When is knee arthroscopy used?
Knee arthroscopy can be used to treat the following knee conditions-
- Osteoarthritis of the knees- Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition that arises due to wear and tear in the knee joint. Age and natural wear and tear are not the only causes of osteoarthritis of the knees, it can develop due to a meniscal tear caused by an injury. Knee arthroscopy is useful for the treatment of osteoarthritis and can help reduce pain and improve the functioning of the knee.
- ACL tears- Knee arthroscopy can be performed to treat torn or ruptured ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) that cannot heal on its own. ACL injuries are one of the most common injuries in high-impact sports.
- Fractures- Arthroscopy is also used in some other cases, such as in fractures in the knee bones. It is also useful in treating cases where the patella is out of its position.
When is shoulder arthroscopy used?
Shoulder arthroscopy may be recommended for the following shoulder problems-
- Torn or damaged ligaments or cartilage ring (labrum)
- Shoulder instability, loose shoulder joint that slides around more than normal or gets dislocated
- Torn or damaged biceps tendon
- Torn rotator cuff
- Inflammation or bone spur around the rotator cuff
- Inflammation or damage in the lining of the shoulder joint, often caused by degenerative joint disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Collarbone arthritis
- Loose tissue that needs removal
- Shoulder impingement syndrome
What happens during the arthroscopic procedure?
Arthroscopy is mostly conducted as an outpatient procedure. The type of anesthesia to be administered (local or general) is determined after an examination of the patient’s overall health. The surgeon makes a minor incision on the joint that is to be examined. After the incision, the surgeon may need a pump for pushing a saline solution into the affected area to be operated on. The saline solution makes the joint expand in size. The expansion in size allows the surgeon to easily conduct the surgery and fit in the graft/implant (according to the need). Further, the arthroscope is inserted through the incision.
Surgical tools are inserted through other minor incisions if arthroscopy is performed as surgical treatment. The tools are used for removing, cutting, and sewing during the surgical repair of the joint. As the arthroscopic procedure completes, the surgeon removes the arthroscope and the tools and closes the minor incisions with the sutures. A proper sterile dressing is used to bandage the site of the incision to keep away the chances of infection.
Why do orthopedic surgeons prefer knee arthroscopy over traditional knee surgery?
Advanced arthroscopy requires minimal incision and is followed by a quick recovery. The arthroscope is a thin camera-fitted device that helps the surgeon clearly visualize the internal parts of the knee. Benefits of knee arthroscopy surgery include-
- Lower chances of infection due to minor incisions
- Lesser incisions and minimal damage to the nearby tissues
- Minimal blood loss
- Very less postoperative pain and downtime
- Faster and smoother recovery with assisted physiotherapy
- Shorter hospital stay
- Return to sports and other regular activities within a few months
Although arthroscopy is a safer choice than the standard open approach, there are some risks. Hence, it is important to choose a highly skilled and experienced orthopedic surgeon.
