MRI show obliq tear body and posterior horn lateral meniscus, extending infr artic surface and ulceration articular cartilage patella. Surgery/Therapy?
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
These are descriptive terms usually found in an MRI or CT report to characterize the condition of your spine. The ligamentum flavum helps connect spinal segments and overlies the spinal cord. The facet joints are in the posterior portion of the spinal column and can show degenerative changes like all other joints in the body. Facet joint issues are a common cause of back pain. ...Read more
Cartilage connection: Coalitions are connections between two bones. These connections can either be osseous or nonosseous. Nonosseous coalitions are two bones that are connected to each other generally via cartilage instead of two fused bones (osseous coalition). A nonosseous calcaneonavicular coalition means that these two bones are not fused together but are connected likely via cartilage. ...Read more

mild right lateral joint space narrowing and spurring of the articular surfaces?
Osteoarthritis: It sounds like you are reading the x-ray report of someone with knee osteoarthritis. Joint space narrowing = cartilage loss. Spurring = bone spurs. Suprapatellar joint effusion = typical small amount of extra joint fluid seen in osteoarthritis. Sounds like a mild to moderate case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Bone spurs: Endplates are vertebral body structures adjacent to the intervertebral disc. Each vertebra has a superior and inferior endplate, with a few exceptions. As one ages , there may be osteophytes that grow from one endplate, around the disc, toward the adjacent endplate, forming a bony bridge between two vertebra. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Obviously you have -: -symptoms, so if the trouble is locking, giving way, the findings indicate a mechanical problem in the knee. You need to follow the advice of your orthopedic surgeon who is familiar with your case, especially if you have treated with him/her for a while. The surgery is only driven by your symptoms. The thing to remember is there is no orth prob so severe that it can't be made worse by surgery. ...Read more
Very close.: Tendonits is a bit more acute and sharply painful. Dysfunction (pttd) refers more to the overuse/overstrecthing of the tendon for mechanical reasons. A person with pttd can also have tendonitis, whereas a patient with tenodonitis may or may not have pttd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is diffuse disc bulge, central protrusion with annular fissure, ligamentum flavum thickening?
Aging changes: MRI results of the spine often sound terrible, when in fact they represent what we already know....that you are over 45 and your back hurts. What you really want to know from MRI results is if there are any abnormalities which correspond to your specific location and type of pain, which are likely to benefit from having surgery. Speak to your surgeon about his or her interpretation of the films ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis? Whats the treatment?Thanks
Chondromalacia: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
