Brief Summary:

Short term outcome after meniscectomy: a meniscectomy is a very frequent performed orthopedically procedure. The short term outcome is favourable, but some patients keep having residual lesions after surgery.

This prospective study examens the clinical outcome after meniscectomy using questionnaires (KOOS, VAS, SF-36, Tegner) (before the surgery, 3, 6 & 12 months postoperative.) The investigators will also record the further treatment options for the people at risk.
