Tfcc injured. Will immobilization of the wrist heal cartilage?

Tfcc injured. Will immobilization of the wrist heal cartilage?

Varies: It varies quite a bit, depending in part on the severity of the injury to the TFCC. Some people may have a very mild injury and do fine without even immobilization, while others can have injuries severe enough they need surgery. Initial immobilization is appropriate for many TFCC injuries to see if they will heal. May want to discuss specifics if your injury with your MD. ...Read more

Complete full-thickness retear of infraspinatus 1.5 cm retracted after revision rotatr cuff repair. Other rotatr cuff tendons intact.Fixable and how?

Arthroscopic: Most rotator cuff tears, even repeat tears can be fixed using an arthroscopic technique. The tear is mobilized and then reattached to the proximal humerus usually using what are known as suture anchors. Best wishes. ...Read more

Peroneal retinaculum repaired twice, peroneus brevis to longus tenodesis.  New MRI shows hypertrophic tear of peroneus longus.  What are my options?

I would try: And figure out what stresses are being placed on the tendon.....For whatever the reason it seems the peroneals have alot of pressure on them.....I would think of how to destrees or remove load from them or whatever is causing them to fail. ...Read more

High grade partial thickness bursal surface tear distal junction supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons?

MRI diagnosis: The best results happen when a clear diagnosis is established with a detailed examination and history and confirmed with testing such as an MRI or emg, not the other way around. Be careful about having surgery based on an MRI report. Learn more: http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/shoulder-pain.Htm and http://www.Theshouldercenter.Com/rotator-cuff-tear.Htm. ...Read more

Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?

Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?

Yes: the cavus is the bone position typically as in your condition at the heel. A bone cut can be made to align the heel. The retinacular repair can be done at the same time. ...Read more

Revision rotator cuff surgery failed w/complete full-thickness infra tear w/1.5cm retraction.All 3 other tendon intact. Can get cuff tear arthropathy?

Revision rotator cuff surgery failed w/complete full-thickness infra tear w/1.5cm retraction.All 3 other tendon intact. Can get cuff tear arthropathy?

Frozen Shoulder: You are at high risk of developing a frozen shoulder if the revision of a full thickness tear of the conjoint tendon of the rotator cuff failed. I hope you are in physical therapy and have a set of low cost safe resistance bands at home to reduce impingement. By the way, the three main muscles of the rotator cuff are supraspinatus, infraspinatus and Teres minor. They insert via a common tendo ...Read more

Did a torn rotator cuff require surgical repair?

Did a torn rotator cuff require surgical repair?

It depends: Many people have degenerative rotator cuff tears as we mature. Non operative conservative treatment should be the first line of treatment. This often consists of NSAIDS, injection, and physical therapy. If conservative treatment fails, operative treatment may be warranted. Ask your orthopaedic surgeon for more details. Good luck ...Read more

Without being seen ; examined/investigated, its difficult to address all your issues in a meaningful way. You need to see an orthopod or a elbow/shoulder surgeon to get the best advice, as otherwise you'll get a pot pouri of suggestions, which may or may not help. Good luck. ...Read more

Severe tightening of flexor hallucis longus tendon in foot?

Severe tightening of flexor hallucis longus tendon in foot?

Stretch: If the flexor tendon is too tight it will also cause cramping of the arch area. You need to stretch out your great toe by hyperextending it gradually (holding your big toe toward your face) also use some icy hot, etc. Make sure that you stretch this at least 2 times daily, and before and after exercise.Good support is also needed in the shoes. ...Read more

Will i need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?

MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF?" I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read more

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

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

Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Physical exam: An xray will not directly show a patellar tendon rupture, however, typically your knee cap will be further up your leg than normal. The xray will also show if a piece of bone was pulled off of the patella or tibia. The diagnosis is made clinically - you cannot raise your leg straight up while keeping your knee straight. You may also feel a defect in the tendon. ...Read more
