Abstract

See full text

A flexible plastic cannula for use during arthroscopic surgery. The cannula is a flexible elongated tube having longitudinally staggered slots disposed on the distal end of the tube. The tube is tapered along its length so that the proximal portion of the tube is relatively rigid, while the distal end is narrower and more flexible. The tube is sufficiently flexible to allow the tube to bend with a joint during arthroscopic surgery.
