Root tear

MRI shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. will I need surgery?

Surgery

Mri
Surgery is most likely needed to resolve your problem. Meniscus tears simply do not heal on their own, regardless of conservative treatment (including prolotherapy). It is possible that your symptoms of pain, etc will improve with time without surgery...but that doesn't mean the tear healed. In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon.

Oblique tear of the posterior horn and body of the medial meniscus involving inferior articular surface and peripheral meniscal margin. W/severe pain?

See your doc

Pain
Sounds like it will not get better without arthroscopic surgery. See your Ortho for an evaluation. He/she will probably recommend surgery. Conservative treatment can help decrease the pain but will not resolve the problem. Good luck!!!

Dr. David Trettin answered:

"grade II signal within posterior horn of the medial meniscus, which may represent mucinous degeneration or meniscal bruise" is surgery needed?! HELP!

No

Meniscus
This finding on an MRI ( read by a radiologist) is fairly common .Grade 2 " signal change " does not mean u have a meniscus tear. Your history and phy. exam should be fairly obvious for a meniscus tear @ your age.'Mucinous degeneration' @ age 16 is ext. rare. Meniscal 'bruises' is not an orthopedic dx.See( w/ your parent(s)) an experienced ORS who is adept w/ knee problems.best of luck!

Mri shows tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscas near the free edge and meniscal root. 6 weeks of PT with no improvement. is surgery an option for this type of tear?

Yes

Mri
For painful meniscus tears that continue to hurt despite NSAIDs, ice, rest, PT, and or cortisone injections, the next step is an arthroscopic partial lateral menisectomy.

Dr. Nolan Segal answered:

What knee MRI mean? Lateral meniscus: abnormal anterior horn at and adjacent to the root ligament attachment. Tear and early meniscal cyst formation.

Old cartilage tear

Mri
The cyst means the year is old. The tear is in the front where the meniscus attaches to the inner front of the joint.

I have complex lateral meniscal tear w/ the lateral flap involving the anterior horn and body. Full thickness cartilage injuries to wt bearing surface?

Arthritis

Injuries
Lateral meniscal tears are always a concern, but even more worrisome when arthritis is present. The tear could be incidental. Assess the joint space with standing straight, flexed views and assess alignment. Be very cautious when discussing the source of your pain and optimal treatment.
