A technique for arthroscopy of the antebrachiocarpal joint in dogs is described. Both antebrachiocarpal joints in 9 dog cadavers were examined arthroscopically and grossly to refine the technique and determine structures that could be seen. Two arthroscope portals were evaluated in each joint. The antebrachiocarpal synovium, ulnar carpal bone, distal portion of the ulna, medial and lateral collateral ligaments, accessory carpal bone, intercarpal ligament of the radial and ulnar carpal bone, distal portion of the radius, radial carpal bone, palmar process of the radial carpal bone, ligaments of the accessory carpal bone, palmar radiocarpal ligament, and palmar ulnocarpal ligament were visible and accessible to instruments. Arthroscopy was also performed in 5 client-owned dogs, allowing diagnosis of hyperextension injuries (n = 2), septic arthritis (2), and immune-mediated arthropathy (1). Arthroscopy of the antebrachiocarpal joint was found to be a useful adjunct to standard diagnostic modalities.
