The objective of this study is to obtain and compare bilateral elbow joint synovial fluid from patients with unilateral intraarticular elbow fracture and a contralateral healthy appearing elbow joint. The synovial fluid samples will undergo several forms of analysis for metabolites and proteins. Matched-pair statistical analysis will be performed to determine the metabolites and proteins that may play the greatest role in development of joint contracture.

Fractures of the capitellum are rare injures of the elbow rarely seen in adolescents. We report a case of a 14 year-old boy who sustained a bilateral Hahn-Steinthal type fracture of his capitelum hume...
The clear, viscous fluid secreted by the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE. It contains mucin, albumin, fat, and mineral salts and serves to lubricate joints.
Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance. A synovial cyst can develop from any joint, but most commonly at the back of the knee, where it is known as POPLITEAL CYST.
A fluid-filled sac lined with SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE that provides a cushion between bones, tendons and/or muscles around a joint.
The inner membrane of a joint capsule surrounding a freely movable joint. It is loosely attached to the external fibrous capsule and secretes SYNOVIAL FLUID.
Puncture and aspiration of fluid (e.g., SYNOVIAL FLUID) from a joint cavity. It is used sometimes to irrigate or administer drugs into a joint cavity.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
