Biochemical Changes of the Synovial Liquid in Corpses with Regard to the Cause of Death. 1: Calcium, Inorganic Phosphorus, Glucose, Cholesterol, Urea Nitrogen, Uric Acid, Proteins, and Albumin
We present in this work a study about biochemical changes of the synovial liquid in 100 corpses with regard to the cause of death. The results obtained in the different groups of causes of death show that the biochemical parameters were modified postmortem although we think that this modification is related more directly to the duration of the pathological process that leads to death than with the nature of the process itself.
