Oblique tear of the posterior horn and body of the medial meniscus involving inferior articular surface and peripheral meniscal margin. W/severe pain?

See your doc: Sounds like it will not get better without arthroscopic surgery. See your ortho for an evaluation. He/she will probably recommend surgery. Conservative treatment can help decrease the pain but will not resolve the problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion ,Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means

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

What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?

What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?

Nothing: There is nothing that would "diffuse" a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (acl). Acl is one of only few ligaments in our body that is entirely intra-articular which means it is not within soft tissues but is sitting inside the joint space with some surrounding joint fluid. This atmosphere makes it impossible for the ACL to heal (which I am assuming what you meant by diffuse). ...Read more

Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?

Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?

Surgery : Surgery is most likely needed to resolve your problem. Meniscus tears simply do not heal on their own, regardless of conservative treatment (including prolotherapy). It is possible that your symptoms of pain, etc will improve with time without surgery...But that doesn't mean the tear healed. In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon. ...Read more

Radial tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, involving its inner half. Degenerative change of the body of the medial meniscus also noted. The prominent high signal seen posterior and posteromedial to the medial meniscus is suggestive of men

Arthroscopic surgery: Tears in the medial meniscus can be repaired, the torn piece removed, through arthroscopic surgery. It is much superior to open knee surgery. A good orthopedist can also clean up some of the degenerative changes in the knee during the procedure. General anesthesia not necessary. Recovery can be difficult and sometimes prolonged, but the long term results should be well worth it. ...Read more

My mothers MRI came back showing chronic degenerative tear of the acl, chronic degenerative tear of the posterior horn of the medial medial meniscus.?

Acl tear: Older patients will sometimes have MRI readings showing "acl tears." this should be correlated with the patient's symptoms. If an acl tear is present in an "older" patient try treating the patient with an initial conservative course including brace and pt. ...Read more

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

Does a partial tear of the medial meniscus posterior horn root need surgery?

Meniscus: If symptomatic then the answer would be yes. Not all meniscus tears especially partial ones require surgery. However please understand that the meniscus has very poor healing capacity on its own. ...Read more
