One of the recent advances in ankle arthroscopy is arthroscopic intervention of the ankle’s posterior region. This process has two main features compared to the other. First is the position of the patient.
During the procedure, the patient is placed in a supine position on the operating table and two small holes are opened from both sides of the Achilles tendon. The other is more risky than the other. Vessels and nerves pass very close to the inside of the small holes that are opened. It is a process that requires great experience. Therefore arthroscopy of the hind foot should be performed by orthopedic surgeons with adequate and proven experience in arthroscopic surgery.
Bone and soft tissue cysts, benign tumors, benign tumors of the achilles tendon, tendinitis, synovitis, bursitis, bone and soft tissue compression pain, cartilage lesions in the posterior part of the Achilles tendon are the main diseases treated with this method.
