The hock (tibio-tarsal) joint is the most challenging of all canine joints to explore using an arthroscope. Current indications for arthroscopy of the hock include treatment of osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesions and intra-articular visualization of fracture fragments during reduction and fixation. Arthroscopy of the hock is a relatively new method for exploration of the joint and potential future applications of this technique are currently under investigation.
