“Arthroscrapes” are unintended iatrogenic articular cartilage injuries caused by the arthroscope or surgical instruments during arthroscopy. Even the most benign superficial injuries to articular cartilage, including temporary deformation, may result in chondrocyte death. We thus declare a call to action: arthroscopic and related surgeons must create techniques and instruments to diminish iatrogenesis imperfecta.
