 [kap″su-lor´ah-fe]
suture of a joint capsule.

cap·su·lor·rha·phy

(kap'sū-lōr'ă-fē),
Repair of a tear or a surgical incision in any capsule; specifically, suture of a joint capsule in such a way to prevent recurring dislocation of the articulation.
[L. capsula, capsule, + rhaphē, suture]

capsulorrhaphy

(kăp′sə-lôr′ə-fē)
n.
Suture of a tear in a capsule, especially of a joint capsule.

capsulorrhaphy

[kap′səlôr′əfē]
surgical repair of a tear in the capsule of a joint.

capsulorrhaphy

The tightening of a torn joint capsule by suturing or, in the case of joint hyperlaxity, by thermal shrinking with a laser to prevent recurring joint dislocation, which is of particular use for shoulder joint instability.

(kap'sū-lōr'ă-fē)
Suture of a tear in any capsule; specifically, suture of a joint capsule to prevent recurring dislocation of the joint.
[L. capsula, capsule, + G. Frhaphē, suture]

capsulorrhaphy

suture of a joint capsule to repair a tear (e.g. the first metatarsophalangeal joint capsule to repair a 'turf toe') or prevent recurrent joint dislocation

Arthroscopic hip surgery has become a well-accepted approach to treating numerous hip pathologies, including irrigation and debridement of an infected joint; loose body removal; synovectomy; treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI); impingement of the ligamentum teres; management of labral tears; debridement for osteoarthritis; biopsy; intraoperative control of osteotomy or epiphysiolysis; synovial chondromatosis; and thermal capsulorrhaphy and capsular plication for subtle rotational instability and capsular laxity.
Researchers conclude that proximal femur resection with endoprosthetic reconstruction is a complex surgical procedure, and that preservation of the acetabulum (hip socket) and joint capsule (sac surrounding the joint), capsulorrhaphy (suture of a tight closure of the joint capsule), and reconstruction of the abductor mechanism are major determinants of joint stability in resections.
Arthroscopy is also covered for subacromial decompression and acromioclavicular joint resection, thermal capsulorrhaphy, and other procedures.
Thermal capsulorrhaphy is one such technique that has been used to stabilize shoulders with multidirectional instability.
It usually entails arthroscopic capsulorrhaphy or labral repair, debridement of partial rotator cuff tears and subacromial decompression, based on the underlying pathology.

ALPSA lesions have been successfully treated arthroscopically by mobilizing the tissue from the scapular neck and converting them into Bankart lesions with subsequent repair and capsulorrhaphy.
Byrd reviewed four patients who underwent thermal capsulorrhaphy for hip instability with minimum 2-year follow-up; HHS increased from 52.
Reconstructive options for the associated internal rotation contracture include capsuloplasty, open reduction and posterior capsulorrhaphy, pectoralis major tenotomy, and subscapularis slide.
