Small parameniscal cyst seen of the posterior horn/body junction of the medial meniscus. Would this cause pain during squating and climbing stairs?

Small parameniscal cyst seen of the posterior horn/body junction of the medial meniscus. Would this cause pain during squating and climbing stairs?

Yes: A parameniscal cyst usually forms as a result of a meniscal tear...it is likely that the pain you have is coming more from the meniscal tear rather than the cyst itself. If the pain persists the treatment may involve an arthroscopy and trimming of the meniscal tear. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Small parameniscal cyst seen of the posterior horn/body junction of the medial meniscus no tear seen in MRI. Can't run, squat. Is surgery the answer?

Probably: The presence of a parameniscal cyst usually implies the meniscus is at least damaged. Not to mention causing pain. Best consult with an orthopedic surgeon for your options ...Read more

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: 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! ...Read more

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

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

Surgery: 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. ...Read more

I am 26 I had a meniscus repair to the posterior horn of my medial meniscus last year new MRI showes worse re tear/cyst within, what are some options?

Several options: If you aren't having any pain or symptoms, nothing needs to be done. MRI's after meniscus repair may not be completely accurate. If you are having pain, catching or locking, a repeat arthroscopic surgery can be done to either remove the tear or do a repeat repair. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed via MRI with a radial root tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus as well as popliteal cyst (4.3 cm) - pls advise?

Use HealthTap Prime: It's hard to advise you about a complicated condition in only 400 characters. A lot depends on the symptoms that you're having, how frequently they interfere with activity, age & answers to other medical questions. In general, the medial mensicus tear is more concerning than the (large) cyst, as it can lead to arthritis if untreated. Cysts can be drained, but are often left alone. TTY Orthopedist ...Read more

Painful cyst in left knee adjacent to posterior horn of medial meniscus. No meniscus tear (confirmed via MRI & arthroscopy). Treatment options?

See below:: Most cysts in the back of the knee are due to knee joint causes, which improve as the causes is treated. So my recommendations would be:
1: do nothing except maybe pain meds, for 3 months; if no improvement, then;
2: aspiration (removing fluid) under ultrasonic guidance for fluid/needle biopsy; or;
3: removal of the cyst through the back of the knee, to get tissue for biopsy. ...Read more

Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion, Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means

Horizontal Tear of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Menistic &Suprapatellar joint Effusion, Articular Cartilage Loss & 3MM Medial Popliteal Cyst means

Arthritis and tear: The cartilage loss is similar to saying you have degenerative arthritis setting up in your knee. The meniscus is a cartilage cushion present in your knee, there is one present medically and one lateral, and you have a tear in one as well. I would go through your MRI with an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. ...Read more

I have grade 2 meniscus tear involving posterior medial horn? What treatment would you prescribed for grade 2 meniscal injury? And its being 3 month do

See Orthopedics: Your specialist the Orthopedic doctor can prescribe treatment options. They include surgery, no surgery, rehab, injection, meds to name a few. The cartilage as you know does not regrow. Over weeks the area will heal and pain will go away. You may have knee instability. Use a knee brace from pharmacy if that is useful. Take OTC ibuprofen if pain. As always see a doctor for complete care. ...Read more

No medial/lateral meniscal tear, no discoid meniscus. There is small focus of type I intrameniscal signal within the posterior horn of medial meniscus?

No medial/lateral meniscal tear, no discoid meniscus. There is small focus of type I intrameniscal signal within the posterior horn of medial meniscus?

Grade 1 meniscal: Signal USUALLY means that there is no meniscal tear. However, it's not 100% accurate. Grade 1 and 2 intrameniscal signal are tricky and have sometimes been associated with actual tears at arthroscopy. Or, your meniscus may be normal and your knee pain may be caused by something else. If your knee continues to hurt a lot, seek ortho advice. You might require arthroscopy to be certain. ...Read more

Grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus. Grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus. Knee surgery?

Grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus. Grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus. Knee surgery?

Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus. So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read more

"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! ...Read more

Oblique horizontal meniscal posterior horn tear extending to inferior surface. Can surgery give good outcome for plasterer/roofer (much used knee)?

Oblique horizontal meniscal posterior horn tear extending to inferior surface. Can surgery give good outcome for plasterer/roofer (much used knee)?

That very much: Depends on your symptoms and level of functioning now, If you are able to perform what you need and want to do now then don't have surgery. Quite the contrary, if you cannot or are in too much pain then an arthroscopic meniscoplasty in skilled hands can perform wonders. ...Read more

Meniscal Tears: Medial meniscal tears are common in the knee. The type you describe is the most common tear, affecting both the body and posterior horn. Surgery is an option if you continue to have pain along the inner part of the knee and, especially, if you have mechanical symptoms (locking or catching of the knee) during range of motion. ...Read more

Arthroscopic surgery: Tears in the medial meniscus can be repaired, the torn piece removed, through arthroscopic surgery. It is much superior to open knee surgery. A good orthopedist can also clean up some of the degenerative changes in the knee during the procedure. General anesthesia not necessary. Recovery can be difficult and sometimes prolonged, but the long term results should be well worth it. ...Read more

Yes: If the MRI report you just read correlates w/ your symptoms (medial sided knee pain, worse w/ turning, twisting, pivoting maneuvers, squatting ; swelling etc.) and a history of an injury or similar episode that could cause these problems, yes. See an experienced arthroscopist as this may be a repairable tear. Ask about potential healing 'aids' that may increase the chance of the meniscus healing. ...Read more
