|Treatment of inflammatory bursitis of iliopsoas.|
The bursas are flattened sacs that act as a protective cushion, overlap between the bones and muscles (deep bags) or between bones and tendons / skin (superficial bags).
These synovial sacs are filled with small amounts of liquid to facilitate movement during muscle contraction.
The deep bags, such as subacromial and iliopsoas bag, are located in the band.
The surface bags, such as the olecranon and prepatellar, are located in the subcutaneous tissue.
Humans have about 160 bags.
The bag of iliopsoas is the largest bursa in the body and communicates with the hip in 15% of people.
The aim of our study was to analyze the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided injection of corticosteroids in inflammatory bursitis of iliopsoas by testing pre- and post-treatment RM imaging and evaluating the VAS scale.
