What's a high grade partial tear of patella tendon?

What's a high grade partial tear of patella tendon?

Be seen: The patellar tendon connects the knee cap to the tibia. Without your patella tendon, you can not straighten your knee and it would be difficult to walk. A partial tear means it is not completely torn, but a high grade means it is pretty close to a complete tear. It is probably going to need to be fixed or you may have a poor outcome. Thank you.

High grade partial tear ucl and common flexor tendon what does this mean?

High grade partial tear ucl and common flexor tendon what does this mean?

Thumb or Elbow?: The ulnar collateral ligament (ucl) is a primary stabilizer to one of your thumb joints. It provides stability to the thumb when you pinch something between your thumb and index finger. It is injured when the thumb is bent backwards and outwards. It is unlikely that you injured the actual flexor tendon to the thumb but rather the insertion of some thumb muscles that attach near the ucl.

Partial tear in right posterial tibial tendon in January. Had been immobilized, crutches, fine for months. Pain back with less mobility. Surgery?

Partial tear in right posterial tibial tendon in January. Had been immobilized, crutches, fine for months. Pain back with less mobility. Surgery?

Orthotics/MLS laser: A partial posterior tibial tendon tear often forms a lumpy scar in the area of pain. Other conservative treatments can include the use of custom orthotics to hold the arch up to reduce the strain on that tendon. The MLS laser which is a cold non painful laser treatment program can be helpful too.

Could a ankle tendon tear be misdiagnosed as a partial tear in mri?

Could a ankle tendon tear be misdiagnosed as a partial tear in mri?

A tear is a tear: The degree of tendon tear may differ in radiologist interpretation; however, a tear is a tear. Keep in mind, the MRI is a diagnostic test. Your doctor should be treating your symptoms based on his/her exam and use the MRI to confirm. Bottom line, you need the tear to heal and to avoid re-injuring it. That should be the doc's focus in treatment plan.

I have a full thickness tear in shoulder and a partial tear in bicep tendon. Is surgery my best option? Have had this for 5 months.

I have a full thickness tear in shoulder and a partial tear in bicep tendon. Is surgery my best option? Have had this for 5 months.

Yes: I presume its a full thickness rotator cuff tear. Its a bit uncommon in your age group. However, if the diagnosis is based on a good physical exam, and it correlates to MRI findings, its probably the correct diagnosis. Treatment depends on tear configuration, but the natural history of rc tears is to become larger. Some balanced tears do well with pt. If pt hasn't helped, then rc repair is the best option. Its done arthroscopically, takes about 1.5hrs, and is out patient. Full healing takes 4-6months. For the biceps, its usually a significant pain generator, and should be addressed with tenodesis (reattach to humerus) or tenotomy (release). The choice depends on activity level and other factors. Tenotomy is the least invasive, and has excellent results. Surgery is best done by a sports medicine trained orthopedist.

I have a partial tear in my Achilles tendon and was told to get a walking boot. Should I get a short or tall walking boot?

Tall: You need to nutralize the Calf muscle and prevent the ankle from flexing. A tall boot would be more secure and reduce play in the ankle. Also add heel lifts to lesson tension on achilles tendon.
