How Can You Treat The Ganglion Cyst Of Anterior Cruciate Ligament
Observe vs excise: Ganglion cysts around or within the cruciate ligaments (acl & pcl) are not uncommon. The diagnosis can be made via an MRI or at the time of arthroscopy. Depending upon the location and size, the ganglion is deemed to be either incidental or symptomatic and responsible for the pain and perhaps loss of motion that may intermittently occur. Only symptomatic ones are excised/aspirated arthroscopically. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

How can you treat a tear of the scapholunate ligament and central tear of the triangular fibrocartliage?
Two different cures: Central tears of the TFCC are treated with arthroscopic debridement as the central portion does not have adequate blood flow to heal. The S-L ligament sometimes responds to arthroscopically guided percutaneous pinning, often requires repairer reconstruction to include dorsal capsulodesis. Seek care with board certified hand surgeon ...Read more
Surgery: Anterior cruciate ligament disruption is best handled with surgery. In some cases where the knee is stable and the individual is skeletally immature a decision may be made to delay the surgery. Another situation where a non- surgical approach may be considered is again where the knee is stable an the individual is not very active or elderly.

How should I treat a grade 2 intrameniscal tear within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus?
Quad strengthening: Most grade 2 intrameniscal tears do not cause significant pain. There is more of a likelyhood that you have hamstring and pes tendinitis (which sits in the same region as the meniscus). It is likely you are limping and favoring the knee (hyperextending), causing more pain in the hamstrings. With quad exercises, most of those symptoms will resolve. No need for knee arthroscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many reasons may be: The injury could have happened for the same reason that it is now difficult to heal: metabolic/ hormonal/ medication side effects. However, other things can produce chronic inflammation as well, such as fibromyalgia for example. After the injury, a proper stretching routine, physical therapy are important, but the recovery may still take over a year on occasion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

6-12 weeks: The lateral (fibular) collateral ligament is uncommonly injured, but if it is injured in isolation, it can be treated in a hinged knee brace x 6 wks and may heal on its own. Stress xrays can be used to measure if it heals. This is followed by strengthening and a return to activities between 8-12 weeks. Often, it requires a surgery to reconstruct it and the surrounding "posterolateral corner.". ...Read more
I have a horizontal oblique tear extending to the inferior articular surface of posterior horn of medial meniscus. Also small joint effusion. Can it heal completely without surgery?
No Meniscus Tears : Cannot heal on their own as the meniscus tissue has no real blood supply in an adult. Surgery will probably be the only thing that can treat it. A torn meniscus means you have torn the cartilage ring of tissue that sits between your femur and tibia in the knee joint. If it is displaced that means it has torn and a flap of tissue is shifted to the middle of the knee joint. ...Read more
Does a displacement of the meniscus root mean that it is torn? Can the anterior cruciate ligament tear from twisting your knee while standing?
