In the early stages the contents of the joint are composed of thin pus and synovia.
When these sacs are overdistended by reason of an excessive secretion of synovia, they are called windgalls.
The tissues of the bone and bursa are insufficiently nourished, and the secretion of synovia lessened.
synovia in some abundance, mixed with pus, sometimes escaped in considerable quantity when infection had opened up the tracks.
The knee-joint is filled with blood and synovia, which usually extend into the bursa under the quadriceps.
It is ordinarily unnecessary to dress foot-wounds oftener than every second week after the discharge of synovia has ceased.
Distension of the capsular ligament of the tibial tarsal (tibioastragular) joint with synovia is commonly known as bog spavin.
This, however, must be performed with care, especially if a flow of synovia is absent.
synovia syn·o·vi·a (sĭ-nō'vē-ə)
A clear, thixotropic lubricating fluid secreted by membranes in joint cavities, tendon sheaths, and bursae. Also called synovial fluid.
