Tendinitis: Description

A tendon sheath (vagina synovialis, vagina tendinis) is a sheath-like structure around a tendon that protects it and reduces friction with adjacent tissue such as ligaments and bones. It is filled with synovial fluid (synovial fluid).

Distinguish from a tendonitis is tendinitis (tendinitis) itself.

Tendinitis can in principle occur on any true tendon sheath. In some parts of the body, however, a tendon sheath is especially often inflamed: hand, forearm and foot. Known forms of tendonitis on the hand are Schnappfinger and Tendovaginitis de Quervain.
