Articular mouse knee joint treatment
Pathology of joints mostly develop gradually, with the gradual development of symptoms. Articular mouse knee joints, the treatment of which can be a necessity, is an exception to the General rule. This disease when occurs blockade joint is characterized by an acute course with immediate development of symptoms, the manifestation of which is hard to miss. The mouse knee joint can be diagnosed in any person, regardless of age or gender. The treatment of the disease is very complicated and time-consuming: without surgical intervention in most cases is not enough.
Mouse knee joint pathology is indicated, in which a synovial cavity is formed the foreign body – splinters of the elements of the joint. The shard floats in synovial fluid and may get stuck between the heads of the joint, thereby damaging it and causing inflammation. The mouse is the size of a grain of rice or looks like a big shapeless lump. The size of the foreign body is largely determined by the cause of the disease. Depending on individual circumstances, the amount of debris can vary from one to several units.
The causes of the disease
The mouse knee joint is not an independent disease. Her education is the result of a third-party pathology or severe external impact. Regardless of the cause of disease, the education of a foreign body caused due to damage or pathological elements of the joint, after which the fragments leave in «free swimming». That is, a foreign body, despite its name, can’t get into the synovial cavity from the outside. There are several reasons, which in varying degrees can cause the formation of mouse.
|Disease||The clinical picture|
|Arthritis.||One of the main reasons for the formation of the mouse in the knee is a degenerative and/or inflammatory processes, They often contribute to the development of bone spurs and provoke the formation of fragments in the synovial cavity.|
|The Disease Koenig.||The disease is characterized by the formation of micro-lesions that are a consequence of heavy physical exertion. Food joint deteriorates, leading to tissue death. Developing exfoliation of dead tissue in the synovial cavity.|
|Osteoarthritis.||Another condition that causes the development of mouse knee joint is arthritis. In osteoarthritis there is an excess of fibrin in the synovial fluid and proliferation of fibers in the synovial membrane, which begin to come off over time or under load.|
|Mechanical damages.||A serious injury can shatter the cartilage and bone into separate pieces which remain to float in synovial fluid.|
Pieces or tumors can be bone, cartilage or fat structure, depending on what fabric was the basis for their education. The above reasons do not always lead to the emergence of the articular mouse knee joint. For example, patients with arthritis and arthrosis may never encounter the disease. At the same time, the mouse most often occurs as a result of neglect of the above factors.
The presence of joint diseases suggests that the patient is at risk, and need for adequate treatment of existing diseases.
The main symptoms
The mouse knee joint does not manifest itself immediately. There are precedents in which the piece falls into the folds of the synovial membrane and does not bring any inconvenience. The main manifestations of the disease begin at the time of contact of the mouse between the heads of the joint. There is damage to the surface, up to the complete blocking of motor function. To accurately identify the presence and absence of foreign bodies in the synovial cavity, a full medical examination with the use of x-ray and ultrasound equipment.
Symptoms symptoms of the mouse knee joint look like:
A foreign body gets between the moving parts, impeding the normal functioning of the joint. The shard can temporarily go into neutral cavity, and the symptoms of the disease subside until the next attack. The pain may be slight or acute, depending on individual circumstances.
If the fragment is large enough, there may occur a complete blockade of motor function. You receive extensive swelling and inflammation, accompanied by fever.
What treatment is required
Treatment mouse knee joint operational. The pieces can only be removed surgically. Through the operation revealed a synovial cavity. Removed all loose fragments of tissue, followed by plastic elements of the joint to avoid recurrence of the disease.
After a certain period is assigned to restorative therapy. Accordingly, national or domestic treatment is totally inappropriate, and symptomatic therapy. Self-treatment consists in maintaining cartilage in a healthy as possible, if you treat the area the risk of the mouse.
The effectiveness of future treatment depends on properly rendered first aid with the development of the initial symptoms. To avoid further damage to the tissue, the affected limb should immobilize and possibly fix in a comfortable position until, until the patient is delivered to a medical facility. It is best for this purpose is an elastic bandage which is tight bandaging of the knee. It is appropriate to use a special supportive knee pads.
In some cases after first aid symptoms may subside, but we should not forget that without active treatment, the attack will inevitably have a relapse.
