Achilles Tendon Scar Tissue
Scar tissue: This is the usual nightmare for plantar fibroma excision. If this occurs i usually start aggressive physical therapy with steroid injections. I also add the cutting edge laser which breaks down scar tissue (10 sessions, once a week, 15 min a session). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
Possibly yes: Signs of inflammation such as swelling, warmth, and pain occur in a person with achilles' tendonitis. Damaged tendons can become calcified (get deposits of calcium), thicker than normal, less elastic (not as stretchable), and fibrotic (form scar tissue fibers). Tendon rupture occurs when a sudden shear stress force is applied to an already inflamed or damaged tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Surgeon said may use nearby ligament, bone periosteum or fascia to reconstruct ankle extensor retinaculums. Would periosteum use be extremely painful?
Not necessarily: Any of the soft tissues can be utilized. There would be discomfort following the procedure. ...Read more
Physical exam: An xray will not directly show a patellar tendon rupture, however, typically your knee cap will be further up your leg than normal. The xray will also show if a piece of bone was pulled off of the patella or tibia. The diagnosis is made clinically - you cannot raise your leg straight up while keeping your knee straight. You may also feel a defect in the tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stretch: If the flexor tendon is too tight it will also cause cramping of the arch area. You need to stretch out your great toe by hyperextending it gradually (holding your big toe toward your face) also use some icy hot, etc. Make sure that you stretch this at least 2 times daily, and before and after exercise.Good support is also needed in the shoes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diagnosis? Grade 2 chondromalacia, mucoid degeneration to acl, subchondral cyst tibial spines,soft tissue swelling in prepatellar- soft tissue lateral
Diagnosis MRI?: Looks like a summary of an MRI Report. Grade 2 chondromalacia means you have some like age and activity related softening or wearing away of the articular cartilage in your knee. Age related changes to your ACL, but not a tear. Soft tissue swelling usually implies some swelling or bruising in the fat beneath your skin, but outside your joint ...Read more
Immediately: Not exactly sure what you are asking but scar tissue forms fairly soon after any type of surgery. I am guessing you are concerned moreso with scar tissue that can be a problem after the surgery. Typically after flexor tendon surgery esp a 2nd one, you should be attending dedicated hand therapy which will help regain your motion and function safely, and limit the deleterious effects of scar tissu. ...Read more
During foot reconstruction for foot compartment syndrome damage, cut plantar fascia off my heel bone. Will it scar back to heel or remain floating?
Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?
Peroneal retinaculum repaired twice, peroneus brevis to longus tenodesis. New MRI shows hypertrophic tear of peroneus longus. What are my options?
I would try: And figure out what stresses are being placed on the tendon.....For whatever the reason it seems the peroneals have alot of pressure on them.....I would think of how to destrees or remove load from them or whatever is causing them to fail. ...Read more
Irritat'n of cover'g: Initially, irritation of the outer covering of the tendon called the paratendon causes a paratendonitis. The word paratendonitis simply indicates that there is inflammation around the tendon. Inflammation of the tendocalcaneal bursa may also be present with the paratendonitis.Either of these conditions may be due to repeated overuse, or ill-fitting shoes that rub on the tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
Tenosynovitis: Tenosynovitis means inflammation of the internal lining/membrane of a tendon. The Flexor Hallucis Longus or Flexor Digitorum longus tendons run along the medial ankle to the bottom of the foot to each respective toe. The FHL and FDL tendons, along with the Posterior Tibial Tendon and a Neurovascular bundle run in the tarsal canal, so, yes, inflammation of any of these tendons can affect Tarsal T ...Read more
