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 more
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

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. Seek expert advice from an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
Could be simple: As long as your knee is stable and your acl is intact you don't need to worry. You may just needs some rest and therapy ...Read more
Yes (to an extent): Any surgery will cause post-operative pain. There will also be discomfort with the therapy that is required after the procedure. Different patients have different pain thresholds, but usually, the pain post-operatively isn't so bad (from the feedback I've gotten from my patients who have had the surgery). ...Read more
Would depend on trea: This would depend on treatment options you choose. The cruciate injury is a major debilitating injury that can be rehabbed to about 80% of pre injury status when properly evaluated and treated. Would suggest that he be seen by a specialist as soon as possible. ...Read more
Orthopedic consult: The anterior cruciate ligament is a key ligament in the knee for stability both going front and back as well as rotationally. Your child would have complaints of giving way, pain, swelling and lack of confidence in using that knee during activity. I recommend you see your local orthopedic surgeon and if possible one fellowship trained in sports medicine. ...Read more
I am awaiting surgery for anterior cruciate ligament tear. Are there any exercises that I coulddo?
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
The ACL may tear when certain movements of the knee place a great strain on the acl. Hyperextension of the knee, that is, if the knee is straightened more than 10 degrees beyond its normal fully straightened position, is a very common cause of an torn acl. This position of the knee forces the lower leg excessively forward in relation to the upper leg.

Giving way: Classically people describe a buckling, twisting, or giving way episode in the knee, with a popping feeling. Sometimes the pop is audible. Commonly there is swelling, limited ability to walk, and then associated stiffness+pain; as swelling goes down, pain will go away, but instability (wobbly/buckling) feeling with quick changes of direction persists; some people have minimal pain/swelling. ...Read more
Significant: Acl tear is a significant injury to the knee. It can significantly affect the function of the knee. Especially pivoting activities. Acl injury can occur in motor vehicle accidents, falls, and most commonly in sports. The acl can tear in an injury involving knee contact with someone or something or without any knee contact. Acl is generally fixed to restore the best possible function to your knee. ...Read more
Meniscal tears.: You may have associated meniscal tears, that can be responsible for the pain. Or, the swelling of the knee itself, can be causing the pain. ...Read more
Difficulty: One can have pain with walking and especially going up and down steps. There may be decrease in range of motion, swelling, effusion. There may also be locking of knee and giving out of knee. ...Read more
Reconstruction: Treatment of torn ACL depends on patient age, activity level and expectations. High level athletes who are engaged in pivoting, cutting sports (soccer, football, basketball) have a greater change to return to their prior of level of activity with reconstruction. For patients who are lower demand, a trial of hamstring strengthening program and bracing may be reasonable. ...Read more
Depends: In general it leads to instability of the knee when completely torn and should be repaired or braced to avoid furthervinjury to other structures in her knee. If only the posterior bundle is injured, however, the knee remains stable. The most important factor is her age. If she is past maturity above applies, otherwise she may respond to primary repair. ...Read more
2-3 months: Intensive therapy to regain range of motion, reduce swelling and then regain strength will last between 2-3 months. Long term strengthening will be necessary, for best results, for up to 1-2 years after surgery. This long term strengthening can be done at home or at the gym. ...Read more
Swelling/bone bruise: Initial pain after tearing your acl is due to 3 main reasons. 1) bleeding from the tear fills the knee exerting pressure on the capsule which is very sensitive to pressure. 2) the forces that cause the tear cause the femur and tibia to smack together leaving characteristic bone bruises in the femur and tibia. 3) additional injuries, most commonly meniscus tears can add to the pain of acl injury. ...Read more
Pain, swelling: The majority of ACL tears are noncontact injuries. The classic history is when a person plants and twists a leg, or rapidly changes directions and then hears or feels a pop in the knee. Initial pain tends to be severe, but in some, only lasts a few minutes. Swelling tends to occur within the first hour and most limp for days to weeks. The knee then often gives out or buckles, signs of instability. ...Read more
ACL Reconstruction: Yes, you can still have an acl reconstruction. Acl tears do not heal on their own & having it replaced can help you maintain a healthy/ active lifestyle in the years to come. The acl is a major knee stabalizer, and can provide security to your knee that may prevent further damage to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, articular cartilage, meniscus, & bones when compared to a "loose knee" ...Read more
Yes: The anterior cruciate ligament is the main stabilizing ligament of the knee. With acl deficiency the knee will tend to "give-way" with quick stops and starts or changes in direction. Giving way episodes can damage the joint line further and tear meniscal tissues. Without a functioning acl sporting activities should be severely limited. Reconstruction is recommended for the athletically active. ...Read more
Most choose surgery: Sugical reconstruction is the most common treatment, although some will elect to only treat with physical thearpy. When pursuing surgery there are many graft options, but despite which one the surgeon may use the procedure includes putting tunnels in the bones of the knee and threading the graft through to replace the original ligament. Trying to reconnect the ends of the original lig doesn't work. ...Read more
Acl recon: Acl reconstructions should be performed by Orthopaedic surgeons with experience doing them! Look on Yelp or health grades. Ask your primary dr as well ...Read more
