The synovial membrane is the lining of a joint and synovitis is inflammation of that lining. It can cause joint pain, swelling, and stiffness.

What can be done to 4yer old child diagnosd wit a transient synovitis hip and what exactly is it?

Wait it out: Transient synovitis of the hip can arise from trauma, known or unrecognized, where a kid comes down on an extended heal & transfers the pressure to the hip joint. Over several hours, fluid accumulates in the hip joint & the kid limps. It will usually self heal over several days as the fluid is reabsorbed by the body.Ibuprofen for pain is helpful. ...Read more

What to do and not to do for knee synovitis?

What to do and not to do for knee synovitis?

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

I have chronic left knee swelling and pain (for 3 years!) after extensive testing diagnosis is synovitis. Any recommendations?

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. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

Treatment for radial & longitudinal tears of the posterior horn medial meniscus, severe knee osteoarthrits moderate joint effusion, diffuse synovitis?

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.

Edema: Without knowing your medical history and things such s your weight it is hard to give you any advice. My guess would be that you have some problems with the veins in your legs that causes the swelling in your legs. I would suggest that you see your physician and get evaluated for this problem. ...Read more

Very tough situation: Unfortunately, if the spacer has moved, it will continue to move and erode bone. Since you are young, some options may include repeat knee replacement (assuming the infection has been eradicated) or fusion, in which the knee is made stiff. People can usually walk with a fusion, with minimal pain; however, sitting is difficult because the knee doesn't bend. ...Read more

See Ortho: That's probably your best bet to resolve this issue. Doesn't sound like an infectious process to me-more like a degenerative problem like arthritis or internal derangement of the knee (cartilage or meniscus injured). ...Read more
