Abstract

Arthritis carries significant morbidity in populations across the world and also in India. The arthritis of the inflammatory variety can be managed with medications and synovectomy if severe. Intraarticular radioisotope colloid also known as radiation synovectomy have shown good results in management of inflammatory arthritis in majority of literature. This modality remains underutilised in the Himalayan State of Indiamainly due to lack of awareness and availability issues, hence we bring forth the practical aspects of radiation synovectomy and discuss literature in this brief review.
