(joynt ĕ-fyu'zhŭn)
Increased fluid in synovial cavity of a joint.

joint effusion

Increased fluid within a joint cavity. There may be increased production of synovial fluid following trauma, with some arthritic disease processes, or blood accumulating in the joint following trauma or surgery or due to hemophilia. Excessive amounts of synovial fluid, pus, or blood accumulate in many arthritic diseases (such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis), after trauma, in joint infections, following joint surgery, or in hemophilia.

Joint effusions and increased signal intensity in the menisci were found on scans taken within a 10-minute period after a 30-minute jog, (5) but another study showed no alteration in joint fluid and meniscal signal in trained runners 24 hours before and after the completion of a long-distance race (28-80 km).

Performing synovectomy in TKA will give complete pathological diagnosis avoiding persistence of synovial pathology along with long-term benefits of synovectomy like no joint effusion, less pain, no synovial hypertrophy, and good range of movement of knee.
An MRI examination revealed large joint effusion and heterogeneous signal intensity within the periphery of the joint, suggestive of synovial hyperplasia (Figure 2).
1,7,9) MRI findings include a synovial mass, fat signal intensity on all sequences, suppression of signal with fat-selective presaturation, joint effusion, and absence of MRI supporting hemosiderin.
