I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?
Surgery: The retinaculum is a band that holds the peroneus muscle tendons down against the outside aspect of the foot. It provides a tunnel through which the tendons maintain their position and fulcrum action. Surgery is the only way to correct this problem. Since the retinaculum is ligamentous and has no true blood supply it cannot heal itself and thus surgical repair is necessary. See you foot doctor!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sometimes immobilization is neede in a cast or boot. A cortisone shot if often helpful, but cannot be done in some areas of tendonitis. ...Read more
What is the best prescription for hi grade partial undersurface tear of distal supraspinatus tendon?
Arthroscopic eval: A high-grade tear of the rotator cuff acts like a full-thickness tear, although there are still some intact fibers. Injections and therapy may provide temporary relief of pain at night and with activities. The most effective may to achieve long-term pain relief and improved function is with shoulder arthroscopy. See a board certified orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation and treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Pls explain what marked thickening of meniscofemoral fibres of MCL means and arcuate and popliteofibular ligament injury wit oedematous thickening ta.
Possible tear: I assume this is based on an MRI test. I am impressed with how specific the description is. High quality mri. Basicly it shows that there has been an injury to the inside and outside/back aspect of the knee ligaments. This indicates a significant stretch or possibly a tear of the ligaments that stabilize the knee cartilage. There may be some instablitiy of the knee as well. ...Read more
What's the probability of surgery of a high grade tear of the common flexor tendon at its insertion with partial tearing of the ucl and recovery time?
Will i need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?
MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF?" I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What does enthesopathy of the calcaneus at the insertion of the planter aponeurosis and achilles tendon mean?

It could also could be a localized issue such as plantar fasciitis which is inflammation of tissue and tendons of the bottom of the foot ...Read more
Following is the MRI report of my right knee,
1.Partial tear of acl
2.Moderate joint effusion
3.Tear of popliteofibular ligament.
Natural cure ?
Not likely: Ligaments have poor vascular supply, so the likelihood of complete healing after an injury is low. The acl tear could scar somewhat, but injury to the latter represents damage to one of the posterolateral corner structures which is an important stabilizer to the knee and which could predispose to further knee damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Torn = surgical, inflamed= activity modification nsaids, ice rest ? Pt also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a 11 month insubstance tear in central insertional fibres of the distal Archilles tendon heal without surgery?
Partial tears might: If it is a complete tear, no. If it is a partial tear, there is a chance that it might heal without surgery. A medical boot that limits movement of the Achilles tendon , one that immobilizes the ankle, would certainly be needed. ...Read more
