Knee Sanguine Effusions in Sports Trauma (Haemarthrosis)

Dorian Meta*, Ilia Mazniku, Artan Pogoni

Increased effusions or accumulations of fluid in the knee joint can be the result of trauma, excessive overload of the knee (overuse) or a consequence of systemic diseases. From the point of view of linking intra-articular effusions, especially hematic ones, with competitive or amateur sports activity, this phenomenon is more common than diagnosed. The fact that many athletes suffer from a lack of performance of their knee joints, talks about untreated injuries in accidents and previously suffered in sports activities or not at all. The other side of the problem is related to the purpose of presenting this material, the first in the Albanian professional literature, even as an obligation and scientific reflection of this common phenomenon in sports activities, which should be evaluated very seriously after hematic accumulation, or haemarthrosis, is just the tip of the iceberg while others are hidden and need to be identified and treated.
