The arthroscopy of the wrist is an endoscopic procedure where the interior of the joints can be evaluated through a small incision with an arthroscope (type of endoscope). By means of a built-in camera, pictures can be taken providing the operator with on site information concerning the pathology of the joints and ligaments. Ambiguous wrist complaints can be clarified while the findings are explored with the camera. When needed, a therapeutic intervention is also possible in the same session. The existence of ligament injuries that cannot be assessed from the outside but can be diagnosed through an arthroscopy is not unusual . The arthroscopy is a minimally invasive tissue-conserving surgical procedure through a small incision where the joint can be thoroughly explored setting aside the necessity of an big invasive operation.
