Cervical synovial cysts: case report and review of the literature. (3/77)

The authors describe the case of a 58-year-old man with a 6-month history of severe myelopathy. CT scan and MRI of the spine revealed a cystic formation, measuring about 1 cm in diameter, at C7-T1 at a right posterolateral site at the level of the articular facet. At operation the mass appeared to originate from the ligamentum flavum at the level of the articular facet and was in contact with the dura mater. Once the mass had been removed, there was a significant amelioration of the patient's symptoms. As previously suspected, histological aspect was synovial cyst. Cervical synovial cysts are extremely rare and, as far as we know, only 22 cases have so far been described in the literature. Diagnostic radiological investigations used were CT scan and MRI. At CT scan the most important diagnostic findings are a posterolateral juxtafacet location of the mass, egg-shell calcifications on the wall of the cyst, and air inside the cyst. At MRI the contents of the cyst are iso/hypointense on T1- and hyperintense on T2-weighted images. There may also be a hypointense rim on T2-weighted images, which enhances after i.v. administration of gadolinium. Surgical treatment consists of removal of the mass. Fixation of the vertebral segments involved is not always necessary.  (+info)

Craniocervical junction synovial cyst associated with atlanto-axial dislocation--case report. (4/77)

A 51-year-old female presented with a rare case of synovial cyst at the cruciate ligament of the odontoid process associated with atlanto-axial dislocation, manifesting as a history of headache and numbness in her left extremities for 5 months, and progressive motor weakness of her left leg. Neuroimaging studies revealed a small cystic lesion behind the dens, which severely compressed the upper cervical cord, and atlanto-axial dislocation. The cyst was successfully removed via the transcondylar approach. C-1 laminectomy and foramen magnum decompression were also performed. Posterior craniocervical fusion was carried out to stabilize the atlanto-axial dislocation. The cyst contained mucinous material. Histological examination detected synovial cells lining the fibrocartilaginous capsule. Synovial cysts of this region do not have typical symptoms or characteristic radiographic features. Careful preoperative evaluation of the symptoms and a less invasive strategy for removal of the cyst are recommended.  (+info)

Alternative and effective treatment of shoulder ganglion cyst: ultrasonographically guided aspiration. (5/77)

The therapeutic effect of ultrasonographically guided aspiration of a ganglion cyst of the shoulder is evaluated. Fifteen patients (nine male, six female) with chronic shoulder pain were enrolled in this study. Each patient was referred to rule out rotator cuff lesion. The ultrasonographic examination showed an anechoic cystic lesion in the shoulder region in every patient and abnormality of the rotator cuff in only four patients. Under ultrasonographic guidance, an 18 gauge needle was inserted into the cyst to aspirate the fluid. Initial sonographic imaging showed the cyst, which appeared as a localized fluid accumulation and was located between the deltoid muscle and the subscapularis tendon in seven patients, between the deltoid muscle and the biceps tendon in one patient, below the coracoacromial ligament in five patients, and over suprascapular notch area in one patient. The ganglion cysts ranged in size from 3.5 to 30 mm. The amount of aspirated fluid in each cyst varied from 0.4 to 12 ml (mean, 2.6 ml +/- 3.1) with a clear or light yellowish color and a jelly-like appearance. No major complications occurred during or after this procedure. The symptom (pain) was improved after sonographically guided aspiration in each patient. Follow-up study showed complete relief of pain in four patients, marked improvement in nine patients, and mild improvement but still persistent shoulder pain in two patients. Duration of follow-up study ranged from 2 to 24 months (mean, 6.4 months +/- 6.9). The success rate for sonographically guided aspiration was 86% on the basis of marked symptom improvement or relief. Ultrasonographically guided aspiration of shoulder ganglion cysts is an effective procedure in the management of shoulder pain caused by ganglion cysts.  (+info)

Spontaneous remission of a solitary intraspinal synovial cyst of the lumbar spine. (7/77)

We report on a 15-year-old boy in whom a spontaneous remission of a symptomatic synovial cyst, possibly emanating from the L4-5 facet joint, was noted. The medical history suggested that sport-related overactivity and/or minor trauma was the underlying cause. Conservative treatment for several months may be one treatment option if the cyst wall is not calcified and the symptoms and signs related to radiculopathy show a gradual decrease.  (+info)

Study design: This is a retrospective study. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate lumbar spine synovial cyst recurrence rates of decompression-alone versus decompression/fusion procedures. Background: Improvements in imaging modalities allow for increased diagnosis and surgical treatment of symptomatic spinal juxtafacet synovial cysts. Conservative management may be used as a first-line management strategy, however rarely provides durable, effective relief of symptoms. Surgical treatment of spinal synovial cysts ranges from decompression and cyst excision to decompression with fusion procedures. Decompression procedures alone have a higher risk of recurrence of spinal synovial cysts. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 87 patients undergoing surgical treatment of lumbar spinal juxtafacet synovial cysts as a single institution over 20 years. Surgical treatment consisted of either decompression versus decompression/fusion procedures. Preoperative symptoms included back pain,
TY - JOUR. T1 - Lumbar synovial cysts. T2 - correlation of myelographic, CT, MR, and pathologic findings. AU - Silbergleit, R.. AU - Gebarski, S. S.. AU - Brunberg, James A. AU - McGillicudy, J.. AU - Blaivas, M.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - Synovial cysts arising from the facet joints are rare causes of extradural masses [1, 2]. Almost all cases have been in the lower lumbar spine, but two have been reported in the cervical spine [3, 4]. Presenting symptoms are usually those of radiculopathy. CT and myelographic findings typically are those of a posterolateral extradural mass that may be partially calcified or contain gas [1, 5, 6]. MR findings in six cases have been reported [7]. We present three additional cases of pathologically proved lumbar synovial cysts. The reasons for our report are (1) to describe the previously unreported appearance of these lesions after administration of gadopentetate dimeglumine; (2) to increase the level of awareness of this entity, especially in light of the ...
Purpose: To report a quite rare case of bilateral symptomatic synovial cysts of the lumbar spine. Surgical resection is usually the cure for this condition. Methods: A 65 year old female patient came to our department, complaining for severe lumbar and sciatic pain. MRI and CT were used to diagnose bilateral synovial cysts. Because of the intensity of symptoms, she was subjected to surgery. Laminectomy and cyst resection were performed. Results: The patient showed complete resolution of pain after the resection of the cysts. Conclusion: Although rare, bilateral synovial cysts may be the cause of severe lumbar pain. In cases of failure of conservative treatment, surgical resection offers good results.

N2 - We present a case exhibiting persistent joint effusion and formation of a gigantic popliteal synovial cyst 8 years after total knee joint arthroplasty. Assessment using flow cytometry revealed that both joint and cyst fluid contained abundant macrophage-phagocytosing wear particles. This finding indicates that wear particles participated in formation of the cyst through the communication between the joint cavity and cyst. Intraoperatively, prominent villous synovial proliferation was observed in both the joint and cyst, and delamination failure of the polyethylene insert was identified. Because no evidence of prosthetic loosening was found, only polyethylene insert revision and synovectomy were undertaken, resulting in a ...
Objective: Lumbar synovial cysts are frequently associated with segmental degenerative changes. Radiculopathy is the leading clinical presentation. However signs of instability are frequently present or arise after surgical decompression. We evaluate a series of patients with lumbar synovial cysts to elucidate if all patients need spinal fusion as primary treatment or if decompression is sufficient for a subset of patients.. Methods: Retrospective data of 40 patients treated during January 2004 to August 2009 were analysed (26 males, 24 females). All patients underwent a complete microsurgical resection of the synovial cyst by an interlaminar approach and a partial facetectomy. Fourteen patients showed additional degenerative spinal spondylolistesis requiring instrumentation in eight cases. The pre- and postoperative symptoms and imaging studies were reviewed.. Results: Most of the synovial cysts were at level L4/5. We found a strong correlation between degenerative spinal spondylolistesis and ...

I came across your post looking for answers, However I had gone to a orthopedic who stated after several x-rays, it was a ganglion cyst. my options were to have it removed with a high risk of infection due to the area. I opted out of course . Being a medical professional of pharmacy , the risk of infection was not worth it. I was at my primary doctor last night getting a regular check up and he took a look and stated that it was not a Ganglion but a synovial cyst. So puzzled I said ok who do I believe. He stated that a GC would if he aspirated it would automatically go down. surgery he said, for what!!!So I let him try to aspirate it, nothing came out. the fluid actually went back under the joint. only blood /So at the end of the day, thats what it was.it is the start of arthritis , Not stressing. it is annoying to look at , and ulgy. however there are lots worst to have.

Injection-site reactions result from acute inflammatory reactions in response to tissue damage after drug injection. They are generally short-term and symptoms typically include swelling, pain, tenderness, and bruising; these symptoms can be observed in most patients treated with injectable hyaluronic acid derivatives [3]. Besides, the overall incidence of long-term adverse reactions secondary to injection of hyaluronic acid skin fillers is believed to be low, and the vast majority of them represent a foreign body-related chronic inflammatory reaction.. The cause of formation of cutaneous metaplastic synovial cysts remains unclear, but previous trauma usually precedes its onset. Synovial-like metaplasia associated with prostheses and breast implant capsules has also been reported and may occur in postsurgical cutaneous scars, which are unrelated to prostheses or implants [4-6].. The cyst in the zygomatic region is the element of a seemingly obvious relationship: its formation was attributable to ...

MR imaging preferably with gadolinium administration is the method of choice for diagnosis. Disk fragments images can mimic other causes of posterior epidural space occupying lesions. Usually disk fragments exhibit low signal on T1 weighted images and high signal on T2 weighted images. Most of the disk sequestration fragments show peripheral ring contrast enhancement attributed to inflammatory changes around the sequestrated tissue. [1, 2, 3]. Due to the overlap in the image of these pathologies the diagnosis is often difficult. We have to make the differential diagnosis with tumour, abscess or synovial cyst. Tumours usually enhance in a homogeneous way on gadolinium images. Synovial cysts have typical signal intensity and are related to the facet joint. The epidural abscess usually associates inflammatory changes and clinical signs of infection [1 ...

Acute HNs are a feature of pre-radiographic hand OA and these gelatinous synovial cysts are thought to be a forerunner of new bone formation [1-4]. The nature of the gelatinous material (being rich in hyaluronan [2, 14]) and the new bone formation that occurs in OA at these locations lead us to the hypothesis that MSCs may become entrapped from the joint SF in such material in the earliest stages of OA. Herein, we show the presence of HN resident cells which met functional, phenotypic, and transcriptional profiles of MSCs that are closely related to SF-MSCs [9, 19].. Although HNs are a common form of generalized nodal OA, clinical presentation at the acute phase, prior to ossification, is somewhat rare; only three cases have appeared in our clinic in the past five years [1, 3]. Consequently, only a small number of such gelatinous cysts could be sampled. Despite these low sample numbers, the functional, phenotypic, and transcriptional data presented here are consistent with these cells being ...

At level T6/T7 I have a herniated disk with compression against the myelum, but as it is a risky operation the NS wants to wait to operate, for he is not sure if I am able to walk again after the op. I also have a synovial cyst or sometimes also called a Facet cyst at L4/L5 which gives me a lot of trouble. This one is an easier op, but then again my NS dont want to operate yet, for every manipulation on the spine is bad for the syrinx ...
When performing Type 2 SLAP repair, appropriate indication and the proper surgical technique are paramount to obtaining a successful outcome for the patient. Likewise, knowledge of the normal anatomic variants of the anterosuperior quadrant of the glenoid labrum such as a sublabral foramen or Buford complex is critical to avoid inadvertent repair resulting in post-operative stiffness. Accurate portal placement allows appropriate anchor positioning, meticulous suture-shuttling techniques, and any necessary perilabral cyst decompression. The Single Anchor Double-Suture(SADS) technique will result in predictable, reproducible outcomes in patients undergoing Type 2 SLAP repair.
It should be noted that in all the above mentioned procedures sheath hygroma may burst under pressure, resulting in synovial fluid will be poured into the cavity of the joint, which is not very good.Thats why it becomes clear why such treatments are less preferred.Incidentally, the above methods do not eliminate the removal hygroma disease itself, but rather can hide the symptoms.In this regard, there is quite a strong likelihood that the tumor will arise again.. Regarding surgery, this method is more effective.After all, in the process of operation removed all liquid from the synovial cysts, and in its place imposed a special firming seam.In addition to efficiency, said method is the safest, but only on the condition that such procedure provides experienced and skilled surgeon.. ...

BACKGROUND: One of the currently used surgical techniques in isolated type II SLAP lesions is arthroscopic SLAP repair. Postoperatively, patients tend to suffer from a prolonged period of pain and are restricted in their sports activities for at least 6 months. The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the clinical outcome as well as the postoperative course of pain after arthroscopic type II SLAP repair. METHODS: Outcome measures were assessed using the Individual Relative Constant Score (CSindiv), the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) Score, the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), and the Short Form 36 (SF-36 ...

The synovial fluid found in the bone joints. Whenever joint is traumatized, large amount of fluid is secreted by the synovium, which makes its way out of a weakest part and leads to the formation of so called cyst. The popliteal cyst is the same type of cyst and is found in the back of the knee joints. They are benign in nature and never are a cause of cancer. Feeling of a little bump behind the knee is a sign of the condition. These cysts require no treatment and in due course of time the fluid goes back ito the knee joint.. ...
Bakers (Popliteal) cysts are frequently encountered on cross-sectional imaging of the knee. These consist of enlarged gastrocnemius semimembranosus bursa which typically communicate with the knee. They may be imaged with a variety of techniques incl
en] OBJECT: A consecutive series of 28 operated juxtafacet cysts is reported. We emphasize the clinical and radiological aspects leading to diagnosis. We also discuss the results of the surgical treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical information and radiological studies involving 28 patients were analyzed. Each patient has been operated on by decompressive laminectomy and resection of the cyst. The diagnosis was always confirmed by a pathological examination. The cyst most frequently occurred at the L4-L5 level (n = 18), and seldom at the L5-S1 (n - 6) or L3-L4 (n - 4) levels. RESULTS: The differential diagnosis from other pathological causes responsible for a radicular compression could not be done by physical examination. Spine X-rays or myelogram were nonspecific. Computed Tomography or CT-myelography could help in the diagnosis but MR imaging was the most sensitive. In our series, the respective sensitivities of these techniques are 56, 42 and 77%. The preoperative diagnosis was correct ...

A Bakers cyst, also known as a popliteal cyst, is a benign swelling of the semimembranosus or more rarely some other synovial bursa found behind the knee joint. It is named after the surgeon who first described it, William Morrant Baker (1838-1896). It is not a true cyst, as an open communication with the synovial sac is often maintained. In adults, Bakers cysts usually arise from almost any form of knee arthritis (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis) or cartilage (particularly a meniscus) tear. Bakers cysts in children do not point to underlying joint disease. Bakers cysts arise between the tendons of the medial head of the gastrocnemius and the semimembranosus muscles. They are posterior to the medial femoral condyle. The synovial sac of the knee joint can, under certain circumstances, produce a posterior bulge, into the popliteal space, the space behind the knee. When this bulge becomes large enough, it becomes palpable and cystic. Most Bakers cysts maintain this direct communication with the ...
The surgical treatment of Bakers or Popliteal synovial cysts remains controversial. The reason is high failure rate and further controversy over the long-term consequence of arthroscopic knee procedures.. The controversial treatment of a persisting Bakers cyst involves draining the cyst, usually repeatedly, and/or surgery to remove the cyst and surgically repair any damage to the surrounding tissue including meniscus tears.. Turkish researchers reported in their study that it is now well-established that formation of Baker cysts is associated with intra-articular pathologies (knee damage and degeneration) of the knee, and in particular with medial meniscus tears or other conditions that cause general effusion (swelling) of the knee.1. Again, the problem with cyst draining and surgery is that both of these approaches do not address the root cause of the condition properly - that is knee instability. Further, surgery involving any joint, and especially the knee, is very invasive and prone to ...
Bakers cyst is a swelled bursa (cyst) between m.gastrocnemius and m. semimebranosus. Bakers (popliteal) cyst can sometimes elongate distally towards the calf.

Cysts of several different types may develop within the spinal canal and may come to medical attention by causing myelopathy or radiculopathy or as incidental findings. Intraspinal ganglion cysts and synovial cysts, thought to be rare in 1985, are encountered not infrequently in current neurosurgical practice.. There is some element of confusion in the classification of spinal cysts, and several schemes have been used. Part of the confusion comes from the various terms that have been applied to the same entities by different authors, and part comes from the imprecise description of the cysts in some of the case reports.. Another source of confusion is our incomplete knowledge of the origins of some of these lesions. As an example, intraspinal epithelial cysts that are lined by a single layer of cuboidal epithelium could be of neurenteric or neuroepithelial origin. In some of the reported cases, standard light and electron microscopic techniques have not been sufficiently precise to make this ...
A BAKERS CYST is a swelling in the back of the knee. It is also called a POPLITEAL CYST because the proper name for the soft area at the back of the knee is the popliteal fossa. A Bakers cyst can be very small, and only detectable with a scan, or very large and apparent as a firm lump up to several centimetres across. It is not dangerous but can be uncomfortable. The cause of a bakers cyst is an out-pouching of the normal knee lining becoming filled with fluid. The fluid is just an excessive amount of the normal fluid which lubricates the knee joint, called synovial fluid.. If in doubt, the diagnosis can be confirmed with an MRI or ultrasound scan.. ...
Sometimes a cyst will suddenly burst underneath the skin, causing pain and swelling in the calf. A ruptured popliteal cyst gives symptoms just like those of a blood clot in the leg, called thrombophlebitis. For this reason, it is important to determine right away the cause of the pain and swelling in the calf. Once the cyst ruptures, the fluid inside the cyst simply leaks into the calf and is absorbed by the body. In this case, you will no longer be able to see or feel the cyst. However, the cyst will probably return in a short time.. A popliteal cyst, also called a Bakers cyst, is a soft, often painless bump that develops on the back of the knee. A cyst is usually nothing more than a bag of fluid. These cysts occur most often when the knee is damaged due to arthritis, gout, injury, or inflammation in the lining of the knee joint. Surgical treatment may be successful when the actual cause of the cyst is addressed. Otherwise, the cyst can come back again ...

What are ganglion cysts?. Ganglion cysts are very common lumps within the hand and wrist that occur adjacent to joints or tendons. The most common locations are the top of the wrist (see Figure 1), the palm side of the wrist, the base of the finger on the palm side, and the top of the end joint of the finger. The ganglion cyst often resembles a water balloon on a stalk (see Figure 2), and is filled with clear fluid or gel. The cause of these cysts is unknown although they may form in the presence of joint or tendon irritation or mechanical changes. These cysts may change in size or even disappear completely, and they may or may not be painful. These cysts are not cancerous and will not spread to other areas.. How are ganglion cysts diagnosed? The diagnosis is usually based on the location of the lump and its clinical appearance. They are usually oval or round and may be soft or very firm. Cysts at the base of the finger on the palm side are typically a very firm, pea-sized nodule that is tender ...

A Bakers Cyst, also known as a popliteal cyst, is a fluid-filled swelling that causes a lump at the back of the knee. This leads to tightness and restricted movement. The Bakers Cyst can be painful when you bend or straighten your knee. ϖ Causes of a Bakers Cyst Synovial fluid is a clear liquid that normally circulates through the spaces in your knee joint. Sometimes the knee produces too much of this fluid. The increasing pressure forces the fluid to the back of the knee via a one-way valve. This creates a bulge. This swelling of the knee causes a Bakers Cyst to form. The most common causes of a Bakers Cyst are: damage to the knees cartilage (meniscus) arthritis of the knee rheumatoid arthritis other knee conditions that cause joint inflammation ϖ Symptoms of a Bakers Cyst Some patients may have no pain and may not even notice the….

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of open spaces in the spine. In the normal spine, the central canal has ample space to allow the spinal cord to pass through. On both sides of the spine, small openings in the vertebrae called foramen allow the nerves leaving the spine to pass through as they travel out to different parts of the body. In spinal stenosis, there is a narrowing of the spinal cord canal or the foramen. This can lead to compression of the spinal cord and pinched nerves which cause pain that radiates to other parts of the body. Stenosis usually results from age-related spinal degeneration and is most common in adults age 50 and older. It can be caused by osteoarthritis and resulting bone spurs, degenerated or herniated disks, and in rare cases by synovial cysts, infection, and tumors. Narrowing can occur in any part of the spine. ...

Man, I thought I had problems, but I am starting to feel good after reading some of the above.. Anyway, 5 years ago I had the laminectomy procedure on L5. Took a year to heal and I never thought about it during a normal day. Last January I started feeling pain in my back, around 2 on the pain scale. Well it started getting worse every month. Finally I made an appointment with my surgeon in June. Long story short. By August, I couldnt stand it anymore. CAT scan showed one of the bolts had broken. I NEVER felt anything. I had no idea a bolt broke.. Well now I need corrective surgery on L3, L4, L5 (again), and S1. I also have spinal stenosis caused by Osteoarthritis. Also a synovial cyst has built up in L4.. After that doctor visit, the pain intensified and felt like a golf ball size ball bearing red hot in my lower spine. It traveled to my toes, then started moving upward. I was running errands one day and the pain had gotten so bad it felt like I was blacking out. My vision started getting ...

As mentioned before, cysts can come and go without having to receive any treatment for them. However, if the cyst causes pain or other uncomfortable symptoms, it can be treated with a non-surgical procedure called aspiration. An aspiration procedure is when the fluid is drained from the ganglion cyst. Aspiration is not a permanent solution for ganglion cyst because it does not remove the root of the cyst. In most cases, ganglion cysts come back after an aspiration procedure.. ...

Aileen, I have had brief periods with Bakers Cyst which in my case was an inflamation on the back side of my leg behind the knee cap. My case was very transitory and yes the level of swelling depended on the trauma that was experienced. The feeling on mine is that trauma in the area of the knee cap (Patella -speeling?)created inflammation which shows up on the back of the leg because the fluid has no where else to go. The swelling subsided immediately because I eased up on my running. Of course I wouldnt have any idea what is causing your problem but based on my experience one thing to look for is complications stemming from the knee which in turn may be caused in turn by foot kinematics (motion ...
Sounds like the surgeon is in law suit avoidance mode. Your experience with arthroscopy is not normal. YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO GO TO THE ER AFTER THE SURGERY. Do a search on it and find some descriptions of the surgery and Bakers cyst on this site and others. That amount of bleeding is quite abnormal. What did the OS say was wrong with your knee after the scope? What did the primary care physician want you to do for treatment? You may need to have a check of your veins to be sure that you do not have a blood clot. If it is a Bakers cyst, it may be one that has ruptured. It will probably not go away by itself. If you can get another opinion from an orthopod, you may need to do it. That surgeon is supposed to follow you up and answer your questions. That is what the fat fee includes - both the pre-surgery visits, surgery and post-op ...
