What Is Structure And Function Of A Joint Capsule
To Stabilize Joints: The joint capsule provides joint stability. If injured it can lead to stiffness and may then be surgically removed, without compromising stability as long as the joint's ligaments are kept intact.

3mm lump on epl tendon snags painfully at pip on slight flexion. Any excision risks? Fluid escape from joint capsule? Cause ganglion? Other risks?
Real cause?: Epl tendon inserts at the base of the middle phalynx so central slip snagging at pip joint is more likely a tear in fibers extending from lateral band to central slip causing abnormal shift of tendons. There is no structure that central slip [epl] would get caught on. Lump is most likely scar. Recommend splinting protocol first before considering any surgery. F/u with hand surgeon. ...Read more

Could i've lasting probs after nondisplaced weber b fx+partially torn aftl+deltoid soft tiss joint capsule 15wks no union symptoms now offered plate+b graft?
Possibly: Your fracture pattern is pretty common for ankle fracture variants. I would not make much of the deltoid and atfl tears as these occur with bad "sprains". The fact that your fracture was nondisplaced made it a stable injury. You are borderline definition of nonunion. May try bone stimulator. Probably just need plate and stable fixation. Doubt you need bone graft. Once fixed should do fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
