MRI of knee shows "Oblique tear posterior horn medial meniscus, lateral patellar plica and minimal synovial knee effusion" will I need surgery? or ?

Possibly: It depends on the degree of tear, how much it is effecting your daily activities and whether it responds to conservative treatment. If the plica does not get better with anti inflammatory meds you will most likely need arthroscopic surgery to remove it, although your orthopedic surgeon will be the best MD to determine that. ...Read more

Per l knee MRI report, what is grade 4 medial compartment chondromalacia with high-grade, full thickness condral loss? Mild patellar tendinosis?

Per l knee MRI report,  what is grade 4 medial compartment chondromalacia with high-grade, full thickness condral loss? Mild patellar tendinosis?

Cartilage loss: We all lose cartilage to some degree as we age, which is the cause of arthritis. There is a spectrum from mild thinning, to complete absence. Full thickness chondral loss refers to an area where there is no cartilage. Mild patellar tendonosis refers to a mild inflammation in the patellar tendon, the tendon which connects your patella (knee cap) to your tibia (shin). ...Read more

Chondromalacia: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read more

Can someone explain this.. Moderate patellar chondromalacia w/ prominent cartilage fissuring in the lateral patellar facet?

Cartilage wear: Chrondromalacia means softening of the cartilage that covers the bone. It is a form of cartilage injury or degeneration. Moderate is a grade worse than "mild", but not as significant as "severe". The lateral patellar facet is the outside and back part of the patella. Fissuring means there is a groove-like defect in the cartilage. ...Read more
