OBJECTIVE: Many studies have focused on the accuracy rate of intraarticular injection. However, sometimes, even when the needle enters the joint cavity accurately, it can be difficult to obtain a sufficient amount of joint fluid. This problem may be attributable to the position of the knee during arthrocentesis. The purpose of this prospective study was to determine which position, supine or sitting, would yield more joint fluid during knee arthrocentesis. DESIGN: In this study, 40 knees belonging to 30 patients with osteoarthritis were examined...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and to assess a simple, inexpensive method for ascertaining, without any imaging procedure, the intra-articular placement of the needle in the knee for intra-articular injections. METHODS: Outpatients referred for intra-articular treatment with "dry" symptomatic knee osteoarthritis were included in this prospective study. "Dry" knee disease was defined as a knee without any clinically detectable effusion. Once intra-articular positioning of the needle considered adequate using the backflow technique, contrast solution was injected using the same needle without changing its position and immediately afterwards lateral and anterior-posterior X-rays were taken to assess the needle position...
