To further improve the clinical effect of treating knee joint discoid meniscus injury with arthroscopy in basketball players, this paper analyzed the detailed effects of arthroscopy in the treatment of knee joint discoid meniscus injury and identified the risk factors for postoperative pain. 1400 basketball players who had arthroscopy treatment for knee joint discoid meniscus injury were selected as subjects. After treatment, a 12-month postoperative follow-up was implemented to observe the recovery, injury recurrence, and postoperative pain. Based on the occurrence of postoperative pain as a critical criterion, patients were divided into a painful group and a painless group to analyze the risk factors for pain. Results showed that after surgery, 1274 out of 1400 patients with knee joint discoid meniscus injury recovered well, indicating an overall effective rate of 91%. The remaining 126 patients were not effectively treated, as they suffered severe postoperative pain after surgery, with a pain occurrence rate of 9%. Through comparison of risk fac- tors, it was found that there were significant differences between the two groups in terms of average age, load bearing time, joint soft bone injury condition, and postoperative cold compress condition (p<0.05). There were no significant differences in terms of their body weights and surgical methods (p>0.05). These findings suggested that using arthroscopy to treat knee joint discoid meniscus injury of basketball players can realize significant therapeutic effect and an increased healing rate. Some patients may be prone to risk factors for postoperative pain, to a certain degree due to their age and previous injury history. To minimize such negative impact of the surgery, target analysis of these risk factors should be conducted in future studies in order to formulate targeted clinical treat- ment and nursing intervention for better healing.
