Summary Information: Synovial Membrane

Synovial Membrane: The synovial membrane is a layer of membrane that lies beneath the joint capsule and lines the joints and tendon sheaths of synovial joints. The synovial membrane is thinner than the joint capsule membrane and acts as a filter to keep out harmful substances from the joint cavity. The synovial membrane also makes synovial fluid, which lubricates the joint.

Conditions that can afflict the synovial membrane include synovitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, dislocations, trauma, infection, and inflammation.
