If the Mucoid degeneration is in the meniscus then the synovial collection may be due to the joint irritation. The treatment will be to trim the meniscus and washout the joint. That will give you symptomatic relief and will also help in assessment of the joint cartilage. Hope this helps. Dr Vinu Raj MBBS MRCS FRCS (Trauma&Orthopaedics) Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
