WHAT IS TENOSINOVIT?
Structures such as long wires that move the fingers of the hand are called tendons. Tendons are structures that connect the muscles to the bone. These tendons are also covered with a membrane called synovial membrane. Sometimes this synovial membrane becomes inflamed, causing the emergence of a synovitis-type disease called tenosynovitis that affects the fingers, wrist or shoulder. The type of synovitis that is formed away from the joints is called tenosynovitis.
