Oblique Tear Of The Posterior Horn Of The Medial Meniscus

It depends: Arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn meniscus if the tear is in a location that can be repaired or excision of the loose piece of the meniscus if the symptoms are that of pain, clicking or giving out of the knee.

I have a oblique grade 3 tear posterior horn of the medial meniscus. What is the best possible treatment? For a 22 year old severe pain
Arthroscopy: For a young person arthroscopic meniscal repair is the best solution. If the meniscus is not repairable or is in a portion of the meniscus that has a poor blood supply ("white/ white" zone), then arthroscopic partial medial menisectomy is best. Meniscal tears generally do not heal and cause pain, ' catching' etc. Even in young pts. See your ors who is proficient @ arthroscopy. 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?
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 have an oblique central zone tear involving the posterior body segment of the medial meniscus. It is contiguous with an undersurface tear predominatlyl Peripheral zone tear of the posterior horn. Is surgery in my future?
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
I have a horizontal oblique tear extending to the inferior articular surface of posterior horn of medial meniscus. Also small joint effusion. Can it heal completely without surgery?
No Meniscus Tears: Cannot heal on their own as the meniscus tissue has no real blood supply in an adult. Surgery will probably be the only thing that can treat it. A torn meniscus means you have torn the cartilage ring of tissue that sits between your femur and tibia in the knee joint. If it is displaced that means it has torn and a flap of tissue is shifted to the middle of the knee joint. ...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?
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

Surgery v. Rehab: Sounds like your knee is pretty painful. Depending on the severity of your symptoms (ie. How bad does it hurt, it is swollen, etc) and what your ultimate goals are, you could trial a rehabilitation program or head to surgery. I often will advise trial of rehab initially, though if your pain is severely limiting this may not be a viable option. Surgery has its own set of risks, so talk to your doc ...Read more
Radial tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, involving its inner half. Degenerative change of the body of the medial meniscus also noted. The prominent high signal seen posterior and posteromedial to the medial meniscus is suggestive of men
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
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
