Diagnosis and Treatment of Postarthroscopic Synovial Knee Fistulae – A Report of Four Cases and Review of the Literature
20 January 2010 (online)
Development of synovial knee fistulae following arthroscopic knee surgery is a rare but under-reported complication. The diagnosis and treatment of this complication is described in a series of four patients. Synovial knee fistula formation is a benign complication and in the majority of patients it can be treated conservatively with immobilization until healing occurs. The presence of infection should always be excluded.
