This retrospective study analysed the data of 86000 patients,record of 22 patients who have underwent arthrocentesis procedure were obtained,7 patients were filtered out as the study population based on the strict exclusion and inclusion criteria. Parameters such as Pre Op & Post OP VAS(Visual Analogue Scale) score,technique used were included.Data was recorded in Microsoft Excel 2007 software and then exported to IBM SPSS 20 Statistics Software. Out of 7 patients female n=3,Male n=4, Mean of age =33.71 + 11.265 & Age ranging from 20-55. Pre Op VAS score ranged from 4 to 7. Mean of the Pre OP VAS score was found to be 4.71+2.289. The Post Op VAS score ranged from 0-2 and the mean of the Post OP VAS score mean=0.29 +.756. Two types of techniques were used;Single injection technique n=4 and Double injection technique n=3. Statistical analysis for correlation was done using Pearsonís correlation method and it was found that the positive correlation was seen between Pre op VAS Score and Post op VAS Score (P<0.05). This study concludes that arthrocentesis is an effective procedure in treating Internal derangement of TMJ. Single injection technique was found to be more successful due to its simpleness & effectiveness.
