Through the nick using Kocher's forceps (Fig: 6) all loose bodies were removed with the help of arthroscopic shaver synovectomy done.
The final stage of the procedure is to remove the loose body by seizing it squarely across its centre with a grasping instrument such as small Kocher's forceps, artery forceps, or Anderson's tendon tunnelling forceps.
