In any compartment with stiff walls the excess pressure of fluid within is determined by a combination of the volume of fluid and the elasticity of the walls. The elastance of the space as a whole can be represented as a change in pressure for unit change in volume (dP/dV or mm. Hg/ml.). It follows that within the knee joint higher pressures will develop in the presence of effusions and when the elasticity of the joint capsule is increased. Thce intra-articular pressure, that is the pressure in… CONTINUE READING
