I Have A Severe Chondromalacia Of The Glenhumeral Joint With Subchondralsclerosis
I have a moderate sized knee joint effusion with a root tear of the medial meniscus with mild extrusion...what is the best form of treatment?
What is mucoid degeneration of the medial meniscus does this suggest a tear? I am 48 and have extreme pain in the knee with catching and pop
Possibly : Your symptoms sound like a tear. The meniscus usually has a very solid black signal throughout when it is healthy. When you can see an abnormal signal and it goes to the surface, it is usually considered a tear. When there is signal change within the meniscus but it does not connect with the surface, it is often described as degeneration. You probably have a subtle tear, may need a scope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I made.Mri left knee and it says (mucoid degeneration of the posterior horn of medial meniscus and mild joint effusion) what is recommended treatment?
Conservative.: If your physician is not familiar with the condition, i would recommend a sport medicine or orthopedic consultation. Mucoid degeneration of the meniscus refers to a change in the molecular make up of the meniscus as a nonspecific response to injury particularly in a young adult but can be related to aging to older individuals. Treatment is typically conversative, ie, nonsurgical. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does this mean? I have a small subchondral fracture deformity of the lateral trochlear facet with prominent bone marrow edema throughout the regi
Cartilage damage: Prominent marrow edema of the lateral trochlea means that the cartilage covering the bone in this area is injured or worn thin. This is a common place to develop arthritis which causes marrow edema when the cartilage gets too thin or is worn out and bare bone is exposed there. If you had a recent injury, it could be cartilage damage rather than arthritis. See your provider for recommendations. ...Read more
Can a MRI show a bakers cyst? I have a lot of painful grinding in the knee with catching at the medial knee joint line. Could that be a meniscus tear?
I have a kissing contusion in the inferolateral patella and antherolateral trochlea with overlying articular cartilage defects. What is the treatment?
Varies: Varies somewhat based upon more exact nature of injury. Contusion simply is one way to say a "bruise". So, if you bruised an area that already had some arthritic loss of cartilage, the injury should improve simply with rest and possibly a brace. If the "cartilage loss" actually represents a displaced osteochondral fracture, then surgery is likely indicated to fix the fracture. ...Read more
I have chronic clicking and clunking of the knee joint. What coul be the problem? What is the difference of a displacement of the root or meniscus?
Could be arthritis: The clicking and clunking can be arthritis or a cartilage tear. The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that acts like a shock on a car. It goes in between the two bones. But like shocks on a car, it can wear out and tear. The second part of your question is the same thing. They are describing the part of the meniscus -- i.e. The root of the meniscus -- which is where it attaches to. ...Read more
Got an MRI today and my report said the following "inflammatory process of the subscapularis tendon and supraspinatus tendon with intrasubstance injury. Subacromial bursa fluid in sub deltoid." What does this mean? Do I have a tear?
Moderate joint diffusion. minor chondromalacia and medial femoral condyle. some pericruciate synovitis about the ACL but no signs of a tear?
Joint fluid analysis: One thing that would be helpful here is to know the joint fluid analysis. The data suggest this is mechanical, but the joint fluid can help decide if it is mechanical or inflammatory. At your age we have to keep the differential diagnosis open you need to see a rheumatologist to see if there's any other evidence of a systemic arthropathy. You can discuss this with your physician ...Read more

I have a complex tear of my posterior horn medial meniscus at the root, tricompartmental chondral thinning and gout. What are my options?
See a orthopedist: You need to be seen and evaluated by a knee specialist. At you age, conservative care should be tried first. If the cartilage thinning is significant and conservative care doesn't help, surgery will be needed. There are options, but an evaluation will help determine the best ones for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What treatment for a MRI scan with the following conclusion:posterior third medial meniscal tear with chronic MCL sprain with mild prepatellar bursiti?
Nondisplaced subarticular fracture at the weight-bearing surface of the medial femoral condyle with marked surrounding intramedullary edema. What is sonk. I had a trauma should I be worried about?
Unlikely SONK: Sonk would have shown up on mri. You have in essence a big "bone bruise" . The natural history is not completely defined but usually resolution without long term problems can be expected. You are the correct age and sex for sonk but that condition is very rare. Keep working on range of motion and follow up with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does this mean? Surgery
What is the preffered first line of treatment for a toe with arthritis, limited mobility, and no cartilage in the joint: a cheilectomy or a MTP fusio?
Great toe: Treatment depends upon amount of damage to the articular surface .. Fusion of mtp is a bigger surgery , and is necessary if the joint Has a lot of wear . It is very effective towards resolving the pain you have . A cheilectomy which removes bone spurs is unlikely to help in the face of significant joint wear ...Read more
Xray: R.knee: small joint effusion. Mild medial n patellofemoral compartment degenerative changes with mild subchondral sclerosis. Left knee: same thing like above AND mild joint space narrowing. Can you please explain these findings thank you?
Djd: Those findings are c/w degenerative joint disease,ie your knee has some wear on the ant and medial sides. As the cartilage wears down the joint space gets narrowed. the bone directly under the space thickens (sclerosis) in response to increased load. Inflammation leads to swelling (effusion). These are early signs of degenerative joint disease. You're on young side to have arthritis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can someone explain the function of the sc joint in relation to a first rib ligament/cartilage tear and subluxation of the first rib? Thanks! :)
Complicated anatomy : The first rib articulates (connects to) the front of the body at the sternum. This is typically slightly below the sc joint but there are ligamentous and connective tissue connection to all three. This joint (1st rib/sternum/clavicle) acts as a connection of the upper extremities to the trunk and plays a part in breathing and other motions. Any disruption in these can lead to problems/pain. ...Read more
