The arthroscope is a rod-shaped optical device with a diameter of about 5mm that observes the internal structure of the joint. It is an endoscope for the diagnosis and treatment of joint disorders. The device has been widely used since 1970. The arthroscope is equipped with a lens at the end of a thin tube, which is inserted into the joint, and the internal structure of the joint is displayed on the monitor. Therefore, the internal structure of the joint can be directly observed. The arthroscope is not only used in the diagnosis of diseases, but also has been widely used in the treatment of joint diseases. Arthroscopic surgery is a kind of minimally invasive surgery. It was mainly used in the knee joint, and later applied to the hip joint, shoulder joint, ankle joint, elbow joint and finger and other small joints.

The arthroscope can see almost all parts of the joint, which is more comprehensive than the opening of the joint. As the image is enlarged, it is more accurate to see, and the incision is small, the trauma is small, the scar is small, the recovery is fast, and the complications are small. After anesthesia, You can go down to the ground to enhance the patient's confidence in the fight against the disease has great benefits. The diagnosis of difficult joint diseases and the treatment of joint injuries that have plagued patients for many years, arthroscopic surgery can often achieve immediate results.

Development history

The arthroscopic technology originated in Japan in the early 20th century and has developed rapidly in the United States and other countries since the 1970s. In the past few decades, arthroscopes have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of intraarticular diseases. Through arthroscopy, the internal structure of the joint can be fully observed, and it is more subtle than incision surgery. Many internal structures and lesions can be directly observed and treated. Some people refer to arthroscopic technology and fracture internal fixation and artificial joint replacement as the three major developments in the field of orthopaedics in the 20th century. The arthroscopic technique has been widely accepted. In the past, it was called "the toy of young people." Now it has become the standard diagnostic method and treatment technology. The arthroscopic technique is an important part of arthrosurgery and fully reflects the development trend of minimally invasive surgery.

The basic structure of the arthroscope is an optical system. The center is a rod mirror system for collecting images. It is surrounded by optical fibers that are introduced into the light source and the metal protection sheath is outside. By establishing a small incision of about 0.8 mm to 1.0 cm on the skin, placing the arthroscope into the joint and connecting the camera and display equipment behind it, the morphology and lesions in the joint can be directly observed, and the disease in the joint can be treated by using special instruments., To avoid a lot of joint-cutting.

Established in March 2006, Zhejiang Shendasiao Medical Instrument Co., Ltd. is a professional manufacturer engaged in development, production, sale and service of medical instruments. The company produces minimally invasive surgical instrument of Laparoscopy, Gynecology, ENT, Urology, etc.
