Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which an arthroscope is inserted into the shoulder joint.

Plica syndrome, or synovial plica syndrome, is caused by the inflammation of a thin layer of tissue called the synovium. The synovium, which lines the joint and holds it together, can become inflamed and cause pain. In some cases, pieces of the synovium can break off and float in the area around the joint, causing synovial chondromatosis.
