Fixed Defect Involving The Basel Inferior
What is focal 3 mm full-thickness hyaline cartilage defect involving the
superiolateral acetabulum that partially undermines the superiolateral labrum?
Cartilage loss: you are describing an area of your hip socket that has lost cartilage. Cartilage is the smooth and slippery lining of our joints that allows us to move our joints freely. The labrum is the lining around the hip socket. Your cartilage defect is in an area that could cause pain and clicking in your hip. Good luck ...Read more
Hip -focal 3 mm full-thick hyaline cartilage defect involving the superiolateral acetabulum that partially undermines the superiolateral labrum??
Oblique focus of increased signal within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus which extends to the inferior articular surface. Surgery or not?
MRI report stated abnormally increased signal in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus extends to the tibial articular surface. Repair surgery?
There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect What do they mean?
Concern: you appear to have a limitation of blood flow to the heart during the stress of the test that you had as well as the possibility of a previous heart attack but with still good heart pump function currently. Please see your cardiologist for follow up of the limitation of blood flow seen on the current test ...Read more
What does 'small inferior apical wall defect demonstrating reversibility affecting less then 5% of the total myocardium' mean?
1 mm st depression in inferior leads. Positive stress ecg. Ischemia involved in the anterior wall and apex. Perfusion defect.?
Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex. Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. Likely will need angio and definitive recommendations. ...Read more
Englargment of the anterior horn of the right lateral ventricle secondary to the brain volume loss from the resection (meningioma tumor) meaning?
The fluid in: The brain is bigger in a shift from the loss of tissue from tumor removal ...Read more
Mri found bilaterally along the inferior lateral aspect of the basal ganglion, either old lacunar infarctions or bilateral benign cysts. Thoughts?
What does an abnormal focal region of signal abnormality associated with the articular surface of the medial tibial plateau, posteriorly mean?
What does fibrillation of the articular cartilage posteriorly at the level of the lateral plateau, abnormal posterior horn of lateral meniscus mean?
Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head require a surgery?
Interval bony consolidation of the L5 pars fractures bilaterally. Coronal alignment is normal, exception of positional leaning to the left. explain?
Ok: So, you initially had fractures in an area of the spine knows as the pars interarticularis, consolidation suggests they have now healed. The alingnment if the spine when viewed from the back is normal. I would not hesitate to go through your study with the person that ordered it as well. ...Read more
Should I be concerned about a 15x19 mm oval shaped enhancing mass involving the posterior superior wall of the distal fourth portion of the duodedum?
VQ Near segmental defect in superior of left lower lobe. greater then75%defect on perfusion, no evidence of defect on ventilation. few tiny subseqment?
Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.
Perfusion & fixed defects in the mid anteroseptal, inferoseptal, inferoapical , inferior, apical septal segments with new lbbb?Heart attack or artifact?
Global Hypokinesis.EF 39%.Large area of fixed defect in Anterior,Septal & Inferior wall.no lung uptake.RV appears normal. Abnormal Dilated LV with large fixed defect with multiple wall motion abnormalities. Put on Cardivlol & listrophil. now have increase
I have an oblique central zone tear involving the posterior body segment of the medial meniscus. It is contiguous with an undersurface tear predominatlyl
Peripheral zone tear of the posterior horn. Is surgery in my future?
Yes: If the MRI report you just read correlates w/ your symptoms( medial sided knee pain, worse w/ turning, twisting ,pivoting maneuvers , squatting ; swelling etc.) and a history of an injury or similar episode that could cause these problems, yes. See an experienced arthroscopist as this may be a repairable tear. Ask about potential healing 'aids' that may increase the chance of the meniscus healing. ...Read more
What does Heterotopic calcification posterior to the spinous process of C4. Calcification in the anterior longitudinal ligament at C4-5 mean?
Calcium: The term heterotopic ossification (HO) describes bone formation at an abnormal anatomical site, usually in soft tissue. Other than surgically removing the tissue very conservative care is the typical approach. If pain is an issue then you may have to see a specialist. ...Read more
More info needed: Are you having symptoms or problems you believe to be a result of a vsd that was closed? A vsd may cause problems due to excess blood flow through the lungs, or due to dilation ("stretch") of left sided heart structures. Closure of the vsd, if early enough, reverses these problems, but if closed in adolescence or adulthoot, some problems may not disappear. Many factors contribute. ...Read more
What type?: Repair depends on the type of ventricular septal defect .. There's perimembranous, av canal type, subaortic and muscular. Need to know if double outlet right ventricle or left ventricle present. Is there a concomitant right ventricular outflow tract obstruction?. Need to stop the heart and saw a patch, were to open the heart depends on type of vsd and associated defects. Timing of repair varies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lumbar Pars Defect: The defect is a stress fracture of the posterior portion of the spine that connects the facet joints and lamina with the anterior vertebral body at the level of the pedicle. This process is also known as a spondylolysis. It occurs in 5% of the general population but can be as high as 15% in certain athletes like gymnasts and football lineman due to the lumbar hyperextension. ...Read more
Pars defect: Bilateral pars defect also commonly called spondylolysis is a stress fracture near the joint of the spine. This usually occurs in the lower lumbar spine and can be painful and cause instability. This defect often occurs during the teenage years but can persist into adulthood and become symptomatic later in life. ...Read more
Reversible: We use the terminology with respect to nuclear perfusion images of the heart muscle. When there is an image defect that does not fill in on follow up imaging, we call this nonreversible or fixed. It usually suggests scar of the myocardium rather than temporary decrease in blood flow to the area. ...Read more
Many causes...: Unfortunately, there is no one specific cause. We currently state the cause is multifactorial. There are some gene defects which cause heart defects, but other defects are caused by multiple factors. Please discuss this with your doctor if you are concerned about potential heart defects in you or someone else. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Abnormal tissue Form: In simplistic terms a bd might be considered any abnormality found in a baby at birth. A better, more specific idea is a failure of a tissue or structure to form properly in fetal development.(cleft palate). A "disruption" can create a bd -loss of fingers to amnionic bands. Chromasome defects lead to several bd's like heart defects. ...Read more
Alcohol: The avoidable agent best known for producing a variety of birth defects is alcohol.The spectrum of defects varies considerably with the amount consumed during pregnancy.The most involved are born to alcoholic mothers while as few as 2 drinks a day has a a significant risk. Defects vary from decreased intellect, heart, skeletal, facial and numerous other features., . ...Read more
Environment: although some birth defects are inherited others come from harmful environmental factors, and others are a result from complex interaction of genes and environmental factors. In about 50% of the cases the causes are unknown. Some birth defects can be prevented by not drinking or smoking or using street drugs during pregnancy. Talk to a healthcare provider about medications you are taking as well ...Read more
