 Cartilage Hyaluronic acid Meniscus Bursa

Synvisc


Synvisc is derived from compound found in the comb of roosters. It's chief component is hyaluronic acid, which attracts water and at least theoretically promotes new cartilage to develop, thereby increasing "cushioning" in the joint.

Steroid didn't do the job. The meniscus will never heal. It has no blood supply. May want to consider arthroscopic surgery. Consult an orthopaedist.

Hard to say


A meniscal tear will not heal, but a cortisone shot may help decrease the swelling Sometime it takes a week or so to have the swelling go down Realistically the onlly way to cure the problem is to do an arthroscopic meniscectomy

Is lateral discoid meniscus definitely a condition that could existed at birth or within 1 year of birth. is this a developmental condition?

Answered by:
Dr. Ahmad M Hadied

 Meniscus

Yes


No one is really sure what causes a discoid meniscus. Some doctors think that because there is an abnormal ligament attachment, the meniscus stretches out while a child is developing (after birth) and a discoid meniscus forms.

Knee Problems


You mention that you had meniscus surgery, but also note that you have had cortisone and euflexxa injections. Why ? At age 35 you are young to have degenerative changes. Complications covers a lot of things and usually implies that things didn't go as planned. If you have pre-existing arthritis then you are going to need to deal with that. Are you overweight? Really we need more information.

Will steroid injection in need help torn meniscus of knee? X-ray has been taken but no MRI of me knee.what are side effects and negatives of steroids?

Answered by:
Dr. David Trettin
Sports Medicine
 Steroid shot

May help pain , but


A steroid injection in your knee may help your knee temporarily but will not resolve your meniscus tear. In fact, some injections can "mask" the pain you are having from your tear and it's possible to tear it worse! See an ORS for exam, and possibly MRI and or arthroscopy and get it 'fixed'! Good Luck!

You need help


You have quite a few medical problems that will require on-going care. You really need help. Check with your doctor or hospital's social worker to determine what programs you might qualify for. Perhaps medical assistance? If your income is too high for that, you surely would qualify for the new "Obamacare" subsidies. You may be amazed to discover how affordable health care may be for you.

Cyst

Tear causes cyst


The internally injured knee protects itself by increasing the lubricating fluid production. The fluid created from an injury or cartilage wear when significant, can leak out the back of the knee and take up space between the calf and hamstring muscles making the area full or swollen. This can lead to posterior pain, decreased motion. Treat internal problem to stop the fluid production.

Yes


A meniscus can be replaced with an allograft (from a human donor cadaver) but there are criteria for doing it. If you have arthritis in the area, then it won't work. Most surgeons feel that there is an age limit.
