The obturator is used to create an opening into the patient's joint and is removed after the cannula is inserted. The cannula then allows instruments and scopes access to the joint while maintaining a seal against the loss of saline fluid used to keep the joint clean. The seal is formed by two elastomeric valves. The first controls loss of water when there is no instrument or scope therein, while the second provides a seal when the cannula is in use. The valves operate automatically.
