How do you know if you have a pseudobursa?
Doctor Answers 1
You may have torn a suture with that sudden movement which could have released some of the underlying fascial plication. It could have also caused a little bleeding or a little seroma. A fluid collection with a wall around it (pseudobursa), can be suspected on physical exam and confirmed with imaging like an ultrasound.
