Surgical Setup and Intra-articular Anatomy
Wrist arthroscopy has become a common diagnostic and thera-
peutic tool following improvements in instrumentation and
description of the various wrist portals in 1985 (1). As the
beneﬁts of wrist arthroscopy became evident, the arthroscopic
assessment of other small joints such as the metacarpophalan-
geal (MP) joints and carpometacarpal (CMC) joints developed.
Surgical small joint arthroscopy of the upper extremity has
continued to evolve.
