Lt knee Pain 8/10 more on lateral side 10/10 With painful limitation of flexion not > 90 degrees actively

MRI LEFT KNEE-MILD Effusion and synovitis, -Osteophytes,-Cartilage defects at both femoral condyles and post patellar surface,-Intact menisci and cruciate ligaments .

Clinically-Effusion (moderate)-Tenderness along joint line more over lateral femoral condyleCrepitus -ve Ant. & Post. drawer , McMurray and Apley's Compression and Distraction Tests

Ultrasound study

Static scan

Main findings :1- Suprapatellar pouch and 2 recesses : Moderate effusion + Synovial thickening and folding2- Osteophytes3- Meniscal subluxation (Med. meniscus)


1-US guided Aspiration and IA steroids + HA injection at the same session 1 week 2nd US guided IA HA injection 1 week 3rd US guided IA HA injection

Complete Relief of the diffuse knee pain, but persistent lateral knee pain and Limitation of flexion > 90 degrees
