Is a medium size joint effusion a lot of fluid in the knee?

Is a medium size joint effusion a lot of fluid in the knee?

What causes a knee joint to lock up? Is a displacement ot the  mensicus root considered a tear? What is medium size joint effusion mean?

A meniscus tear: The most common cause of a locked knee is a large meniscus tear. When this happens, a portion of the meniscus gets stuck in a bad spot. This doesn't allow the knee to move freely, causing it to lock. Displacement of the meniscus root is a certain kind of tear. Sometimes, it can be repaired which can be hard. See an experienced surgeon. An effusion is fluid in the knee, likely from the tear. ...Read more
