Özet

Plica is a general term for folds in the synovial membrane of the knee. Sometimes plica can progress to a pathologic level and clinically important condition. Normally, plica has an elastic structure and slides softly between femur condyles when flexing or extending the knee. If it is inflamed and thickened due to edema, it loses its elasticity and becomes symptomatic.
