Intra-synovial loose bodies ultrasound-guided removal
Intra-articular loose bodies can be a non-obvious cause of chronic joint pain. Patients often undergo many conventional treatments, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), physiotherapy, TECAR-therapy, laser-therapy or infiltration therapy, often achieving little or no benefits. In our experience, in such cases, when an intra-articular or intrabursal loose body is detected, it is likely to be the actual source of pain. The aim of our study is to propose a new US-guided technique to remove intra-articular loose bodies, which is mini-invasive, costeffective and can be used to eliminate the source of pain with little or no discomfort for the patient.
