscal injuries occurred significantly more frequently by non - contact mechanism, as a result of landing and sudden changes of direction and rhythm of running. Conclusion. Male patients hurt the medial meniscus more often, 'bucket handle' type of lesion being much more frequent than on the lateral meniscus. The increase of body mass index is exactly proportional to the increase in the incidence of meniscal injuries.
