Knee cysts

Cysts in the region of the knee joint

Disease:
Cysts are synovial gelatinous bursae, developing at the height of the joint gap. They also may develop from the menisci, if the semi-lunar cartilages are injured. The other location of cysts is the ham (popliteal fossa).

 

Symptom: Sometimes they can reach even the size of a goose egg. If the gelatinous cyst originates from the joint capsule, it is called a Baker’s cyst.

 

Treatment: Cysts and other associated disorders can be removed either with a fiberscope (arthroscopy), or with open surgical technique.
