Injuries of the knee and shoulder joints.

Vladimir Slastinin

Injuries of the knee and shoulder joints and their consequences.

Menisci and the anterior cruciate ligament are the leading structures in the frequency of damage in the knee joint. Inadequate diagnosis and as a consequence incorrect treatment can lead to a significant decrease in the quality of life and to the rapid progression of the knee joint arthrosis.

Improving the diagnosis of injuries and a global understanding of the biomechanics of the shoulder joint have led to an avalanche-like increase in interest in this pathology in recent years. The leading pathologies of the shoulder joint in young patients in this segment are shoulder instability and rupture of the rotator cuff tendons.

Arthroscopic technologies allow us to significantly improve the results of treatment of shoulder and knee joints pathology. The main advantage of this technique is not small operation incisions, although most patients appreciate the cosmetic part of these operations, but the very high accuracy of intra-articular manipulations, together with the ability to visualize structures that are not accessible for viewing during open surgery.
