The Role of Capsular Distention in the Arthroscopic Management of Arthrofibrosis of the Knee: A Technical Consideration

Home/Articles & Studies/Knee Studies/Arthrofibrosis/The Role of Capsular Distention in the Arthroscopic Management of Arthrofibrosis of the Knee: A Technical Consideration

Arthroscopic treatment  of arthrofibrosis  of the knee  is a technically  challenging procedure.  Capsular distention with  fluid before arthroscopy  results in  easier and safer  insertion of arthroscopic instruments with improved  arthroscopic visualization. In addition, it stretches the entire  capsule, including the difficult to access posterior capsule.  This report describes a simple technique for capsular distention before arthroscopic treatment  of arthrofibrosis of the knee.
