Bursa de la rodilla

Las bursas son cavidades llenas de líquido, localizadas en sitios tisulares donde los tendones o los músculos pasan sobre prominencias óseas cerca de las articulaciones, como por ejemplo el codo. La función de una bursa es facilitar el movimiento y reducir la fricción entre las partes que se mueven.
