Causes Of Greater Tuberosity Tenderness
Hole in bone: This is a finding found on imaging studies (like X-rays) of the shoulder or upper arm . Pitting means small holes or a hole in the part of the humerus (upper arm bone) called the greater tuberosity, where ligaments attach. It can mean there has been an injury to the ligaments that attached there. It may be an important clue if you have shoulder problems, inc. rotator cuff injuries. ...Read more
focal thickening and increased signal intensity of ileotibial tract near tibial attachment, favor chronic injury.
Can you explain?
There is fracture of enterior part of greater tuberosity of humerus. It is near joint. Bit I am feeling severe pain in sacpulas.
The traveler: Sounds like referred pain is the culprit, nerves from the effected site send pain to other areas, rather common occurrence. I hope you feel better! ...Read more

Injury would be the : Foremost cause of this problem. Otherwise a fracture of a weakened bone (called pathological fx) due to any cause, like a cyst, which can occur with slightest of an injury (which normally would not cause a fx). Another possibility could be referred pain from the spine. See your orthopod. ...Read more
Possible infection: There are many possible reasons for this and more information is needed to help guide you. If the skin is hot and red, this could related to a skin infection called cellulitis which normally requires antibiotic treatment. If the symptoms are more internal, it could be related to a urinary tract infection. I would recommend having your medical provider examine you and advise on treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After having hip pain due to injury, MRI showed "avascular necrosis of the hips bilaterally, right greater than left". Is this curable or permanent ?
Permanent: This is commonly associated with long term alcohol use, steroid use, or disuse of hips. Do you meet any of these categories? If not, you need to find out why you have it, including rare genetic causes, infections and medications. You should make sure you get a reason for it at your age. Some early results have been seen with stem cell replacement. Next step is hip replacement if it gets too bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At the l4-l5 level there is a diffuse circumferencial disc protrusion causing anterior thecal compresion causing heaviness of lower limb with pain?
Depends: A protrusion of the l4-5 disc is not unusual and can be associated with back and leg pain. It is quite a bit less common for it to cause a sensation of heaviness in the legs and so it is very important to make sure there is nothing else going on. A detailed exam and appropriate additional studies can usually determine the cause. Thank you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does an abnormal focal region of signal abnormality associated with the articular surface of the medial tibial plateau, posteriorly mean?
Can popliteal artery entrapment syndrome cause swelling around the ankle region with a palpable bulge along the lateral aspect of the achilles tendon?
Varies: It varies somewhat on what structures are involved. Compressuon of the popliteal artery alone would usually cause primarily arterial inflow issues, but if the venous structures are involved, then venous outflow problems can cause swelling in the leg and foot. It is probably a lot more common, though, that you also have a condition in your foot/ ankle that is contributing. Be seen if concerned. ...Read more
Subcortical foci of increased signal are present suggestive of some sclerosis and marrow reactive changes in the left hip joint. There is a subcortical cyst in the acetabulum on the right hip measuring 5 mm - what does this mean?
Is peroneal subluxation surgery worth it? Ultrasounds shows subluxation of peroneus tertius with associated reactive edema (anechoic areas).
PERONEUS TERTIUS?: A subluxing tertius? The tertius is beneath the extensor retinaculum in the same canal as the EDL tendons. I don't understand how that muscle/tendon is subluxing, and the EDL's are ok. ...Read more
