The MRI suggests : complete discoid lateral meniscus with oblique tear in ant horn. Grade 2 signal involving body and posterior horn of med meniscus?

Discoid meniscus: Discoid meniscus is a developmental variant in which your meniscus (supporting cushion within the knee) is abnormally large and is predisposed to being torn. Meniscal tears may result in pain and joint locking, and may eventually lead to early osteoarthritis. You should discuss your options with an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion ,Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means

Arthritis and tear: The cartilage loss is similar to saying you have degenerative arthritis setting up in your knee. The meniscus is a cartilage cushion present in your knee, there is one present medically and one lateral, and you have a tear in one as well. I would go through your MRI with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. ...Read more

Posterior horn medial meniscus with myxoid degeneration, what is this?

Meniscal Degeneratio: It sounds like you are describing an MRI finding on a radiologist report. It means, that on imaging, the substance of the meniscus in the inside (medial) and posterior (back) part of your knee is starting to degrade. This is a normal occurrence starting in your twenties. In the absence of a tear, this finding should be asymptomatic and should not require surgery ...Read more

Radial tear type body segment lateral meniscus. Radial type tear posterior horn lateral meniscus. Can be repaired or just snipped off?

Knee scope: Most tears of the meniscus are best treated with a partial menisectomy, or "snipping" off the torn meniscal tissue. Repairs are usually reserved for patients under the age of 30, if the tear is in the vascular zone of the meniscus. ...Read more

Mri report: 1. Complex tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus; 2. Grade ii/iii medial compartment chondromalacia; 3. Grade II patellofemoral compartment chondromalacia; 4. Small joint effus?

Mri report: 1. Complex tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus; 2. Grade ii/iii medial compartment chondromalacia; 3. Grade II patellofemoral compartment chondromalacia; 4. Small joint effus?

Yes...: Your MRI report notes you have a torn inside cartilage(medial meniscus) associated w/ moderate arthritis on the inside( medial) compartment of the knee.You also have moderate chondromalacia of the patellofemoral (kneecap) joint and some joint fluid( effusion).See a board certified ors for possible arthroscopy.Your prognosis worsens w/ > arthritic change in your knee.

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus. grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus. Knee surgery?

grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in
anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus.
grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus.
Knee surgery?

Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus.So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read more

No medial/lateral meniscal tear, no discoid meniscus. There is small focus of type I intrameniscal signal within the posterior horn of medial meniscus?

No medial/lateral meniscal tear, no discoid meniscus. There is small focus of type I intrameniscal signal within the posterior horn of medial meniscus?

Grade 1 meniscal: signal USUALLY means that there is no meniscal tear. However, it's not 100% accurate. Grade 1 and 2 intrameniscal signal are tricky and have sometimes been associated with actual tears at arthroscopy. Or, your meniscus may be normal and your knee pain may be caused by something else. If your knee continues to hurt a lot, seek ortho advice. You might require arthroscopy to be certain. ...Read more

Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella, subcutaneous edema

When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more

Please tell me MRI high signal identified within inner aspect medial cuneiform and lateral aspect of 3rd cuneiform along outer anterior aspect cuboid?

I'd need the images.: In creased signal can be due to marrow edema (swelling) or stress fracture. If it is rounded it may represent a bone cyst. There are many causes of increased signal, and it depends on what pulse sequence the signal is increased. Fat causes increased signal on t1, but is dark on stir. ...Read more
