Only small incisions or cuts in the skin of about one centimeter are made. Ankle arthroscopy is applied in cases of articular cleaning and removal of loose bodies, or other treatments, such as osteochondritis. After the intervention, it is recommended a week of rest and applying ice to prevent swelling. The patient may also need to reform through specific exercises led by a fisioterapeura, lymphatic drainage and other techniques to enhance the mobility of the ankle. ...

Its function is to provi The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee, which passes between the femur and tibia obliquely. Its function is to provide stability to the knee, keeping the leg is moved forward with respect to the thigh. Of the four major ligaments of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament is the one most commonly injured, especially when a sudden change occurs in the direction of the knee. The most common injuries are torn anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament. Symptoms include pain, inability to walk or stand for long periods, or up and down stairs. For the treatment of both lesions can opt for surgery by arthroscopy or conservative treatment based on rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles. ...
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through a small caliber lens inside the knee is observed and treat various injuries without opening. Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to remove or repair torn meniscus cartilage to anterior cruciate ligament injuries broken, cut broken pieces of articular cartilage, remove loose fragments of bone or cartilage or remove inflamed synovial tissue. Recovery from knee arthroscopy is much faster than traditional surgery. Then the patient must regularly exercise his knee for several weeks. ...

The menisci of the knee are the most damaged structures to be hit in that area, especially in sports like soccer. In fact, the medial meniscus is more prone to injury than the lateral meniscus, and which is connected to medial collateral ligament and the joint capsule, so that it is less mobile. Treatment of a meniscus injury as broken medial meniscus may involve surgery, depending on the patient. In case of surgery, only the damaged part of the meniscus is cut by arthroscopy. ...
The posterior cruciate ligament connects the tibia and femur. Its function is to limit the play of the tibia relative to the femur, as well as limiting the tibial external rotation and along the anterior cruciate ligament, the forces applied to restrict the movement of the knee inward or outward, especially when important the knee is flexed. PCL injury may be caused by direct trauma to the front of the tibia that may occur, for example, in an accident in which the knee is bent and a strong impact causing it to bend backwards or is forcibly deformed. When the injury is caused by high-energy trauma, it relates to more serious injuries, fractures of long bones, pelvis or postero-external injuries or other complex structures. In most cases, partial immobilization support is applied for approximately 4 or 8 weeks and once this period is carried out rehabilitation. ...
