VIDEO Hip Joint Arthroscopy Arthroscopy is an examination of hip joint using arthroscope. Arthroscope is a tubular telescope which captures live image Arthroscope is a Pencil sized optical device Images are displayed on television screen Arthroscope images are large in size Details are magnified and easy to observe. Arthroscopy Is Divided Into Two Sections: Diagnostic and therapeutic hip joint arthroscopy Diagnostic hip joint arthroscopy assist in evaluation of cause of pain Therapeutic Hip joint arthroscopy is performed to treat the cause of pain Anesthesia Used For Procedure Are As Follows- General Anesthesia Regional anesthesia Regional epidural anesthesia Regional spinal anesthesia Sedation with local anesthesia General Anesthesia- Patient is completely asleep Anesthesia is provided through mask placed on face or Tube is placed in trachea Regional Epidural Anesthesia Epidural catheter is placed in epidural space Local anesthetics is injected through catheter into epidural space Local anesthetics used are: lidocaine (short acting) and bupivacaine (long acting).

Regional Spinal Anesthesia- Local anesthesia injected in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) Local anesthetics used are lidocaine (short acting) and bupivacaine (long acting).
