Reactive Synovitis Knee
Get diagnosis: The first step in treating knee problems is to determine the cause. The treatment of knee synovitis will vary depending upon the disease. If you have synovitis from rheumatoid arthritis the treatment is very different than if it is from pseudo gout. Please see a doc. Ask again if you can provide more details and/or need more info. Sorry I cannot be more help. Read more
The synovial membrane is the lining of a joint and synovitis is inflammation of that lining. It can cause joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. When inflamed, the lining will create excessive joint fluid, causing swelling and increased joint pressure. The lining can also become thickened and cause apparent joint enlargement. Commonly associated with ...Read more
Can synovitis of knee be treated? If so how? And how long should I make the strengthing exercises of the leg
I have chronic left knee swelling and pain (for 3 years!) after extensive testing diagnosis is synovitis. Any recommendations?
Injection or surgery: I'm assuming after 3 years you have tried pt and antiinflammatories. Draining the knee followed by a cortisone injection (assuming the fluid doesn't look infected) could help. If there is any suspicion for infection, hold off on the cortisone until the synovial fluid has been evaluated. Last resort is to see an ortho surgeon about a synovectomy.

Siderotic synovitis unknown origin, subtotal synovectomy 8/2013, rt knee, good rom but always stiff, often sore down stairs, no arthritis, normal??
This is due to bleed: Since not all of the synovium was removed there may be persistent synovitis. The question also is do you still have bleeding into the joint. Have you had a post operative MRI to see if synovitis persists? You of course also need persistent exercise to make certain the surrounding musculature is good and stays strong to support the knee. You need to discuss with your doctor. Read more
Pigmented villonodular synovitis in knee size of a finger. Surgeon said to cut 20cm and then remove, as keyhole will be too small. Any other methods?
PVNS: Pvns is described as "focal" or "diffuse." if focal or diffuse an arthroscopic approach to the knee is probably the best approach. Pvns can involve other joints as well including the shoulder and hip. A skilled surgeon should be able to remove pvns from "behind" the knee through designated posteromedial and posterolateral portals. Unfortunately, there is a significant recurrence rate.

MRI report of knee says...the popliteal fossa cyst which probably represents proliferative synovitis. Does this mean I have RA?
Treatment for radial & longitudinal tears of the posterior horn medial meniscus, severe knee osteoarthrits moderate joint effusion, diffuse synovitis?
Numerous: The most definitive option is a knee replacement. Knee arthroscopy is not likely to be helpful at this point. Various injections such as cortisone, hyaluronic acid/joint fluid or platelet-rich plasma are reasonable options. Meds, braces and PT are considerations.

What to do if I had an MRI of my knees showing reactive edema and bone signal is homogeneous what is that?
It depends: Reactive edema basically translates to inflammation. Inflammation can be caused by multiple things including but not limited to acute trauma, repetitive micro trauma, arthritis, and/or even an autoimmune disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis. I would recommend discussing the findings with your orthopaedic surgeon as clinical correlation is necessary. Read more
What is the treatment of reactive arthritis? I took an antibiotic course and now having pain in knee and heel.
NSAIDs or steroids: Reactive arthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs after an infection, most commonly a gastrointestinal or genitourinary infection. The arthritis is not caused by bacteria in your joints, but rather by an abnormal immune response. That is the reason why symptoms can persist, even after the infection is eradicated. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, NSAIDs or steroids could be used. Read more

My mother was diagnosed with reactive synovitis of ankle and under steroid therapy. Physiotherapy will play any role in treating this condition thanx!
Synovitis limited 2-: -a single joint as describe should be treated by local joint injections. My theory was no oral steroids. This exposes the entire body to the side effects of steroids, including avascular necrosis of the hip &/or shoulders, as well as osteoporosis. This is common in long term use as well as high dose bursts, but burst treatment is much safer. Read more
22 yo; chr. Lyme; reactive synovitis; + hla-b27; no nsaids/steroids! Opioids no help. Echo = dense tissue inhibited compression fem. Vein; flow norm.
Wait: What did you say? Lyme reactive synovitis occur in untreated long term lyme. It could respond to anti inflammatories and even disease modifying agents. B 27 refers to inheritance or ankylosing spondylitis or psoriatic arthritis. Not related to lyme. The other stuff makes no sense, could you elaborate? Read more
