TATARUNAS, Angélica Cecília  and  MATERA, Julia Maria. Arthroscopic study of the shoulder joint on dogs cadavers. Acta Cir. Bras. [online]. 2004, vol.19, n.3, pp.275-285. ISSN 0102-8650.

PURPOSE: The aim of this research was to analyze the technical difficulties and the possibility to see the structures into the joint on the arthroscopy of the shoulder on dogs cadavers. METHODS: The portals were lateral for the arthroscopy and craniolateral for the instrument on the 30 joints studied. RESULTS: On studying it the diagnosis showed osteocondrosis of the humeral head, strange material attached to the caudomedial gutter, tear of the glemoumeral medial ligament, and iatrogenic lesions of the cartilage. The complications concerning the technique consisted of the difficulty to do the portal arthroscopic, portal instrumental and triangulation. There was premature removal of both the arthroscopic and instrument as well as periarticular infiltration. CONCLUSION: The use of the arthroscopy in dogs is a difficult technique and requires an early cadaver training before doing it in clinical cases.
