Özet

Chronic non-specific synovitis has a higher recurrence rate with arthroscopic synovectomy due to the insufficient removal of all pathological tissues. Neither has radiosynoviorthesis been sufficiently effective in treatment in contrast to cases of chronic specific synovitis such as rheumatoid arthritis. This study aimed to investigate the efficiency of combined arthroscopic and radionuclide synovectomy in chronic non-specific synovitis of the knee with the evaluation of clinical and radiological results.
