PCL Graft Fixed by Endobutton, Titanium Screw and Suture Disc
Joint issues in the body are treated by way of Arthroscopy. Initially, Arthroscopy was used only for planning normal open surgery, but because of the new tools as well as cutting-edge surgical methodologies, many problems can also be addressed using an Arthroscope.
It is a little tube that is inserted in the body which has a set of lenses, a small video camera, and a viewing light. The surgeon can watch the procedure being performed because of the camera which is linked to the external monitor. Although the procedure of the surgery may vary, the methodology remains the same. The patient may either receive a general, local, or a spinal anaesthetic. Thereafter, a small incision is made in the skin, through which an arthroscope is inserted. With light being transmitted via fibre optics, information on the interior of the joint is transmitted on to the screen and corrective surgery, if needed, may be performed during the initial diagnostic procedure. Although the recovery time varies on a case-to-case basis, usually a patient can go home hours after the surgery and some of them can even get back to their normal lives within days or weeks.
