Hip Bone Structure
Inside bone/tendons.: Bone cysts r contained inside the bone, any where from simple benign @ malignant and need watching. Spurs r at the edges of the bone as in arthritis, or in response 2 tendinitis where a tendon attaches. As patellar tendinitis or where ligaments attach as in heel spurs ( planter fasciitis). Treatments r different 4 each & multiple 4 each. B followed & rx'd by an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
Treatment for undisplaced fracture or bone bruise of posterior medial talus and articular surface, and minor bone bruise distal calcaneous?
Sorry to hear: This. A scapula is a very odd bone for a primary tumor, and also odd for something traveled to that bone, but it does no get bone spurs. A "mass" needs to be biopsied. However, it is more likely to be from some other place: lung, breast (w), prostate (m)...My last scapular met came from a kidney primary. ...Read more
Knee injury. MRI report "PCL Avulsion fracture of tibia (6-7mm displacement) with adjacent tibial bone edema. fibers are intact." is surgery needed?
Yes, it should if-: -U expect 2 have a functioning knee 4 the rest of Ur life. It can only separate more, & a simple reduction & fixation will do what U want it 2 do, reunite the fragment 2 the tibia. The image is a tear & requires a major reconstruction if not fixed. U risk the fragment becoming a nonunion. ...Read more
One process is: Greater. In osteoporosis, bone resorption is more prevalent then bone formation. As a result, a negative bone balance occurs and bone loss will occur and over time osteopenia or osteoporosis will occur. Medications such as Fosamax and Boniva (ibandronate) slow down bone resorption. ...Read more
Regeneration?: Bone grafting mostly produce a regeneration effect, which meant eestablish a loss bone height (hard to achieve in horizontal defect) or bone width (easily achieved). Your jaw bone growth can only achieved with bmps (bone morphogenetic proteins) and patient should be at young age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ct scan"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally"
surgery or cast? Why .
Orthopedic consult: Displaced cuneiform fractures often require an open reduction and internal fixation with screws. This is due to tarsometarsal joint instability. Additional important considerations include - intra-articular vs extra-articular and plane of the fracture. Isolated cuneiform fractures are rare and more likely to happen in association with metatarsal injuries. You need to consult an orthopedic surgeon! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Left knee medial compartment joint replacement hardware with abnormal
uptake of tracer in the medial left femoral condyle proximal to the prosthesis.
Varies : It varies in part on the type of scan you underwent and the timing of when your knee replace my was done as well. A standard bone scan will light up with increased bone activity and would be concerning for loosening, infection, or fracture. A white blood labeled scan that lights up whilst be concerning for infection. I would discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more
Different: A bone spur is an area of bone growth where a muscle, tendon, or ligament inserts. This attachment is called an enthesis. A bone cyst is a cyst within the substance of the bone and, as such, contains fluid. ...Read more
Regarding ankle fracture, where on the ankle is the "posteromedial fracture fragment" (1 screw) and "posterolateral fracture fragment" (2 screws)?
Medial/ lateral: Medial is the inner side of the ankle, lateral the outer side. Posterior is towards the back. Hope it helps . ...Read more
Advanced articular cartilage loss in medial compartment of tibio-femoral and patella-femoral joints. Would partial (unicondylar) knee replacement work?
Maybe: This decision is best made by your own orthopedist who has direct access to your x rays. A second opinion never hurts. In someone so young, if you can get away with something short of a total joint replacement, it is always preferable to do so. ...Read more

Arthritis or fractur: Sesamoiditis is painful inflammation of the sesamoid apparatus, which is located in the forefoot most patients will describe a deep achy and sharp pain in the ball of the foot behind the big toe with every step taken. It will be difficult to perform many weight bearing activities. Most patients do not have pain when at rest. Could be treated by consevatie means. Or surgical means. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Access: Good question. 1) bone marrow is present in multiple locations including the "long bones" (arms, legs), sternum, and hips , 2) the psis - posterior superior iliac spine (hip) is relatively flat with a thinner cortex, so is easier to access and is not near vital structures (like the heart and lungs). ...Read more
"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally
do u think cast will heel up?
Probably: Fortunately the cuneiforms are pretty rigid with alot of soft tissue/capsular attachment that help form the midfoot. A cast should help to allow things to heal and ossify. This may predispose you to some midfoot pain/arthritis as you get older. A good arch support may help longterm. I'd let your orthopod determine if cast or boot or postop shoe is appropriate w/o seeing films. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
