Doctor insights on:
Medial Meniscus Degeneration
Meniscal Degeneratio: It sounds like you are describing an MRI finding on a radiologist report. It means, that on imaging, the substance of the meniscus in the inside (medial) and posterior (back) part of your knee is starting to degrade. This is a normal occurrence starting in your twenties. In the absence of a tear, this finding should be asymptomatic and should not require surgery
Medial meniscus: Sounds like a knee problem form wear and tear and age.
I have medial meniscus grade 1 degeneration signal on my both knee shown in my mri. What must I do?
I have mild knee joint effusion with soft tissue swelling on left. P.H.Medial meniscus grade 1 degeneration signal on both. Acl sprain on right. What?
Orthopedic: I would seek a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon.
MRI shows a fairly extensive tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus and advanced mucoid degeneration of ACL. Will this require surgery? Thanks!
Probably: But some people successfully rehab it. But it is between you and your orthopedist and the amount of expected activity that will hel
Meniscus medial posterior horn degeneration grade 2 is it a serious injury? Any possibility to heal?
Unlikely: Meniscus tears will not heal, but they may not be symptomatic. A lot depends on your symptoms and physical exam.See 1 more doctor answer
Grade II degenerative (mucoid degeneration) mr signal changes at posterior horn of medial meniscus. Does this imply a tear? Surgery?
Probably not: If the signal does not communicate with the articular surface it is not torn but you have degenerative changes which can lead to a tear in the future.
What is mucoid degeneration of the medial meniscus does this suggest a tear? I am 48 and have extreme pain in the knee with catching and pop
Possibly: Your symptoms sound like a tear. The meniscus usually has a very solid black signal throughout when it is healthy. When you can see an abnormal signal and it goes to the surface, it is usually considered a tear. When there is signal change within the meniscus but it does not connect with the surface, it is often described as degeneration. You probably have a subtle tear, may need a scope.See 1 more doctor answer
What does mucoid degeneration of the medial meniscus mean? Seen on MRI. Also what does truncation mean of the posterior horn attaching roots mean? Help
How do I find out the grade of my tear from my MRI its oblique anterior horn of the medial meniscus extending to superior articular surface also mild degeneration of posteror horm of medial meniscus?
Grade 3: Mri signal classification of meniscus is as follows. Grade 1 globular intrameniscal signal grade 2 linear intrameniscal signal grade 3 linear signal extending to the articular surface.
"grade II signal within posterior horn of the medial meniscus, which may represent mucinous degeneration or meniscal bruise" is surgery needed?! help!
No: 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!
I'm a dancer. Have knee pain since 1yr. Initial mri-grade 1 intrasubstance ACL tear. Recent MRI -mucoid degeneration in medial meniscus. A 2nd damage?
MRI report: This is an MRI report; see your orthopedic surgeon for clinical correlation. Your knee pain may not be related to these MRI findings (i.e.U may have tendinitis).Injuries to the meniscus and acl in your age group are usually clinically obvious on exam. Grade 1 signal in a meniscus is usually a normal finding and mucin outs degeneration would be rare in a 24 yr. Old. Good luck!
I made. Mri left knee and it says (mucoid degeneration of the posterior horn of medial meniscus and mild joint effusion) what is recommended treatment?
Conservative.: If your physician is not familiar with the condition, I would recommend a sport medicine or orthopedic consultation. Mucoid degeneration of the meniscus refers to a change in the molecular make up of the meniscus as a nonspecific response to injury particularly in a young adult but can be related to aging to older individuals. Treatment is typically conversative, ie, nonsurgical.See 1 more doctor answer
Few: This is the most commonly performed ortho surgery. Risks include bleeding, pain, infection, damage to nerves (specifically the saphenous) and blood vessels, worsening arthritis down the road if part of the meniscus must be removed, failure of a repair to heal, chance of recurrent tear, failure of pain to resolve. These are all very infrequent and this is typically a very safe procedure.
Expectations: These surgeries are almost always done arthroscopically - through small incisions - therefore there is usually little recovery time. In rare cases, a meniscal repair is done, which can be more painful, and which usually requires protected weightbearing, which then lengthens the recovery time. Other than that, most patients do fine with medial meniscus surgery and recover quickly. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
Yes yes: To answer this again yes it is a tear and it can be treated surgically you should really see and discuss this with an orthopedic surgeon fact to face to get this problem delt with best of luck to you.
