Posterior Paraspinal Muscle Soft Tissue Edema
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Might be an error.: Sometimes, radiology reports have typographical errors in them. "Small paraspinal soft tissue" doesn't make a lot of medical sense, unless your muscles are small because you have small stature or not much muscle mass. It's possible that the report is missing a word or phrase describing some "small" finding. If you would like a second opinion on the MRI, let me know. ...Read more

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.

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.

Many fasciotomies CS returns. Hypertrophic muscles, scar tissue & fluid pockets in leg. Could fusing ankle atrophy muscles to reduce volume, & end CS?
Ankle Fusion: Ankle fusion (arthrodesis) absolutely will atrophy certain muscles in the foot and leg, as there is no further motion in the ankle joint. This limits the amount of contracture and use of the muscle, which leads to muscle wasting and atrophy. Also, you will not return the blood to your heart as effectively, as you rely on skeletal muscle to push the blood back to the heart (Venous insufficiency) ...Read more

If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more
