I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?
Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Shoe Inserts and Hip: Subtle changes in shoes, insoles and orthotic devices can cause and help problems up the leg. If you simply switched an old shoe insert with a new insert, that alone probably did not cause the problem. My first guess would be that the shoes overall are beginning to break down and replacing the insoles was too late to help a developing hip problem. I would get a new shoe and test out this theory. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Treatment for radial & longitudinal tears of the posterior horn medial meniscus, severe knee osteoarthrits moderate joint effusion, diffuse synovitis?
