Full Thickness Tear Of Anterior And Middle Third Subraspinatus
What is the treatment for full thickness tear in the anterior distal supraspinatus tendon with 1.5 CM of tendon retraction?
Depends: Depends on if you are having symptoms or not, if it's dominant or nondominant side. Can be treated conservatively initially with strengthening of the rotator cuff, steroid injection if needed. If this fails, ultimately surgery would be required to reconstruct the tendon and put it back where it should be. ...Read more

I have a full thickness tears of the anterior talofibular and anterior tibiofibular ligaments in my left ankle will I need surgery?
Not necessarily: Basically, you have an ankle sprain. The vast majority of people who have sprained their ankle do very well with nonoperative care. Sometimes with a "grade III" ankle sprain in which the ligaments are completely torn we will use a cast to treat initially for a short time. But no, surgery is usually not required. ...Read more

Sarcoid lesions in marrow of humeral head and neck.Small 4 mm tear of the anterior fibers of the supraspinatus tendon.Rest of rotor cuff ok.-surgery?
How much pain : Are you having? If you are in persistent pain and cannot use your shoulder or have night pain, typically the tear would be responsible and surgery might be indicated. Most docs have to see the MRI to determine need for surgery. If you have little pain and or are using the shoulder without too much problems you probably dont need surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have complex lateral meniscal tear w/ the lateral flap involving the anterior horn and body. Full thickness cartilage injuries to wt bearing surface?
Arthritis: Lateral meniscal tears are always a concern, but even more worrisome when arthritis is present. The tear could be incidental. Assess the joint space with standing straight, flexed views and assess alignment. Be very cautious when discussing the source of your pain and optimal treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would a 1.5 cm full-thickness tear of the achilles tendon at the musculotendinous junction that runs vertically along the tendon....require surgery?
Should I consider surgery?
SLAP tear extending from superior posterior to anterior
inferior labrum. Possible tear of middle glenohumeral ligament. Partial-thickness bursal surface supraspinatus tendon tear. Focal cartilaginous loss of glenoid.
Rotator Cuff Tear: If you are 31 and have a full thickness tear of your suprspinatous tendon, you have a problem. The supraspinatous is one of the 4 muscles that make up your rotator cuff. Tears at your age are unusual, often due to trauma and should generally be repaired with surgery. See an orthopaedist to get it checked out. ...Read more
Oblique tear of the posterior horn and body of the medial meniscus involving inferior articular surface and peripheral meniscal margin. W/severe pain?
Mri reports there is a rupture of the mid to proximal aspect of the ACL w/ lateral displacement of fibers in torn distal stump. Is this a full tear?
The report: Should indicated whether the tear is partial or complete. Just from what you describe, i would suspect it is complete but your doctor should be able to tell you definitively. ...Read more
What's the probability of surgery of a high grade tear of the common flexor tendon at its insertion with partial tearing of the ucl and recovery time?
My MRI results for left kneew reveals: mild thinning of the cartilage along the lateral femoral condyle with out full thickness defect or underlying reactive change. There is mild to moderate thinning of the medial compartment cartilage w/out full thickn
You : You have several reasons for pain based on this report. Where is your pain? Along the inside, front, or back of the knee. Based on the fact that there is mild to moderate thinning of the articular (joint surface) cartilage in the medial (inside) compartment, i assume your partial menisectomy in 2000 was on the inside (medial) aspect of your knee. If that is the case, you have done very well for the past 12 years considering that you are a runner only to have mild thinning! grading of arthritis in an MRI (where most likely you were laying down) is sometimes a little artificial so it is a little hard to tell how bad it really is. You definitely have thinnning, and it is probably a little more advanced in the medial(inside) compartment than for age, although basing this on a report is very subjective. The baker's cyst is located in the back of the knee, so if your pain is in the back, then this is the most likely the culprit. That being said, the baker cyst is a direct result of the joint being irritated, either from the medial meniscus tear or arthritis. Pain from the current meniscus tear should be along the inside of the knee, and it may be associated with instability, locking or catching. Based on this report, you should see a sports medicine professional to discuss your options. Good luck!. ...Read more
How do I find out the grade of my tear from my MRI its oblique anterior horn of the medial meniscus extending to superior articular surface also mild degeneration of posteror horm of medial meniscus?
Incomplete tear: You most likely have a partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon, one of the rotator cuff muscles, with fluid in the subdeltoid/subacromial bursa. A bursa is a fluid filled sac that decreases friction wear tendon rubs over or attaches to bone. The tear is not completely all the way through, similarly to a partially frayed rope. The fluid in the bursa is a result of the tear. ...Read more
