Synovial Fluid Analysis

Synovial fluid analysis is a group of tests that examine joint (synovial) fluid. The tests help diagnose and treat joint-related problems.

Alternative Names

Joint fluid analysis; Joint fluid aspiration

How the test is performed

A sample of synovial fluid is needed for this test. Synovial fluid is normally a thick, straw-colored liquid found in small amounts in joints, bursae, and tendon sheaths.

After the area is cleaned, the health care provider will insert a sterile needle through the skin and into the joint space. Once in the joint, fluid is drawn through the needle into a sterile syringe.

The fluid sample is sent to the laboratory. The laboratory technician will check the sample’s color and clarity, and then place it under a microscope to check it for red and white blood cells, crystals (in the case of gout), and bacteria. In addition, there may be a chemical analysis, and if infection is a concern, a sample will be cultured to see if any bacteria grow.

How to prepare for the test

Normally, no special preparation is necessary, but contact your health care provider before the test to make sure. Tell your doctor if you are taking blood thinners, as they can affect test results.

How the test will feel

Occasionally, the health care provider will first inject local anesthesia with a small needle, which will sting. The aspiration is done with a larger needle and may also cause some pain. The procedure usually lasts less than one minute.

Why the test is performed

The test can help diagnose the cause of pain or swelling in joints. Removing the fluid can also help relieve joint pain.

This test may be used to diagnose:

  • Gout
  • Infection
  • Other inflammatory joint conditions
  • Joint injury
  • Osteoarthritis

What abnormal results mean

Abnormal joint fluid may look cloudy or abnormally thick.

Blood in the joint fluid may be a sign of injury inside the joint or a body-wide bleeding problem. An excess amount of normal synovial fluid can also be a sign of osteoarthritis.

What the risks are

  • Infection of the joint — unusual but more common with repeated aspirations
  • Bleeding into the joint space

Special considerations

Ice or cold packs may be applied to the joint for 24 to 36 hours after the test to reduce the swelling and joint pain. Depending on the exact problem, you can probably resume your normal activities after the procedure. Talk to your health care provider to determine what activity is most appropriate for you.

Driver in April crash that killed Hampton doctor and cyclist pleads guilty

Driver in April crash that killed Hampton doctor and cyclist pleads guilty

McDONOUGH — The driver responsible for the April 2016 collision that resulted in the death of a well-known area doctor and cyclist pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide Tuesday.

Cleven Gerald Ingram, 43, of McDonough pleaded guilty in Henry County State Court to misdemeanor homicide by vehicle and improper passing of a bicycle in the April 6 death of 59-year-old Hampton resident John Harsch.

Ingram was driving in the Hampton area along Lower Woolsey Road on April 6, approaching Ga. Highway 19, when he came upon Harsch and his bicycling training group. Ingram attempted to negotiate a curve and struck Harsch from behind.

Harsch sustained serious injuries in the accident and later died after being transported to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Three other cyclists were nearby but were not injured during the collision.

Under the plea, Ingram was sentenced to two years probation with 60 days to serve in jail and 80 hours of community service. He must also complete defensive driving school, attend a victim impact panel and pay $1,140 in fines and $350 for court-appointed attorney fees.

Harsch was a founding physician at Southeastern Primary Care Specialists, which has locations in Stockbridge and Fayetteville and has served the community for over 25 years.

“We know we will never replace a great physician like our partner and friend, but we promise to aspire to be more like him—each and every one of us in our own individual ways, as he would want us to,” providers and staff wrote on the practice’s website in remembrance.

On April 15 last year, Harsch was honored with a ghost bike placement for which members of his training group, Southern Crescent Cyclists, and other local cyclists gathered to place a white bicycle bearing the doctor’s name at the site of his death.
