An injury caused a large joint effusion w/ elevation of the anterior & posterior fat pads on elbow. Will the fat pads heal and return to its place?

An injury caused a large joint effusion w/ elevation of the anterior & posterior fat pads on elbow.  Will the fat pads heal and return to its place?

Kind of: The fat pads are normal structures and so they don't really heal. In a x-ray of a normal elbow, they are usually not seen as they are within the joint. When the elbow joint has extra fluid in it, they float out of the joint and are visible. So when you see fat pads on an x-ray, that is a sign of a significant elbow injury even if a fracture is not seen, as in an occult radial head fracture. ...Read more

Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?

Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?

Ankle Fusion: Ankle fusion (arthrodesis) absolutely will atrophy certain muscles in the foot and leg, as there is no further motion in the ankle joint. This limits the amount of contracture and use of the muscle, which leads to muscle wasting and atrophy. Also, you will not return the blood to your heart as effectively, as you rely on skeletal muscle to push the blood back to the heart (Venous insufficiency) ...Read more

Mri said an peripheral extrusion of the medial menicus , grade 2 chondramalacia full thickness cartilage loss of medial femora condyle is this bad?

Mri said an peripheral extrusion of the medial menicus , grade 2 chondramalacia  full thickness cartilage loss of medial femora condyle is this bad?

Wear and tear...: Full thickness cartilage loss means that the underlying bone is exposed. This occurs with progressive wear and tear and is ultimately treated with knee replacement when symptoms are severe enough. Chondromalacia is the same thing but the term is usually applied to the cartilage on the back of the kneecap. Grade 2 reflects some damage - the worst is grade 4. Time to stop impact activities! ...Read more

Will a thomas hip flexor stretch cause a labral tear?

Will a thomas hip flexor stretch cause a labral tear?

No: Stretching the hips flexor distracts the joint- it gently pulls the ball away from the socket. Most activities that injure the labrum- including wear and tear- do so by compressing the joint. If you have a labral tear, you may irritate it by stretching the opposite leg (the side that you are pulling to your chest can get compressed). ...Read more
