What Is an Arthroscopic Trocar?

Trocars are small medical instruments that are used for aiding in the insertion of cannulas and other pieces of medical equipment into the body. They're available in various types, and arthroscopic trocars are one of the many varieties used in hospitals and clinics around the world.

As the name implies, an arthroscopic trocar is used for arthroscopy procedures. An arthroscopy is a procedure which is used to diagnose and treat problems with the joints throughout the body, and it involves the insertion of a thin tube with a little video camera attached into the body in order to look at the joints to see what's wrong with them.

Like other kinds of trocars, arthroscopic trocars are available in different sizes and slightly different styles, and they're very important items, too, proving effective at aiding in both the diagnosis and treatment of various joint disorders affecting the knee, shoulder, hip, wrist, and other areas.

How Does an Arthroscopic Trocar Work?

As stated above, arthroscopic trocars are used in arthroscopy procedures. Before an arthroscopy begins, a patient will be connected to an IV line to provide fluids into the body, and they'll usually be given a mild sedative, too. Various types of anesthesia may be used to numb the area to be examined, which may be the knee, hip, wrist, or another joint around the body. The patient will need to be put in an appropriate position to provide easy access to the joint, and an incision will be made. Additional incisions might also be needed later on during the procedure. An arthroscopy trocar will be placed into each incision to aid in the insertion of medical implements like the viewing device and surgical tools.

Arthroscopy Trocar Sizes 


Just like with other kinds of trocars, there are various sizes of arthroscopic trocars. Some of the most common sizes of arthroscopic trocars range from 4mm up to 7mm in diameter.

Arthroscopy Trocar Types

It’s not really possible to divide arthroscopic trocars into different types, as arthroscopic trocars are already a very specific type of trocars with a very specific purpose. However, it is possible to find both straight and pointed arthroscopic trocars. Straight arthroscopic trocars have relatively flat ends, while pointed arthroscopic trocars have sharp points at the end to aid with insertion.

Arthroscopy Trocar Uses

The main use of arthroscopic trocars is to aid in the insertion of various surgical tools and implements during an arthroscopy procedure. This procedure is carried out in order to identify and treat issues with joints around the body.
