Arthroscopy – Sports Injury

Arthroscopy – Sports Injury

Arthroscopy, also termed as arthroscopic surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used by surgeons to examine, diagnose, envision and treat damages related to the interior of a joint. This procedure is performed using an arthroscope, a type of endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision in the patient’s skin. Arthroscopic procedures are usually carried out either to examine or to treat a range of orthopaedic conditions. These conditions may include torn floating cartilage, torn surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction and trimming damaged cartilage.

The main feature of arthroscopy is that the joint is not completely exposed as compared to the traditional open surgery; and this makes it more beneficial. Under arthroscopy, two small incisions are made to insert the arthroscope and other surgical instruments used in the knee cavity to extract the knee cap. This decreases the trauma to the connective tissue and thereby increases the chances of surgical success; and also reduces the recovery time.
It is specifically beneficial for professional athletes, who suffer from recurrent injuries of knee joints and demand speedy recovery. The smaller incisions result in minimal scarring. The joints are inflated using irrigation fluid to make a surgical space. In this procedure, smaller surgical instruments are used as compared to the traditional instruments. Arthroscopic Surgeons observe the joint area on a video monitor to diagnose the extent of injury and then repair torn joint tissue, such as ligaments and menisci or cartilage.
Arthroscopy is commonly used for joints of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, foot, and hip. The surgery of the knee using an arthroscope is termed as Knee Arthroscopy Surgery.
