Jul 04, 2018

Minimally invasive surgery, also known as "keyhole surgery", is one of the trends and directions in the development of surgical technology in the world today, with the goal of maximizing the best results with minimal trauma. Arthroscopic technique is the application of minimally invasive surgery in the field of orthopedics. It is applied to the observation, diagnosis and treatment of intra-articular diseases. It is an advanced modern orthopedic surgery technology, which is in line with the development trend of modern surgery. It is known as the 20th century orthopedic field. One of the three major advances. Foreign countries began to be used in clinical practice in the 1970s. They only began to get involved in arthroscopic surgery in the 1980s. They have been widely used and become an indispensable branch of modern orthopedics.

Arthroscopy is a high-tech minimally invasive technique. Its shape is only pencil or chopsticks. The usual diameter is only 4 mm. A small incision of less than 1 cm on the skin can be used to put the arthroscope into the joint. Connected to a miniature camera, through the fiber optic illumination system and computer imaging system, the intra-articular condition can be clearly displayed on the screen. Arthroscopy can be used to carefully observe the condition of the joint and directly and accurately find the lesion. Observing the lesions in the joints has a magnifying effect, so it is more accurate than the naked eye after the joints are cut. Immediately after the lesion is discovered, surgery can be performed under arthroscopic monitoring. A special micro-device can be placed by adding 1-2 small incisions, and a comprehensive examination and surgical treatment can be performed in a targeted manner.
