Shoulderpain ~2 yrs. Mri-mild tendinosis of supraspinatus tendon, 2 mm interstital tear, mild subacr-subdelt bursitis, trace glenohumoral joint effusion?

See details: The MRI of the shoulder is not particularly impressive. As various therapies have not worked, consider seeing an orthopedist who specializes in shoulder issues. There is no way to be more specific with you without having the opportunity to examine the shoulder first hand. ...Read more

Hi, I have pain in my right shoulder. I had an MRI done. Can you please tell me what the following findings mean? 1. Extensive tendinosis versus full-thickness focal tear of the supraspinatus. Tendinosis of the infraspinatus and subscapularis tendons.

Hi, I have pain in my right shoulder. I had an MRI done. Can you please tell me what the following findings mean? 1. Extensive tendinosis versus full-thickness focal tear of the supraspinatus. Tendinosis of the infraspinatus and subscapularis tendons.

Rotator cuff: Your rotator vuff is a group of 3 muscles which r on top of the shoulder blade I t attaches to the humerus by three tendons, supraspinatous, infraspinatous and teres minor. These tendons r very thick so when they tear they usually tear partially, not unlike a shoe string that begins to unravel. Subscapularis tendon helps piUll your arm back towards the midline. It and the infraspinatous tendons ...Read more

Tendinopathy near the insertion site of the supraspinatus tendon with mild ac joint hypertrophy. The ac joint generates mild impression on rotatorcuff?

Tendinopathy near the insertion site of the supraspinatus tendon with mild ac joint hypertrophy. The ac joint generates mild impression on rotatorcuff?

That is a statement: Not a question. Just putting a? mark does not let us kno what Ur question is. This is just stating an MRI reading of findings. Let us know if U had an injury or an insidious onset. Also what R Ur activities, overhead sports (swimming, volleyball, tennis, weight lifting R some).

Please try again with these suggestions in Ur question. ...Read more

Old volleyball player and weightlifter. Developed mild supraspinatus tendinosis according to an ultra sound. Is return to play possible?

Old volleyball player and weightlifter. Developed mild supraspinatus tendinosis according to an ultra sound. Is return to play possible?

Absolutely: Return to play if that is 'all u have' should not be a problem. Ss tendinitis can be treated w/ nsaids, rot. Cuff strengthening and an occ. Injection. I would say, however, that you should be thouroghly examined (w/ possible MRI as well) to exclude other coexisting shoulder problems such as instability, slap/labral tears etc. Best of luck! ...Read more

High grade partial thickness bursal surface tear distal junction supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons?

MRI diagnosis: The best results happen when a clear diagnosis is established with a detailed examination and history and confirmed with testing such as an MRI or emg, not the other way around. Be careful about having surgery based on an MRI report. Learn more: http://www. Theshouldercenter. Com/shoulder-pain. Htm

What does a "full thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon" mean?

What does a "full thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon" mean?

Rotator Cuff Tear: If you are 31 and have a full thickness tear of your suprspinatous tendon, you have a problem. The supraspinatous is one of the 4 muscles that make up your rotator cuff. Tears at your age are unusual, often due to trauma and should generally be repaired with surgery. See an orthopaedist to get it checked out. ...Read more

What does small irregularity at supraspinatus tendon mean and what could cause it?

What does small irregularity at supraspinatus tendon mean and what could cause it?

Tear, most likely: You could have a tear or calcium deposit in the tendon. It happens due to stress the muscle undergoes as you raise and lower your arm especially if you lift something heavy or do a repetitive job where lifting is constant. ...Read more

What does "thickening of the supraspinatus tendon with linear high level T2 hyperintensity mean?

What does "thickening of the supraspinatus tendon with linear high level T2 hyperintensity mean?

Acute vs Chronic: Tendonitis is an acute injury of the tendon areas resulting in inflammation and irritation noted on imaging studies. Tendonopathy is a chronic condition in which inflammation is not the issue but micro tearing and lack of healing taking place in the tendon. Consider PRP or stem cell therapy for either condition to use your own body's healing and anti-inflammatory factors to regenerate tissue. ...Read more

What does increased intrasubstance in the supraspinatus tendon mean and is it reason for concern?

Tendon signal: I assume you mean intrasubstance signal. The supraspinatus is one of the rotator cuff muscles. Depending on the degree of signal abnormality, it could mean intrasubstance tear, inflammation, or tendinosis. ...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 more

Could you advise on an operation for a fully torn supraspinatus tendon of the shoulder as I am now 75?

Could you advise on an operation for a fully torn supraspinatus tendon of the shoulder as I am now 75?

Depends: Would like more information as the treatment is really based on the state of the tendon. If retracted and with a lot of atrophy, you may be better suited with a reverse shoulder barring failure of other nonop measures. If your tendon is fixable and smaller and not with signify atrophy and you are active 75, I would advise arthroscopic repair. ...Read more

If no a full tear...: ...only fraying, it is usually just shaved to smooth it out. If it 50%or larger depending on what it looks like, it most likely will B repaired. ...Read more

Can supraspinatus intrasubstance tendon tear (7x1x6 mm) heal by itself without surgery? How long may it take for a healthy 62 years old to heal?

Can supraspinatus intrasubstance tendon tear (7x1x6 mm) heal by itself without surgery? How long may it take for a healthy 62 years old to heal?

Unlikely: Partial thickness rotator cuff tears rarely'heal'. They may become less painful occassionally in some patients who are able to 'tolerate' them. However, most progress (esp. In older adults) w/time to small full thickness tears, etc. If u are not improving w/ pt, NSAIDs, etc. Consider having an experienced arthroscopist perform repair (intrasubstance or 'taken down' and repair to bone).Pain relief! ...Read more

Tear involving the supraspinatus tendon without evidence of a full thickness rotator cuff dose it got any thing to do with pectoralis major m pain?

Sometimes: Sounds like a partial year of the supraspinatius which is actually a very common MRI finding. Most patients describe pain over the deltoid but have seen some describe pectoral pain. You should be examined to confirm it is your shoulder and treatment should be effective with pt and possibly an injection. ...Read more
