Use of the arthroscope for evaluation of shoulder instability

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The arthroscope has proved to be an invaluable tool for the accurate assessment of knee complaints. With improving techniques and instrumentation, surgical treatment of meniscal, cartilaginous and ligamentous injuries are readily managed with minimal morbidity. More recently, the arthroscope has been used to evaluate and treat shoulder pathology with the same level of confidence that is realized in the knee. In the following case discussion, the arthroscope was used to evaluate the shoulder of an athlete whose diagnosis was unclear. Not only was the diagnosis clarified after arthroscopy, but treatment was rendered as well.
