Case description

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) arthrocentesis single port is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat various types of TMJ disorders, including joint inflammation, pain, and stiffness.


During the procedure, a small needle is inserted into the affected TMJ through a single puncture site, which is typically located near the ear. Once the needle is inserted, a sterile saline solution is injected into the joint space to flush out any debris, inflammatory proteins, or other substances that may be causing pain or discomfort.


The fluid is then suctioned out, and additional injections of steroids or other medications may be administered to further alleviate inflammation and pain. The procedure typically takes less than an hour to perform, and patients can usually resume normal activities within a few days after the procedure.


TMJ arthrocentesis single port is considered a safe and effective treatment option for many patients with TMJ disorders. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications that patients should be aware of, including bleeding, infection, nerve injury, and allergic reactions to medications. It is important for patients to discuss the risks and benefits of TMJ arthrocentesis single port with their healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
