Arthroscopy may be a quite common orthopedic procedure; however, it remains challenging from technical and psychomotor perspectives. one among the most interesting thing is that arthroscopy requires ambidextrous triangulation in three dimensions, while the surgeon is guided by a two-dimensional display screen . The Arthroscopic Surgery educational program was initiated in 2011 as a collaborative effort of AANA, AAOS, and ABOS. The program is predicated on the principle that basic surgical skills are best developed sequentially. It assumes that advanced proficiency should be supported successful completion of a basic skills curriculum.
To become conversant in the essential set-up and performance of the arthroscopic ‘tower’, basic hand tools, OR set-up, draping techniques and basic arthroscopic portals.
To develop some basic ambidextrous triangulation skills that are important for clinical performance of arthroscopic surgical procedures.
To become conversant in principles of interventional arthroscopy, like avoiding unnecessary contact with the walls of a closed space and maintaining a stable view of a targeted area while using an instrument within the opposite hand to get rid of or resect a tissue.
To know the surgical techniques involved the location of suture anchors into a bone.
To know the varied techniques and steps sequence for the passage of suture through tissue, and become conversant in the related tools.
To find out the steps sequence required for tying different basic knots, which are wont to tie sutures arthroscopically.
