What are some treatment options for calcific tendonitis of the shoulder?

Calcific tendonitis: Conservatively: rest, nsaids, injection, pt, modalities. Operatively, scope debridement of the tendon with removal of calcific deposits.

Bone (Definition)

Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more

I'm suffering frm chronic calcific pancreatititis and diabetes mellitus. I'm 28yrs. What's the future treatment.

Unknown: Many people who develop diabetes as a result of pancreatitis require Insulin for treatment. This is because the beta cells that make Insulin are located in the pancreas, and are injured by pancreatitis. Loss of sufficient beta cells causes type 1 diabetes. It is important to control blood sugars to prevent long term complications of diabetes, such as eye, kidney, nerve, and vascular disease.

Hello Dr. I have got a case of acute on chronic calcific pancreatitis. Is ercp with eswl only treatment option available or any medicines??

Hello Dr. I have got a case of acute on chronic calcific pancreatitis. Is ercp with eswl only treatment option available or any medicines??

No meds: There are no medications that will help with the stones. Surgical treatment by a surgeon with experience and interest in chronic pancreatitis has the best chance at longer lasting pain relief, but is obviously more invasive than ERCP with ESWL. Hope this helps!

Briefly explain chronic calcific pancreatitis.....Causes....? Treatment...? Life expectancy.....?

Epigastric pain: Chronic pancreatitis is caused by chronic inflammation of the pancreas. No matter what the cause, the danger lies in the complications that can arise such as pancreatic-pseudo -cyst, decrease exocrine and endocrine function. Eventually, the pancreas will not work at all and you will have to take the enzymes that it usually produces to help in the digestion process. Treat symptoms. Watch etoh.

Calcific tendonitis measuring 4x1 mm involving the olecranon insertional fibers of tricep tendons. Will this heal? Risks? Advice? Treatment? Thanks

Calcific tendonitis measuring 4x1 mm involving the olecranon insertional fibers of tricep tendons. Will this heal? Risks? Advice? Treatment? Thanks

Varies: When a tendon has chronic or multiple of episodes of inflammation and/or injury, calcifications can develop. At 4x1 mm they are extremely small. They don't really heal. One way to look it is they are really just a symptom of of chronically irritated tendon. Treatment involves addressing the cause of the tendinitis.

Stroke history?: Hi. I assume you've not had a stroke or TIA; please clarify if you have. That's what you want to prevent. Regardless of your LDL and HDL, you should be on a high dose statin. Regardless of your BP, you should be on an ACE inhibitor. You should be on some anti-platelet agent (e.g., clopidogrel). You should absolutely NOT smoke (I trust you've quit!). Good luck!

Neck CT "small cortical defect along the anterior aspect of the dens just below the anterior arch of C1 with adjacent bone or calcific density." Platelets - 487. ANA is neg. RA Factor - neg. C-Reactive Prot, Quant - 79.6. Sedimentation Rate-West - 47?

Lab results: Hello ~ there is no history so impossible to comment. The CRP is non-specific and slightly up and ESR is non specific and slightly raised. Luckily the ANA and RA negative. The changes at ant ramus C2 and dens are nonspecific possibly due to osteo-arthritis. (ANA and RA shd not be routine labs!) If mets or myeloma in dd do bone scan. thanks

Is calcification in right apex (lungs) requred treatment or not and how to remove the marks which reflect in x-ray.

Is calcification in right apex (lungs) requred treatment or not and how to remove the marks which reflect in x-ray.

Rule out active TB: Calcification in the apical lungs in a TB endemic region is old healed TB until proven otherwise. However active TB needs to be ruled out if you have any symptoms of shortness of breath, unplanned weight loss, bloody cough, chronic cough etc. It can be done with sputum studies or a ct scan. This " feature" cannot be removed by surgery, drugs, diet.. It is akin to a well healed injury.

My ultrasound showed calcification within the endometrial lining and a small uterine fibroid. What is this and what is the treatment.

I have painful calcification on my heels or what they call bones spurs. Hiw di I get rid of them?

Only surgery, but...: This is very rarely needed. Is not necessarily "bone spurs" that are causing the pain. I assume your pain is at the bottom of your heel. First step is to stay in tennis shoes with an added arch support from a sporting goods store (not drugstore). Ice to heel and gentle calf-stretching. Keep your shoes/support on as much as possible to stop the pull of a ligament from your heel that is the problem.

My 10yr/o had X-ray ortho said has a displaced patella then had MRI and said what they thought was bone is calcification how is this possible to mix?

My 10yr/o had X-ray ortho said has a displaced patella then had MRI and said what they thought was bone is calcification how is this possible to mix?

A regular: X ray cannot determine if a calcification is bone or not if it is located in a place where cartilage turn into bone in children!!! The MRI separate these diagnostic possibilities......

Hope this is helpful!
