Proximal Biceps Tendon Rupture Surgery
Revision rotator cuff surgery failed w/complete full-thickness infra tear w/1.5cm retraction.All 3 other tendon intact. Can get cuff tear arthropathy?
Frozen Shoulder: You are at high risk of developing a frozen shoulder if the revision of a full thickness tear of the conjoint tendon of the rotator cuff failed. I hope you are in physical therapy and have a set of low cost safe resistance bands at home to reduce impingement. By the way, the three main muscles of the rotator cuff are supraspinatus, infraspinatus and Teres minor. They insert via a common tendo ...Read more

Your question is???: What is your question? Making a statement is not asking a question. Ii assume you have discussed your options with an orthopedist. ...Read more
Lateral epicondylitis, tendinopathy with multiple tendon ruptures along extensor tendon. Treatment options?

Peroneal tendons subluxing. Extensor retinaculum repair just failed. Cavus foot from CS. Can both retinacula (2) & cavus be fixed at once? Techniques?
Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella, subcutaneous edema
When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more

Peroneal retinaculum repaired twice, peroneus brevis to longus tenodesis. New MRI shows hypertrophic tear of peroneus longus. What are my options?

Mri of shoulder mild partial intrasubstance tearing of supra, infras and subsc tendon insertions". Tendinopathy of the intra-articular bicep tendon ?
Diagnosis?: Don't make the mistake of determining your treatment based on an MRI reading. If you don't already have a diagnosis that makes sense to you on an anatomic basis prior to the mri, consider a second opinion. For instance, the number of changes you describe may be because of chronic untreated instability. Learn more: http://theshouldercenter.Com/shoulder-pain.Htm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Should I consider surgery?
SLAP tear extending from superior posterior to anterior
inferior labrum. Possible tear of middle glenohumeral ligament. Partial-thickness bursal surface supraspinatus tendon tear. Focal cartilaginous loss of glenoid.
High grade partial thickness bursal surface tear distal junction supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons?
MRI diagnosis: The best results happen when a clear diagnosis is established with a detailed examination and history and confirmed with testing such as an MRI or emg, not the other way around. Be careful about having surgery based on an MRI report.

15wks postop revision rotator cuff surg w/fullthickness infra tear 1.5cm retracted superior to humeral head & .5cm partial supraspin tear, can fix it?
Revision Cuff Repair: Attempting a 2nd revision has a low likelihood of working. If you're having significant pain, weakness and limited range of motion - you may want to discuss superior capsular reconstruction or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty with your orthopedic surgeon. If your symptoms aren't that debilitating - may want to try non-op - PT, injections, etc. ...Read more
My wrist has torn tendons, torn ligaments, subluxing ECU tendon w tear & ganglion cyst. As well as tenosynovitis + tendinosis . What can be done
Physical exam: An xray will not directly show a patellar tendon rupture, however, typically your knee cap will be further up your leg than normal. The xray will also show if a piece of bone was pulled off of the patella or tibia. The diagnosis is made clinically - you cannot raise your leg straight up while keeping your knee straight. You may also feel a defect in the tendon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will i need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?
MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF?" I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What does peritendinous thickening around the biceps tendon with anterior displacement of the biceps tendon mean?
Inflammation: When a tendon gets inflamed, you will often get an inflammatory tissue that forms around the tendon. Sometimes there is enough that it can push the tendon forward. So you have an inflammation of the tendon (tendonitis). If not treated correctly, this can lead to rupture of the tendon. ...Read more
