[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.

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.
