Epublication WebSurg.com, Jan 2012;12(01). URL: http://websurg.com/doi/lt03enobdeijn001
Performing wrist arthroscopy requires a good knowledge of anatomy, arthroscopic equipment and patient positioning. E-learning has been developed to teach this basic knowledge to residents in orthopedic or plastic surgery who wish to perform wrist arthroscopies. The subjects of this module are proper positioning of the patient, names and use of arthroscopic instruments, relevant anatomy, creation of portals and a description of the diagnostic inspection of the wrist. After having assimilated the facts of this e-learning lecture, a resident should be able to perform his or her first arthroscopy in a cadaver or a wrist arthroscopy simulator.
