THE SONOGRAPHIC DIAGNOSIS OF CHRONIC PROLIFERATIVE SYNOVITIS IN THE METACARPOPHALANGEAL JOINTS OF A HORSE Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Chronic proliferative synovitis is an insidious condition affecting the metacarpophalangeal joints of horses. It results in proliferation of the synovium in the dorsal pouch of the joint in question. Treatment involves surgical excision, thus confirmation of the lesion is important. Classically this has been achieved by means of positive‚Äźcontrast arthrography, but this article addresses the attributes of ultrasonography, a less invasive imaging technique.
