Mri Arthrogram (Definition)

An MRI arthrogram is an MRI of a joint after a contrast agent has been injected into the joint. The MRI is usually performed before and after the dye has been injected. Injecting the contrast agent into the joint often provides additional information not found on a regular study. It may show small tears or holes that would be missed ...Read more

Usually if >50%: If the tear measures over 50% of the width of the tendon your Dr. will most likely recommend surgery. You can try PT but pain can limit the effectiveness. ...Read more

Very common in your-: -age group. it takes a lot of therapy above and beyond your formal sessions to gain the notion. daily passive 2-3 times a day which requires a partner. you do what the PT protocol says to do but much more intense at home. in the long run most everyone looses ,motion after surgery. the first 2-3 months are the most important ...Read more

I was in MVA. MRI shows Rotator cuff tear, labra tear and tendinitis on shoulder. EMG shows pinched nerve. Will Physical Therapy help and how long?

I was in MVA. MRI shows Rotator cuff tear, labra tear and tendinitis on shoulder. EMG shows pinched nerve. Will Physical Therapy help and how long?

Can't answer w/o inf: The space here is limited to provide a good answer to your question. You should speak to an Orthopedic Surgeon or sports medicine doctor (rehab?) to answer this question. Generally, rest, ice, & compression is used to help support healing. Anti-inflammatories like Tylenol (acetaminophen) could be used also. Later on, rehab is used when healing has started but timing is up to the surgeon. ...Read more

MRI of knee shows "Oblique tear posterior horn medial meniscus, lateral patellar plica and minimal synovial knee effusion" will I need surgery? or ?

MRI of knee shows "Oblique tear posterior horn medial meniscus, lateral patellar plica and minimal synovial knee effusion" will I need surgery? or ?

Possibly: It depends on the degree of tear, how much it is effecting your daily activities and whether it responds to conservative treatment. If the plica does not get better with anti inflammatory meds you will most likely need arthroscopic surgery to remove it, although your orthopedic surgeon will be the best MD to determine that. ...Read more

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?

Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read more

Mri showed grade 1 MCI sprain/strain..had arthroscopic surgery on left knee, found 2 tears on my medial and lateral menisci. ?

Mri showed grade 1 MCI sprain/strain..had arthroscopic surgery on left knee, found 2 tears on my medial and lateral menisci.  ?

And the question is?: Though there's a question mark in the sentence, I don't know what you're asking. So far you've said that you've got 2 tears in the medial & lateral menisci of your left knee. Are you wondering WHY MRI only showed a sprain/strain & not the tears which arthroscopic surgery claimed existed? If so, the answer is MRI of the knee is not as sensitive to "seeing" tears as direct visualization. ...Read more

Immobilize >therapy: You can order a cast boot online for very little money. $35-$65. These are all removable casts. You need it tall like a real short leg cast. Keep your weight off it. Get crutches or a walker at drug store or good will. You need to immobilize it to allow the atfl ligament to heal. This will take 6 to 8 weeks to knit itself together. After it heals you really need to get therapy to rehab the ankle. ...Read more

CT scan: Sorry to confuse you further but i think you should do a ct scan to assess the placement of you total knee components. Unless your orthopedic surgeon is looking for a specific soft tissue structure around the knee than an MRI would be beneficial. ...Read more

Mri comes back with grade II to III chondromalacia patella , knee joint effusion with ganglion, longitudinal partial tear.Mcland lcl strain. ?

Conservative Rx: Depends upon your primary complaint and whether there was a mechanism of injury. Chondromalacia(i.e.Cartilage wear=arthritis) is common and can cause swelling and pain. Collateral ligament strains/partial tears (mcl+lcl) should be managed well conservatively. Recommend seeing a pt for motion, strengthening, edema control. Am a fan of a stationary bike as well (nonimpact knee motion+strengthening). ...Read more

MRI results on L knee- Patellaofemoral, medial compartment Chrondomalacia with slight joint effusion. 1yr post MCL repair. Do I need another surgery?

MRI results on L knee- Patellaofemoral, medial compartment Chrondomalacia with slight joint effusion. 1yr post MCL repair. Do I need another surgery?

No surgery needed: The results are consistent with thinning of the cartilage in two of the three main compartments of the knee. This is essentially osteoarthritis of the knee with the swelling (aka effusion) likely a result of that. You do not need surgery for this, you need to have an effective plan for managing arthritis in the long term. An orthopedic specialist can help you create such a plan. ...Read more

Golfers elbow confirmed on mri.  Ortho recommends surgery.  What does this entail?

Last resort: Be sure that you have exhausted all conservative treatments to include pt, meds, bracing, and injections. If all has failed and the pain is limiting function and quality of life then surgery may be an option. This often is done by releasing the tendon in this area. Be sure to have all of your questions answered prior to surgery. If it means seeing the ortho again, then do it! ...Read more
