Lysis of adhesions

The surgical procedure of breaking down the strands of material which can form inside the joint if the knee is inflamed; These strands are called 'adhesions'.

If allowed to remain intact, adhesions may become infiltrated with scar-tissue cells and form real scarring, limiting knee motion - a condition called 'arthrofibrosis'.

Lysis of adhesions is usually performed using keyhole surgery (arthroscopy).
