Penetration of the joint capsule by the trocar point is clearly felt, but on no account must the pointed trocar be allowed to penetrate the joint completely.

The camera itself and at least 1 meter of the camera cable towards the monitor are enclosed in sterile wrapping. This wrapping also surrounds the eyepiece of the arthroscope, so no nonsterile part of the equipment becomes involved during arthroscopy using a video camera. With the surgeon viewing directly through the arthroscope, the black portion (eyepiece) must be regarded as nonsterile.
