Arthrocentesis in companion animal medicine
Arthrocentesis, especially for synovial fluid collection and analysis, is an integral part of any diagnostic joint evaluation in companion animal medicine. Although it is a simple, quick and inexpensive technique, which also requires little in the way of expertise or special equipment, it is a much under-employed procedure in veterinary diagnostics and/or therapeutics. Knowledge of joint anatomy, aseptic conditions and strict adherence to principles of the technique are essential for an uncomplicated arthrocentesis.
