Extract

Elbow arthroscopy has evolved over the past several years. Initially used for simple removal of loose bodies or examination of a painful joint, it is now being employed with greater frequency for arthritis and contractures1-4. As the indications for elbow arthroscopy increase, the potential for injury to neurovascular structures remains a concern5-8.Elbow arthroscopy is technically demanding and requires experience in advanced arthroscopic techniques. Potential advantages of arthroscopic treatment include improved articular visualization and decreased postoperative pain. There also may be decreased morbidity and faster postoperative recovery.
