What is medial femoral condyle grade 2 changes around the medial side mean?

What is medial femoral condyle grade 2 changes around the medial side mean?

Mild cartilage wear: The medial femoral condyle is the inner (medial) side of your thigh bone (femur) at the knee joint surface. It is covered by articular cartilage that prevents bone on bone. Grade 2 changes means that there is some mild wear and cracks (fissures) of the cartilage instead of having a smooth cartilage surface. It is mild wear and tear. This is not arthritis and may or may not lead to arthritis. ...Read more

Small meniscal root tear, high grade chondral fissuring partial thickness on the medial femoral condyle, grade 4 chondromalacia patella is this bad?

Small meniscal root tear, high grade chondral fissuring partial thickness on the medial femoral condyle, grade 4 chondromalacia patella is this bad?

Try conservative rx: Seems like most of the damage is under the patella. If you have locking you might need arthroscopy, I would first try terminal extension excercises training the quads without putting much pressure on the patella. In addition research has shown that Asperin could help the surface cartilage heal. In addition, MSM (Puritan Pride) could be helpful as a nutraceutical supplement. ...Read more

I had chondroplasty of the medial femoral condyle and the lateral tibial plateau. What does this mean? I did a squat and think I tore my meniscus

I had chondroplasty of the medial femoral condyle and the lateral tibial plateau. What does this mean? I did a squat and think I tore my meniscus

See below: "Plasty" means to fix and "chondro" means cartilage. In a typical abrasion chondroplasty, the area of abnormal cartilage is blurred away down to a bleeding bone surface with the hopes that the subsequent vascular response will stimulate cartilage regrowth. Results are extremely varied. ...Read more

Medial Knee Pain: As a podiatrist, i would team up with an orthopod and physical therapist to help you. I would design wedges for your shoes to off weight the sore area, while you work on strength, flexibility, knee bracing, activity modification, and anti-inflammatory measures.

My MRI reads. Subchondral irregularity in the weight- bearing portion of the medial femoral condyle and extensive marrow edema . Whats going on?

My MRI reads. Subchondral irregularity in the weight- bearing portion of the medial femoral condyle and extensive marrow edema . Whats going on?

Bony edema.....: This could be related to underlying degenerative arthritis or spontaneous osteonecrosis in the knee (SONK). The crucial factor is the integrity of the chondral surface and the subchondral bone. That may help determine treatment options for this patient. ...Read more

Moderate joint diffusion. minor chondromalacia and medial femoral condyle. some pericruciate synovitis about the ACL but no signs of 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
