High-resolution ultrasound findings include uniformly hyperechoic synovium based mass located in the suprapatellar bursa
Under the guide of an arthroscope, it was released from the inferior patella with a blunt needle drill in the following order: inner and outer groove, suprapatellar bursa, bilateral retinaculum, patellar joint, intercondylar fossa, bilateral compartment, and adhes- ions between the femur and the quadriceps.
The adhesion mai- nly was in the suprapatellar bursa, bilateral ditch, and condyle.
The bilateral suprapatellar bursa (SPB), deep infrapatellar bursa (DIPB), popliteal bursa (PB), and retrocalcaneal bursa (RCB) were imaged and measured for analysis.
The examined lower extremity bursae included the bilateral suprapatellar bursa (SPB), deep infrapatellar bursa (DIPB), popliteal bursa (PB), and retrocalcaneal bursa (RCB).
In total, 30 patients presented joint swelling associated with floating patella syndrome and 9 patients presented no swelling; 28 patients had cavernous suprapatellar bursa
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the right knee showed increased fluid in the suprapatellar bursa
Our results suggest that the same size and the relations of this with the suprapatellar bursa
can be directly related with the test of the muscular mass of the member of the individual, therefore when it works to increase muscular tonus of the quadriceps, it is also, in indirect way, increasing the articular muscle of the knee and improving its performance in the articular cavity.
The vastus medialis was not split if its patellar insertion was not lower than the upper pole of the patella, and the suprapatellar bursa
was only partially opened.
Sonographic examination of both knees was performed by the EUB 6000 (Hitachi Medical Systems, Japan) with a high frequency linear array probe, and this revealed villous hyperechoic structures projecting into the suprapatellar effusion and a hyperechoic pseudo-mass lesion in the suprapatellar bursa
in the right knee (Figure 4).
When she was reevaluated, in addition to arthritis of both knees, swelling and erythema in the suprapatellar bursa
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the left knee revealed extensive hyperin-tense synovial thickening and erosive changes within the joint cavity, including all knee compartments and the suprapatellar bursa
on T2-weighted images (Figures 2, 3).
