A study of sixty well selected cases of synovitis of the knee joint, treated by timely adequate synovectomy, followed up over a period of four years is presented. We have stressed the importance of therapeutic and diagnostic value of synovectomy. The results are found encouraging and the procedure useful in preventing damage to the articular structures of the knee joint. The best results are obtained in non-specific, traumatic and very early cases of rheuma­toid arthritis while infective arthritis benefits to fair extent.
