Abstract
Arthroscopic procedures
play an increasingly important
role in the diagnosis
and treatment of joint problems.
Good visualization and
suffi cient working space are
critical for successful surgeries,
including anatomic reconstruction.
However, most
surgeons have experienced
poor visualization and insuffi
cient working space during
arthroscopic procedures. Repeated
obstruction of the visual
fi eld prolongs procedure
duration, increases fl uid extravasation,
and increases the
diffi culty of the procedure. To
deal with this problem, we describe
a pull-string technique
using polydioxanone to improve
visualization and maintain
adequate working space
in arthroscopic procedures.
