Could tendonitis in the wrist be caused by having broken a bone?

Could tendonitis in the wrist be caused by having broken a bone?

Yes: Tendonitis can either be associated with an underlying break or symptoms of what is presumed to be tendonitis may actually be those of a un-recognized fracture. Likewise for ligament sprains. So if there are unresolved symptoms a plain x-ray, at the very least, is called for. ...Read more

Are there any hand, wrist or arm fractures that cannot possibily be caused by a fall on an outstretched hand? I'm a mystery writer and need an injury that could be due to someone deflecting the arm of a gun-wielding perp.

Are there any hand, wrist or arm fractures that cannot possibily be caused by a fall on an outstretched hand? I'm a mystery writer and need an injury that could be due to someone deflecting the arm of a gun-wielding perp.

Your : Your best bet is probably what is called the "nightstick" fracture. If you need some technical help, i could help with the ways to distinguish a "direct mechanism" fracture from an "indirect" one. While an ulnar shaft fracture can be caused by a fall, the pattern would be slightly different from a true "nightstick.". ...Read more

Have slight bone marrow edema, which is usually caused by an injury. Could I have accidentally torn a ligament?

Have slight bone marrow edema, which is usually caused by an injury. Could I have accidentally torn a ligament?

Maybe: but wouldn't be likley to be related. The marrow is on the inside of the bone. Ligaments attach on the outside. A severe injury could cause both, but these would not necessarily go together ...Read more

Can a large tear in the elbow tendon need to be surgically repaired or casted. Arthritis has now set it and a bone spur has appeared on the epicondyle?

Can a large tear in the elbow tendon need to be surgically repaired or casted. Arthritis has now set it and a bone spur has appeared on the epicondyle?

Maybe.: It depends on which tendon is involved and if it is complete. Additionally, your level of function required at work and/or for avocational activities is an important consideration. However, the tendon repair will not change the arthritis. ...Read more

Can avascular necrosis of the shoulders be caused by a work related strain?

Can avascular necrosis of the shoulders be caused by a work related strain?

No: Avascular necrosis can be associated with trauma, if the blood supply to the bone is interrupted by injury. Most of the time, the cause is unknown. Certain diseases such as sickle cell anemia or alcoholism have higher rates of avascular necrosis. It is not associated with strain or sprain type injuries. Steroid use is also a cause of avascular necrosis. ...Read more

If you sprain fracture or break a bone in your wrist can this cause a blood clot in the arm?

If you sprain fracture or break a bone in your wrist can this cause a blood clot in the arm?

Depends!: Rarely, depends on type of trauma! Simple linear fracture as opposed to a complicated displaced fracture? Did u require surgery? Other factors play a role! Obesity, smoking, blood clotting deficiencies, previous history of clots? Ligament,tendon sprains are usually not associated with blood clots, good luck ...Read more

What would be the difference in symptoms between a stress fracture and a growth plate fracture cause by overuse/repetitive motions ?

Very similar: You can have swelling, achy pain with either injury. The difference would only be in the actual location of the injury. A growth plate fracture can present as a stress fracture. But a stress fracture can occur in any bone. ...Read more

Splinting: If you have pain at the base of your thumb and are under 40 you probably have basilar, base of the thumb, instability. If you are a women over 50 you are probably one of the 25% women with basilar joint arthritis. Early treatment with splints and injections help. Joint replacement is performed when you cannot tolerate the pain. ...Read more

What is bicep tendonitis and can it be caused by impact ? Also would that explain instability of the tendon at certain angles?

What is bicep tendonitis and can it be caused by impact ? Also would that explain instability of the tendon at certain angles?

Unhappy Tendon: The long head of the biceps passes through a tunnel into the shoulder. Anything that make the tunnel smaller or tendon bigger, ie swelling from an impact, can make the tendon rub. It stays swollen, it frays, it hurts. Probably not a cause for instability. ...Read more

I have a wrist fracture with the scaphoid bone broken at the waist. Can i insist that bone not be taken from my hip to fix it? Surgery was recommended by an orthopedic doctor to repair a non-union wrist fracture with the scaphoid bone broken at the waist

I have a wrist fracture with the scaphoid bone broken at the waist. Can i insist  that bone not be taken from my hip to fix it? Surgery was recommended by an orthopedic doctor to repair a non-union wrist fracture with the scaphoid bone broken at the waist

No: Depends on the fracture and how much bone is needed. One study showed bone grafting from distal radius had lower healing rates than graft from the hip. But in some selected cases (but not all) percutaneous fixation can be used with or without bone graft. Ask your surgeon what is best in you.
