oa Modern Medicine - Joint aspiration and injection in the management of arthritis

 

Abstract

Several tests can be performed on synovial fluid obtained by joint aspiration; the three that should be performed routinely are the white blood cell count with differential, the crystal examination, and the Gram�s stain and culture. From these tests, inflammatory and noninflammatory arthritis can be differentiated, gout and pseudogout can be definitely diagnosed, and septic arthritis can be confirmed.
