Fibular Stabilization

Arthroscopy is a surgical technique that involves using an optic to see inside the joint and miniature surgical instruments. The incisions are small and this form of surgery is less invasive than the technique known as "open". With the evolution of arthroscopic techniques and instruments, arthroscopy allows today to treat a significant number of osteo-articular pathologies.

Arthroscopic stabilization of the fibulae consists in making an incision at the back of the malleolus to introduce the optic and an incision under the malleolus to introduce the instruments.

In the first stage of surgery, the surgeon will proceed to the avalanche of the surface of the malleolus using an instrument called "shaver", that is to say a kind of motorized milling cutter, then it will tighten and stabilize the fibular tendons by re-inserting the sheath of the fibular ones with the aid of anchors.
