Material and methods: In the years 2007 and 2009 a total of 266 patients underwent acute arthroscopic examination in Department of Traumatology the Faculty Hospital Brno after the acute knee trauma. Patiens with other intraarticular bone fractures were excluded. Results: The ruptures of the ACL were the most common findings (52 %), meniscal tear (27 %), dislocation of the patella (11 %) and chondral or subchondral fractures were (13 %).
