MRI says recurrent tear of surgically repaired posterior supra and infra tendons w/23mm of medial retraction& 23mm anterior to posterior gap.This bad?
Ask Orthopedic Surgn: The MRI just gives an anatomical report, it tells you nothing about how it moves. Your question is better posed relating to "function" (i.e., "can you still use the shoulder, & for how long?"). This question is best asked of the doctor who ordered the MRI (& should have a copy of the report). If you get no answer, take your MRI picture + report to an Orthopedic Surgeon.

What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?
Nothing: There is nothing that would "diffuse" a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (acl). Acl is one of only few ligaments in our body that is entirely intra-articular which means it is not within soft tissues but is sitting inside the joint space with some surrounding joint fluid. This atmosphere makes it impossible for the ACL to heal (which I am assuming what you meant by diffuse). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Gr 2 tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus with focal tear reaching inferior articular surface
and gr 2 in femoral attachment of mcl. Pl advise?
Need more informatio: Classification of meniscal tears as a grade is not usually utilized. Grading is typcially an MRI finding. Grade 2 signal implies midsubstance degeneration. If the signal extends to the articular surface it can indicate an actual tear. Mri often finds things that are not symptomatic. A grade 2 mcl tear will typically heal in a brace. Meniscus may need surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have an oblique tear of the posterior horn medial meniscus with prominent interior medial extrusion. What is the treatment?
What does signal changes in the posterior left medial menicus and posterior lateral meniscus mean?
Degeneration: Mri scans image tissue by measuring hydrogen atoms such as are found in water (h2o - 2 parts hydrogen, 1 part water) . As a meniscus ages the tissue degenerates and is replaced by fluid which is mostly water. Increased MRI signal ( increased fluid) usually means some degeneration of the meniscus which is a consequence of aging. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

L4-l5 large extrusion left subarticular foraminal. Severe compress left traversing L5 nerve root posterior displaced left lateral recess y no surgery?
grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in
anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus.
grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus.
Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus.So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
