We have used in vivo microdialysis to monitor postoperative physiological events in the synovial membrane after arthroscopy. The levels of lactate were significantly higher in the synovial membrane than in the reference tissue (subcutaneous fat) and there was a significant increase in lactate after operation. Blood flow, measured as the ethanol ratio, was stable in both tissues. Our findings show that there was an increase in the local production of lactate since the levels of lactate in blood… CONTINUE READING
