Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a benign aggressive disease that presents in either a localized (LPVNS) or diffuse (DPVNS) form. Arthroscopic synovectomy is the standard operative treatment for LPVNS, and when used to treat DPVNS, it is usually combined with an open posterior procedure. The purpose of this technical note is to report the technique that is refined to allow for arthroscopic synovectomy as the sole treatment for DPVNS. Authors present technique with the factors they have found to be important to ensure adequate arthroscopic synovectomy, while minimizing risks and complications. The combination of additional portals, the use of multiple different shavers and arthroscopes and the use of a leg holder all maximize our ability to clear disease.
