Injection: A steroid injection into the prepatellar bursa and/or fat pad could calm your symptoms and allow rehab to be more effective. I never inject the tendon itself with a steroid, due to the risk of tendon rupture. Platelet-rich plasma injections may be effective for subacute or chronic patellar tenon problems. ...Read more

An injury caused a large joint effusion w/ elevation of the anterior & posterior fat pads on elbow. Will the fat pads heal and return to its place?

An injury caused a large joint effusion w/ elevation of the anterior & posterior fat pads on elbow.  Will the fat pads heal and return to its place?

Kind of: The fat pads are normal structures and so they don't really heal. In a x-ray of a normal elbow, they are usually not seen as they are within the joint. When the elbow joint has extra fluid in it, they float out of the joint and are visible. So when you see fat pads on an x-ray, that is a sign of a significant elbow injury even if a fracture is not seen, as in an occult radial head fracture. ...Read more

Recurring compartment syndrome, 7 leg fasciotomies + 1 foot. Fluid pockets from fasciotomies causing recurrence again, consider amputation?

I would tend : To want to avoid an amputation if possible. You need to get an answer as to why the problem reoccurs if fasciiotomies were already performed. Is this the same surgeon? Or is it being done by different surgeons? ...Read more

Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?

Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?

Ankle Fusion: Ankle fusion (arthrodesis) absolutely will atrophy certain muscles in the foot and leg, as there is no further motion in the ankle joint. This limits the amount of contracture and use of the muscle, which leads to muscle wasting and atrophy. Also, you will not return the blood to your heart as effectively, as you rely on skeletal muscle to push the blood back to the heart (Venous insufficiency) ...Read more

Pain under heel for a year when walking. MRI negative for bursitis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, thin fat pad, pinched nerve. What else could it be?

^ chronic pn @HS. bi-lat, anterior ankle/ant foot. pn>mvt. slp with feet elev under heating pad weighed dn by heavy pillow. x6mo+.  ?ankle brace?

Go to specialist: Bilateral pain in the anterior ankle for 6 months is not normal. This needs to be examined. The anterior ankle may be the result of an injured in the bones of the ankle joint, the tendons that pass over it or an impingement of nerves and vessels. Need more history but a thorough exam is necessary - may need diagnostic testing like X-ray and/or MRI depending on findings. ...Read more

How bad is a focal area suggestiv of central fibrosis within liver. Mild centrilobular cholestasis and attached fibroadiposed tissue with fat necrosis?

How bad is a focal area suggestiv of central fibrosis within liver. Mild centrilobular cholestasis and attached fibroadiposed tissue with fat necrosis?

Depends: It is impossible to evaluate these findings without knowing the clinical setting and the results of other tests of liver function. Certainly this does not make me suspect liver cancer. If you have questions about this ultrasound finding, I would ask your doctor or your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more
