After cellular fluid leaves the ruptured cell, will the contents in cellular fluid be able to react with chemicals in interstitial fluid?
Of course: If a cell is inside the body, it is surrounded by interstitial fluid. Therefore if that cell breaks, whatever comes out of the cell gets mixed with the surrounding interstitial fluid. It's like being on a boat in the middle of a lake. If the boat breaks in half, you will end up in the lake. ...Read more

Water: Free fluid is typically water. The lining of your abdominal contents are slippery (your bowel, the lining of your organs) and it's thus wet inside your abdomen.

Varies: Synovial cells that line the synovial joints are the source of synovial fluid. They usually make more fluid in response to an inflammation of the joint capsule, a condition called synovitis. We do not really know of a therapeutic way to increase synovial fluid production in an arthritic joint, but there have been many studies and attempts to do so. ...Read more
Wikipedia...: Ben-horin et al. (2005) studied the composition of pericardial fluid in patients undergoing open heart surgery. They found that the fluid is made up of a high concentration of lactate dehydrogenase (ldh), protein and lymphocytes. In a healthy adult there is usually 15-50ml of clear, straw-coloured fluid. However there is little data on the normal composition of pericardial fluid to serve as a refe. ...Read more

How painful is aspiration of synovial fluid for possible gout in hands? Is anything used for anesthesia? The possibility of this scares me.
Routine procedure: Depending on your degree of fear or anxiety, different levels of sedation may be required.

In some cases, a patient receives oral or IV sedation during the aspiration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Synovial fluid cyst removed from my hip 2005. grown back 2x & doctor has aspirated. Symptoms again, should I seek 2nd opinion or keep aspirating ?

What is synovial fluid joint pain i had a lot of fluid removed from my knee after having surgery can you have too much fluid removed from your knee?
No: The joint should not have any appreciable fluid in it normally. Fluid can be there from many reasons. Arthritis can cause fluid. Also surgery can cause some bleeding in the knee which can cause the fluid to build up. The fluid makes the joint stiff and makes it hard to get a good quad function. ...Read more
Should you ask your doctor for synovial fluid analysis if you have chronic joint problems with multiple surgeries?

Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more
