Abstract

This article discusses the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of arthroscopy for various forelimb joint disorders. The advantages of arthroscopy over arthrotomy are emphasized. As veterinarians become familiar with arthroscopic instrumentation and techniques, it is hoped that this will improve not only understanding of joint pathophysiology but also prevention and treatment of joint disease.
