The MRI suggests : complete discoid lateral meniscus with oblique tear in ant horn. Grade 2 signal involving body and posterior horn of med meniscus?

The MRI suggests : complete discoid lateral meniscus with oblique tear in ant horn. Grade 2 signal involving body and posterior horn of med meniscus?

Discoid meniscus: Discoid meniscus is a developmental variant in which your meniscus (supporting cushion within the knee) is abnormally large and is predisposed to being torn. Meniscal tears may result in pain and joint locking, and may eventually lead to early osteoarthritis. You should discuss your options with an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Grade II degenerative (mucoid degeneration) mr signal changes at posterior horn of medial meniscus. Does this imply a tear? Surgery?

Probably not: If the signal does not communicate with the articular surface it is not torn but you have degenerative changes which can lead to a tear in the future. ...Read more

 MRI  shows complex tear posterior horn medial meniscus dem.both radial, horizontal components. Moderate size effusion Low grade tear poplitues muscle?

SurgicalRepair: Posterior Horn of the Medial Meniscus absorbs most of the weight of posterior compartment/This complex tear should be evaluated by a knee surgeon and all efforts made to repair it to prevent the further development of osteoarthritis.If it can not be surgically repaired than follow up closely for signs of pain and swelling with activities.A properly fitted Knee Brace may help too. Follow the advise of orthopedic surgeon.Physical Therapy may help as well ...Read more

Gr 2 tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus with focal tear reaching inferior articular surface and gr 2 in femoral attachment of mcl. Pl advise?

Gr 2 tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus with focal tear reaching inferior articular surface
and gr 2 in femoral attachment of  mcl. Pl advise?

Need more informatio: Classification of meniscal tears as a grade is not usually utilized. Grading is typcially an MRI finding. Grade 2 signal implies midsubstance degeneration. If the signal extends to the articular surface it can indicate an actual tear. Mri often finds things that are not symptomatic. A grade 2 mcl tear will typically heal in a brace. Meniscus may need surgery. ...Read more

Posterior horn medial meniscus with myxoid degeneration, what is this?

Meniscal Degeneratio: It sounds like you are describing an MRI finding on a radiologist report. It means, that on imaging, the substance of the meniscus in the inside (medial) and posterior (back) part of your knee is starting to degrade. This is a normal occurrence starting in your twenties. In the absence of a tear, this finding should be asymptomatic and should not require surgery ...Read more

"grade II signal within posterior horn of the medial meniscus, which may represent mucinous degeneration or meniscal bruise" is surgery needed?! help!

No: This finding on an MRI ( read by a radiologist) is fairly common .Grade 2 " signal change " does not mean u have a meniscus tear. Your history and phy. Exam should be fairly obvious for a meniscus tear @ your age.'mucinous degeneration' @ age 16 is ext. Rare. Meniscal 'bruises' is not an orthopedic dx.See( w/ your parent(s)) an experienced ors who is adept w/ knee problems.Best of luck! ...Read more

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus. grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus. Knee surgery?

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in
anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus.
grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus.
Knee surgery?

Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus.So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read more

Grade II tear of posterior horn of the medial meniscus & grad III a tear of the posterior horn of the lateral, what to do?

Surgery v. Rehab: Sounds like your knee is pretty painful. Depending on the severity of your symptoms (ie. how bad does it hurt, it is swollen, etc) and what your ultimate goals are, you could trial a rehabilitation program or head to surgery. I often will advise trial of rehab initially, though if your pain is severely limiting this may not be a viable option. Surgery has its own set of risks, so talk to your doc ...Read more

What is focal 3 mm full-thickness hyaline cartilage defect involving the
superiolateral acetabulum that partially undermines the superiolateral labrum?

Cartilage loss: you are describing an area of your hip socket that has lost cartilage. Cartilage is the smooth and slippery lining of our joints that allows us to move our joints freely. The labrum is the lining around the hip socket. Your cartilage defect is in an area that could cause pain and clicking in your hip. Good luck ...Read more
