Abstract [en]

Arthroscopic synovectomy is safe and reliable, with mild postoperative morbidity. The rationale of a surgical synovectomy is to excise inflamed synovium and thereby, remove as much effusion and inflammatory substrate as possible. In most cases, arthroscopic synovectomy is performed as an outpatient procedure. The technique has also been used for other diagnoses causing wrist arthritis, but very few results have been reported and the indications remain to be defined. In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and post-infectious monoarthritis, a long period of increased comfort and improved function can be anticipated.
