Are risks and outcomes worth surgery to r/o plri, bone fragment, unknown for decreasing clicking 30 times a day post radial head fracture 8 months ag?

Possibly: Unclear to me what the issue is, however if persistent clicking is present following a radial head fracture it could be related to plri or an intra-articular loose body. Examination and imaging should be able to determine this. Surgery to "rule-out" plri is not recommended. If plri is present, reconstruction of the ligament should be considered. ...Read more

Depend overall healt: It depends on your overall health. It should be a short procedure between 30-45 min and if conservative measures have not helped in over 6 months and it is interfering with quality of life and causing moderate discomfort, it makes sense to proceed with surgery. If you do not have co-morbid issues that can cause problems with surgery (liver issues, poorly controlled htn, diabetes), emphysema ok. ...Read more

Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head with extensive bone marrow edema require a surgery?

Likely, eventually!: It sounds like you probably have some avascular necrosis with subchondral collapse. Unfortunately, the controversial treatments don't usually work once collapse has started. You're likely, eventually, going to need to have a hip replacement. You should see a hip specialist to go over your options at this point. ...Read more
