Aspiración de las articulaciones

El análisis de líquido sinovial consiste en una serie de pruebas que se hacen al líquido sinovial de la articulación para ayudar a diagnosticar y tratar anomalías relacionadas con las articulaciones. Para obtener una muestra del líquido sinovial, se inserta una aguja en el espacio articular de la rodilla. Cuando la aguja está en el lugar adecuado se extrae líquido sinovial para enviar la muestra al laboratorio con el fin de que sea analizada.Aspiración de las articulaciones
