Doctor insights on:
Torn cartilage: In the knee joint there are two types of cartilage, articular cartilage and meniscal cartilage. The meniscus is a triangular shaped piece of fibro-cartilage that sits between the femur and tibia. The meniscus can tear as a result of injury or secondary degenerative changes that occur over time. Because the meniscus cartilage dies not have it's own blood supply, tears often need surgery to fix. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
TMJ Movement: The articular disc or meniscus is a biconcave structure that is positioned above the condyle of the mandible and the glenoid fossa of the temporal bone. The disc allows for a smooth or gliding movement of the condyle in the normal tmj. If the meniscus or disc is abnormally positioned or deformed, it can be a major source for pain and TMJ pathology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A horizontal line of high signal intensity seen not extending to superior or inferior articular surface of posterior horn of medial meniscus but extend to meniscocapsular end...is this described as tear?
Probably not: MRI readings are never exact. This one is vague and indicates possible inside damage to the meniscus. When it does not extend to the superior or inferior articular surface then it is not a standard meniscal tear which does extend to one or both of those surfaces. This condition might be causing you problems, but arthroscopic surgery is not truly indicated unless your knee is locking. Good luck! ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
