Painful Bone Marrow Edema Syndrome
Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more
Depends: Bone marrow edema is a term first used in 1988 to describe an abnormal signal pattern seen on the MRI of bone (usually of hip or knee) due to increased water content in the spongy bone portion called the marrow. Some doctors (orthopedics) may loosely use the term to describe resulting traumatic injury like a bruise to the bone in which case may resolve with healing in a few days.
Have slight bone marrow edema, which is usually caused by an injury. Could I have accidentally torn a ligament?
Maybe: But wouldn't be likley to be related. The marrow is on the inside of the bone. Ligaments attach on the outside. A severe injury could cause both, but these would not necessarily go together
See below:: It generally means injury to or an infective lesion in the coccyx. It is seen on mri. If you have had a fall onto butt, or involved in an accident, with pain in the tailbone, would indicate a fracture of the coccyx. Otherwise an infection can produce similar picture, but symptoms would include pain, fever, tenderness locally.
Subcortical edema: The cortex of bone is the outer layer. Subcortical means below the cortex. The term means you are suffering from bruising of the bone.
Appearance changing: That means that the amount of edema (like swelling) in the vertebral bodies has decreased compared to your earlier study. This may indicate improvement or treatment effect, however, these types of changes on MRI don't always correlate with the patient's symptoms. Hope that helps!
Should I request a CBC for my daughter that has unexplained difffuse bone marrow edema in segements 1 & 2?
Bone marrow edema: You should request a full examination and discussion about this, until an explaination is determined.
Bark: Cortex is latin for "bark" so cortical is the bark or outer layer of the bone. Subcortical edema is swelling below the cortex. It usually is indicative of a bone that has been bent but not broken.
What is the perfect solution for the bone marrow edema? And how can I get rid of it's terrible pain?
Cant tell: It is unclear what you are asking. Have you had a procedure or accident or bone bruise because bone marrow does not become edematous.
I've been dealing with bone marrow edema for a few years and everything we have tried has been futile. I want to play lacrosse what should I do?
Trauma to the bone: Bone marrow edema is the bone respondence +to some traumatic event, not strong enough to produce a fracture but sufficient to create the bone respond. Treatment is the same than afracture that is rest and the use of a cam-walker to unload the calcaneous.See 2 more doctor answers
Please explain There is an ostechondral lesión involving the medial facet of the patella adjacent to the patellar ridge with bone marrow edema.?
Osteochondral lesion: Is a focal injury of the cartilage and underlying bone along the articular surface, due to trauma, repetitive micro trauma, instability, or abnormal joint loading. If left untreated, can lead to accelerated development of osteoarthritis. Treatment depends on patient factors and lesion characteristics. Best to see an orthopedic surgeon.

Bone marrow is the flexible tissue found in the interior of bones. In humans, red blood cells are produced in the heads of long bones, in a process known as hematopoesis. On average, bone marrow constitutes 4% of the total body mass of humans; in an adult weighing 65 kilograms (140 lb), bone marrow accounts for approximately ...Read more
Bone is a living growing tissue made mostly of collagen (protein that provides soft framework) & the mineral calcium phosphate that adds strength & hardens the framework. Two types of bone are found in the body; cortical (dense compact outer layer) & trabecular (makes up inner layer, ...Read more
