What is Arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a medical procedure performed by an orthopedic surgeon to diagnose and treat your joint’s structural problems.

Imaging Platform Applications

Progressive advancements in arthroscopic technology, including Synergy imaging and resection equipment, have been instrumental in examining joints.

Synergy Arthroscopes

Arthroscopy usually is performed in a standard surgical suite in a hospital or ambulatory surgical center.

Arthrex Camera Systems

Progression in technology has resulted in improved arthroscopy design and function. The arthroscope is meant to fit inside a cannula put into the joint using a blunt trocar, and modern cannulas usually support the flow of irrigation fluid into the joint.

Fluid Pump

Irrigation is vital for arthroscopy since it is responsible for joint distension, visualization improvement, and debris removal.

Instruments and Motorized Shavers

Various hand-operated instruments are implemented in arthroscopy. Most are general, but some instruments have been developed for particular joints or procedure-specific tasks.

Arthroscopic Probe

The probe is the most essential and used instrument in diagnostic and therapeutic arthroscopy. It is also crucial for learning triangulation, positioning or retracting intra-articular structures or loose bodies, and planning surgical approaches.

Basket Forceps

Basket forceps are primarily used in procedures that involve the removal of intra-articular tissue, such as a meniscectomy. The proper method with these instruments is to use the jaws to remove small pieces of tissue. The reason is too large of a bite strains the mechanical joints and may cause damage to the instrument.

Grasping Forceps

Grasping forceps are meant to apply tension to, securely hold, or retrieve intra-articular materials.

Scissors

Arthroscopic scissors are available in various sizes and blades for each situation. Hooked blades are more convenient because they prevent the tissue from being pushed out from between the blades during the cutting motion.

Knives

Disposable arthroscopic knives come in various shapes and sizes. The involved surgeons should use a cannula to protect the tissues during the joint insertion and removal. Blades come in various shapes, i.e., straight, curved, end-cutting, and hooked, all of which allow the appropriate instrument for each situation.

Motorized Shavers

Motorized shavers comprise a pair of cylinders, each with a matching window and one inside the other. Motorized shavers come in various shapes and angles with different blades or burrs, and all are made for specific purposes.

Cannulas and Switching Sticks

Cannulas and switching sticks come in various sizes are available to help with the insertion and the use of instruments during arthroscopic procedures; they are all designed for use in specific joints. Switching sticks make it easy for an arthroscope to go through the joint at hand by following the path into the joint through the soft tissues.

Electrocautery and Radiofrequency Instruments

Electrocautery and radiofrequency instruments are used for cutting and shrinking soft tissues. The instruments can also play an essential role in maintaining hemostasis. The significant difference between the two radiofrequency systems is that monopolar instruments typically need a grounding pad that allows energy to pass from the body. In contrast, bipolar instruments pass energy between the electrodes at the intra-articular site of interest.
