Achilles Tear Vs Rupture
I have complete rupture of the supraspinatus tendon w/ medial retraction. Interstitial delaminating tear of infraspinatus tendon. Severe tendinosis of subscapularis tendon w/bursal side fraying. Interstitial tear of supraspinatus tendon at the insertion.
Your question is???: What is your question? Making a statement is not asking a question. Ii assume you have discussed your options with an orthopedist. ...Read more
Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella, subcutaneous edema
When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more
Be seen: The patellar tendon connects the knee cap to the tibia. Without your patella tendon, you can not straighten your knee and it would be difficult to walk. A partial tear means it is not completely torn, but a high grade means it is pretty close to a complete tear. It is probably going to need to be fixed or you may have a poor outcome. Thank you. ...Read more
Revision rotator cuff surgery failed w/complete full-thickness infra tear w/1.5cm retraction.All 3 other tendon intact. Can get cuff tear arthropathy?
Frozen Shoulder: You are at high risk of developing a frozen shoulder if the revision of a full thickness tear of the conjoint tendon of the rotator cuff failed. I hope you are in physical therapy and have a set of low cost safe resistance bands at home to reduce impingement. By the way, the three main muscles of the rotator cuff are supraspinatus, infraspinatus and Teres minor. They insert via a common tendo ...Read more
Direct trauma: Achilles tendon injuries are very catastrophic. Usually occurs when the foot is in a fixed plantargrade position and the tibia (shinbone) externally rotates rapidly, and the foot does not release from its flexed state. Injuries for achilles tendon ruptures also take the longest to resolve, which can be from 8-20 weeks, depending on the amount and time of damage to the tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I consider surgery?
SLAP tear extending from superior posterior to anterior
inferior labrum. Possible tear of middle glenohumeral ligament. Partial-thickness bursal surface supraspinatus tendon tear. Focal cartilaginous loss of glenoid.
Awful: A full blown true rupture leaving a depression in the tendon called a dell may require surgery. An MRI will help make that decision. A partial rupture or tear may not. The latter will need immobilization, non weight bearing, rest, elevation, ice, and meds... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, usually: If the blood supply is good to the area and if pressure is taken off the achilles tendon, it will usually heal. However, it takes a long time for tendons to mend and they always mend with scar tissue. Some people heal unremarkably and others always have some swelling and tenderness, depending on how well the tendon heals. If tear is large, surgery may be required to repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High grade partial thickness bursal surface tear distal junction supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons?
MRI diagnosis: The best results happen when a clear diagnosis is established with a detailed examination and history and confirmed with testing such as an MRI or emg, not the other way around. Be careful about having surgery based on an MRI report.

Mri of shoulder mild partial intrasubstance tearing of supra, infras and subsc tendon insertions". Tendinopathy of the intra-articular bicep tendon ?
Diagnosis?: Don't make the mistake of determining your treatment based on an MRI reading. If you don't already have a diagnosis that makes sense to you on an anatomic basis prior to the mri, consider a second opinion. For instance, the number of changes you describe may be because of chronic untreated instability. Learn more: http://theshouldercenter.Com/shoulder-pain.Htm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
