Miller CW, Presnell KR: Examination of the canine stifle: arthroscopy versus arthrotomy
Procedures can be done on a day case basis, and in general are more readily accepted by patients than an in-patient arthrotomy

A clinical evaluation of arthrotomy
and eminectomy for internal derangement of temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
Treatment of early septic arthritis of the hip in children: comparison of results of open arthrotomy

In the second stage of the procedure, a patch of healthy periosteum is harvested from the femur; then the defect is radically debrided and an arthrotomy
Ankle distraction is often done in conjunction with arthroscopy or arthrotomy

2) The arthrotomy
