Giant loose body of knee joint in a case of osteoarthritis knee: A case report and review of literature


Author(s): Dr. Ekjot Singh Arora, Dr. Kaushal Kant Mishra, Dr. Ravinder Bisht and Dr. Sachin Sharma

Abstract: Loose bodies are free floating fibrous, bony, cartilaginous or osteo cartilaginous fragments inside a synovial joint. While majority are asymptomatic, some of them are symptomatic and can present with swelling, knee pain, locking of joint as well as restriction of movement. A symptomatic loose body, whatever maybe the size, demands removal. Even though arthroscopy is the most common operative intervention used in removal, arthrotomy is indicated to remove bodies that are present at inaccessible areas or are very large in size.
