Basically a joint dislocation is when the joint whatever it is either a knee, ac joint ankle etc doesn't line up and shifts out of place and there is a deformity of that joint. Often times dislocations need to be reduced or put back into alignment by special techniques. ...Read more
Radial head: congenital dislocation can be and is often a spontaneous difference that just occurs however sometimes it is associated with a syndrome such as foot and hip disorders, variations in the forearm and radius that can be associated with anemias and other congenital issues so certainly be evaluated to see if it is an isolated issue. Often no rx is needed despite reduced motion of elbow or forearm ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
31 yr-old with right wrist fracture via injury Oct. 2015. ORIF & median nerve decompressed. January xray: collapse of distal radial reduction.....?
Unfortunate: If the reduction has been lost, unfortunately you are probably going to need further surgery to get the fracture back in anatomical alignment. The danger in not doing this will be to develop post traumatic arthritis and a poor outcome. You might want to consider a second opinion from a hand specialist before proceeding with a second surgery if it can be obtained quickly. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers
Pea size bluish bulge above elbow. injured elbow 3 weeks ago, non-displaced radial head crack. elbow'd been taped tight for 8 days.is bulge worrysome?
Begin gentle ROM: With a nondisplaced radial head fracture, I treat only with an ace and sling. After ten to fourteen days with no change in position by Xray, I start the patient on gentle active range of motion. The important thing about radial head fractures is the prolonged immobilization of the elbow may cause permanent stiffness. ...Read more
Foosh with dislocated elbow & cracked radial head. Elbow is painfree, but wrist pain is severe. Unable to supinate or pronate & have hand weakness.

15wks postop revision rotator cuff surg w/fullthickness infra tear 1.5cm retracted superior to humeral head & .5cm partial supraspin tear, can fix it?
Revision Cuff Repair: Attempting a 2nd revision has a low likelihood of working. If you're having significant pain, weakness and limited range of motion - you may want to discuss superior capsular reconstruction or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty with your orthopedic surgeon. If your symptoms aren't that debilitating - may want to try non-op - PT, injections, etc. ...Read more

Chronic radial artery occlusion. Pain in hand arterial doppler shows interosseos artery enlarged. Ulnar artery responsbile for profusion. Advice?
Ct scan"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally"
surgery or cast? Why .
Orthopedic consult: Displaced cuneiform fractures often require an open reduction and internal fixation with screws. This is due to tarsometarsal joint instability. Additional important considerations include - intra-articular vs extra-articular and plane of the fracture. Isolated cuneiform fractures are rare and more likely to happen in association with metatarsal injuries. You need to consult an orthopedic surgeon! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Comminuted impacted fracture through the neck of the left humerus with associated mild valgus angulation of the humeral shaft. Can this heal in SLING?
In short YES. : I typically do not perform surgery on nondisplaced fractures of the proximal humerus. I tell people it is like having ice cream on a cone. If the ice cream (humeral head or ball) falls off the cone(shaft) then it needs surgery if the ice cream is tilted or slightly smashed no surgery. If it is blown to prices then surgery. ...Read more
Complete overriding fracture distal thirds of radius and ulna, bayonet apposition heals? How long?
Needs surgery: If the pt you are describing is you (26 years old) then the answer is it would most certainly be best to have this fracture fixed surgically after which it would take about 3 months for it to heal reasonably well but 2 years for it to fully remodel also check you vit d level and try to get it up to >50 ng/ml for optimal healing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx what is non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx and what will happen woith treatment
There : There are three bones in the little ("pinky") toe (some folks only have two), and they are called phalanges (the pleural of "phalanx"). The one closest to the foot is the proximal phalanx, the one closest to the end of the toe is the distal phalanx, and the one in the middle is called.... Well, it's the middle phalanx. The diaphysis of a long bone (these are all considered "long" bones even though they're not really all that long) is the middle section of the bone. Transverse means sideways, and fracture means break. So to translate med-speak to english (google should think of doing something like this), you have a sideways fracture in the bone closest to the foot in your pinky toe in the middle of the bone. Non-displaced means the pieces are lined-up nicely, and there is no need to "reduce" it (put the pieces back in alignment). So this is really good news for you.... You don't need to have the thing put back in place, and the fracture is in the middle of the bone, so it doesn't cross or involve a joint, which means you're not gonna get arthritis in the toe later on (at least not from this fracture). Bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal, and since the 5th toe has it's own motion during the gait cycle, you really can't tape a 5th toe to a 4th toe. And there is no need to put a cast on for a toe fracture. So just keep your walking to a minimum for the next 2 months or so. Now's not the best time to do your christmas shopping... In case you have that planned for this weekend like i do... And you'll probably be more comfortable in a shoe with a stiff sole, because bending the toe with every step is going to cause that little piggy to go wee-wee-wee all the way home. How'd i do? ...Read more
