Radioactive Synoviorthesis of the Knee
There is a clear relationship between recurrent joint bleeding, synovitis, and arthropathy in patients with hemophilia. Synovitis is inflammation of the specialized connective tissue lining of a joint cavity. The golden moment in treatment is when no associated arthropathy is present, because synovitis and muscular hypotrophy are reversible; in contrast arthropathy is not a reversible process [1,2].
