A comparison of arthrocentesis teaching tools: cadavers, synthetic joint models, and the relative utility of different educational modalities in improving trainees' comfort with procedures.

J Clin Rheumatol 2012 Jun;18(4):175-9

Division of Rheumatology, The Hospital for Special Surgery-Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY, USA.

Background: Each year, rheumatology programs across the country teach incoming trainees the skill of arthrocentesis, but the relative effectiveness of various teaching techniques has not been assessed in a systematic way.

Objectives: We compared approaches to teaching arthrocentesis using cadavers versus anatomic models.

Methods: In a pilot study, new rheumatology fellows (n = 7) from 2 academic institutions were surveyed at 3 points during arthrocentesis training: (1) before assuming patient care; (2) after lecture with handouts, followed by practice either on cadavers (group A) or on synthetic joint models (group B); and (3) 6 weeks into fellowship.

[Ultrasound-guided interventional procedures in the musculoskeletal system].

Radiologia 2010 Nov-Dec;52(6):525-33. Epub 2010 Oct 15.

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital de Basurto, Bilbao, España.

Ultrasonography is the most appropriate tool for interventional procedures in the musculoskeletal system when the lesion is visible on ultrasonography. Procedures performed under ultrasonographic guidance include: taking biopsies; draining abscesses; bursitis; hematomas or muscle tears; treating cystic lesions; diagnostic or therapeutic arthrocentesis; injecting substances into joints or lesions; aspirating calcium deposits and extracting foreign bodies. Although some of these procedures are often carried out without imaging guidance, ultrasonographic guidance improves their efficacy. Read More

Ultrasound-guided therapeutic procedures in the musculoskeletal system.

Curr Probl Diagn Radiol 2008 Sep-Oct;37(5):203-18

Servicio de Radiodiagnóstico, Hospital de Basurto, Bilbao, Spain.

Ultrasound allows the exploration of most of the musculoskeletal system, including lytic bone lesions. Its flexibility, availability, and low cost make it the best tool to guide interventional therapeutic procedures in any musculoskeletal system lesion visible on ultrasound. These techniques include drainages of abscesses, bursitis, hematomas or muscular strains, treatment of cystic lesions (ganglions, Baker's cysts), arthrocentesis, injection of substances in joints and soft tissues, and aspiration of calcific tendinitis.

Département d'Imagerie Médicale, CHRU de Dijon, BP 77908, 21079 Dijon.

Diagnostic and therapeutic interventional procedures are rapidly expanding and, when guided by imaging, are more efficient then when performed with a blinded technique. Compared to fluoroscopy and CT, ultrasound does not utilize ionizing radiation. It can facilitate needle placement for arthrography, tenography or bursography or it can guide a variety of procedures such as aspiration, arthrocentesis, local steroid injections and needling of tendon calcifications.

Arthrocentesis.

J Fam Pract 1985 Feb;20(2):179-84

Aspiration of the synovial joints is an important part of the diagnostic and therapeutic armamentarium of the physician and may provide vital information that can be obtained in no other way. As with any other technique in medicine, skill and safety in the aspiration of joints can be acquired only through careful study and continued practice in arthrocentesis. When appropriate preparations and precautions are observed, obtaining fluid from synovial joints is safe, relatively pain free, inexpensive, and extremely beneficial to the patient. Read More
