Arthroscopic Capsulotomy of the Hip Utilizing the Retractable Cannulated Knife
Carl Wierks, MD, (Holland, MI) demonstrates the surgical technique for performing an arthroscopic capsulotomy of the hip using the Retractable Cannulated Knife. This arthroscopic knife has a retractable blade with a built-in-safety mechanism and can be placed over top of a guide wire, reducing unnecessary soft tissue damage during the procedure. Dr. Wierks illustrates how this blade ensures a safe and reproducible capsulotomy with minimal damage to the surrounding anatomic structure.
