Peripheral Subluxation Of Anterior Horn And Remnant Body
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

Age, degeneration, : Vertebral body may shift over another below it due to incompetence/laxity of facet joints at that level due to degeneratiion of joints which may become arthritic. This is seen with increasing age particularly in post menopausal girls & has a higher association in females than males & may be related to lower bone density developing in addition to degeneration. Also seen with rheumatoid arthritis. ...Read more
Reconstructed acl: hyperintensity seen in the proximal part with anterior tibial subluxation. Can someone explain that to me?
Reinjury?: The acl tethers the tibia to the femur preventing it from sliding forward in certain positions of knee bending. Hyperintensity seen in the proximal part of the reconstructed acl means there has been an injury/tear/bleeding of the ligament where it attaches to the femur (thigh bone). Subluxation means the tibia is sliding forward/not doing it's job. See your ortho doc for an exam and plan. ...Read more
I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome, I feel my hip pop out and see a bulge on the anterior side when it does. Is this a subluxation?
Loose joints: While patients with Ehlers Danlos syndrome tend to have loose joints, dislocating or subluxating the hip to a noticeable degree is very unlikely. The hip is a deep ball and socket joint that is highly contained and is surrounded by thick muscles. What you are feeling "pop out" anterioy is the psoas (hip flexor) tendon that is positioned over the front of the hip joint itself ...Read more
Complications of cubital tunnel surgery a "second opinion" neurosurgeon (from our same ppo) is suggesting an operation to re-route a nerve due to anterior subluxations after the failure of cubitual tunnel surgery; meaning, to loop the nerve around the el
Reasonable: Most often, a cubital tunnel decompression will not have to be revised. Sometimes, moving the nerve forward is necessary, either because the nerve is unstable or because the decompression was not enough surgery to take care of the original nerve problem. Currently treatment is most often to perform a decompression and then do the transposition later only if necessary. ...Read more
Sympathtic dysfuncti: Horner's is a complex of eye findings-lid droop, pupillary narrowing, diminished sweating - caused by a disturbance of the sympathetic nerve supply to the eye. Almost always on one side only. Can be caused by forceps for birth, tumors in the upper chest ( usually lung cancer), vascular lesions in the neck and trauma. Some relief with proper treatment - see your neuro-ophthalmologist. ...Read more
associated with migraine headache: the signs and .Symptoms of horner syndrome can also occur during a migraine headache. When the headache is gone, the signs and symptoms of horner syndrome usually also go away. Cluster headache are piercing pain behind one eye. ...Read more
Neurological deficit: This condition is caused by injury to part of your sympathetic nerves located in the upper chest area. The damage to these nerves causes changes in your pupil(dilated) and loss of sweating on the half of your affected side of the face. Most patients develop this either due to lung cancer in the top part of the lung or due to injury during surgery in the same are of the upper chest near to th spine. ...Read more
Various : Horner syndrome results in a unilateral small pupil, slight drooping of the eyelid, and possible changes in sweating on the same side. It is caused by problems in the sympathetic nerves passing upward in the chest into the neck and toward the base of the brain. Numerous conditions can cause the problem, and this would need extensive testing to find the cause. ...Read more
Many: Horner's syndrome, a complex of drooping eyelid (ptosis), constricted pupil (miosis) and reduced sweating of one side of the face (anhidrosis) can be caused by many things, including tumors on top of the lung, or anything that compresses certain nerves in the head and neck. In addition to falling lid, dryness of the eye & inadequate blink can alter vision. Advise you seek care immediately! ...Read more
In horners syndrome, does the miotic pupil remain a constant size or does it also respond to variations in light level?
It still responds: In Horner's syndrome the pupil can still dilate to varying intensities of darkness but just not as forcefully or briskly as the normal eye. Another way to put it is that depending upon the severity of the sympathetic pathway interruption pupillodilatory muscle activity can be affected anywhere from mildly to severely or even paralyzed. Only seen dilation paralysis a few times but it can happen. ...Read more
A persistently small pupil (miosis)
A notable difference in pupil size between the two eyes (anisocoria)
Little or delayed opening (dilation) of the affected pupil in dim light
Drooping of the upper eyelid (ptosis)
Slight elevation of the lower lid, sometimes called upside-down ptosis
Little/no sweating (anhidrosis) either on the entire side of face or isolated patch of skin on the affected side. ...Read more
See below: Horner's syndrome is a constellation of findings including eyelid drooping (ptosis), constriction of the pupils (miosis), and decreased sweat (anhidrosis) on the same side of the face. It's caused by a problem in the nervous system. Occasionally it can be from a cancer pushing on the nerves in the chest that feed the face. ...Read more
