ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to aspirating and injecting knee. Pressure above the patella will squeeze synovial fluid downwards. For aspiration, aim below the patella at its mid-point, angling the needle slightly downwards, remembering the patella is not flat. Advance the needle slowly, pulling back on the plunger in the process, until synovial fluid appears in the syringe. Keep withdrawing fluid until no more appears.
