When arthroscopy of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is performed, we often observe differences in the resistance of hydraulic pressure during intra-articular pumping. It can be speculated that intra-articular adhesion and contracture of the capsule and ligament may cause these differences in resistance. In order to measure the changes in intra-articular hydraulic pressure before and after arthroscopic ablation surgery, seven cases were examined by balloon pumping technique. We concluded that the values of intra-articular hydraulic pressure are implicated in the severity of the internal derangement of TMJ.
