Abstract

Arthroscopy is widely used nowadays for the diagnosis and treatment of increasing numbers of disorders of the knee, shoul-der, elbow, ankle, wrist and hip. Arthroscopy of wrist joint has also been developed as a useful diagnostic device as well as a successful surgical tool in managing disorders of the wrist joint. Wrist arthroscopy has a high diagnostic score which bough some wrist surgeons to contemplate the need for wrist arthroscopy in the majority of patients presenting with significant wrist disor-ders.
