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

3 days ago had my blood drawn and my bicep feels like its ripping, burning. What could be wrong? 3 days ago i had 4 tubes of blood drawn out of my arm (where the arm bends in front of the elbow). Nurse took blood from the middle of my arm but the blood
I : I assume you had your blood drawn from the bend in the elbow, known as the antecubital space. The biceps tendon inserts into the forearm bone, the radius. On occasion, the needle can pass thru the front of the vein and then the back of the vein. During the period where the tourniquet is on, when the needle is pulled back (since you cannot get blood when the tip of the needle is thru the vein), then the hole in the back wall of the vein will bleed, but the blood will be contained in the space where the biceps tendon is. Afterwards, this causes pain and swelling. Over the next few days, like any bruise, the blood will break down, causing discoloration around the elbow area. Heating pads applied to the area will speed up the reabsorption of blood. ...Read more
