Abstract

Objectives The objective of this study was to describe a novel cadaver model and to determine the utility of this model for teaching and assessing students in performing knee, elbow, and wrist arthrocentesis. Methods Third year medical students were evaluated while performing arthrocentesis during a fresh cadaver training sessions. Results Sixty-three participants were included in this analysis. There was statistically significant improvement between the pre- and post-test analysis in all aspects assessed in our study of elbow, knee and wrist arthrocentesis. Conclusions The use of fresh cadavers for the education and assessment of arthrocenteses is an effective training model.
