Wrist bone contusion plus torn wrist cartilage tfcc. X ray shows my injuried wrist bones too close to each other.  What can I do?

Grow cartilage: Most doctors do not believe, but we actually grow new cartilage in every joint in our body, every minute of every day. You need to wear out more slowly, and grow cartilage more quickly. Glucosamine works, but for the wrist needs to be given through skin by cream, or by injection. Oral pills do not work except for knees. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. ...Read more

What does small cyts in the capital bone and lunate bone i also is wearing a wrist splint

What does small cyts in the capital bone and lunate bone i also is wearing a wrist splint

Isolated : Isolated cysts in the carpal bones are typically benign, but you don't give any detail as to size or number etc... Having said that if there are symptoms associated there should be a work that may include ct scan and/or an mri. The fact that you're wearing a splint suggests that you do have some symptoms. The cysts may be related to the pain or they might be so-called "red herrings" , that is misleading i.e. There may be some other cause of the pain. Bottom line you should be evaluated further. ...Read more

Comminuted impacted fracture through the neck of the left humerus with associated mild valgus angulation of the humeral shaft. Can this heal in SLING?

In short YES. : I typically do not perform surgery on nondisplaced fractures of the proximal humerus. I tell people it is like having ice cream on a cone. If the ice cream (humeral head or ball) falls off the cone(shaft) then it needs surgery if the ice cream is tilted or slightly smashed no surgery. If it is blown to prices then surgery. ...Read more

Should I do surgery of subtle volar fracture through proximal base of proximal phalanx of thumb with volary distraction of avulsed fracture fragment?

See a hand surgeon: Fractures through joint surfaces are generally more problematic than those outside of joints. Depending on a number of factors, they may predispose to the onset of early arthritis in the joint if the surface is not reconstructed accurately. I would see a hand surgeon to evaluate the particulars of your case. Good luck. ...Read more

Tfcc injured. Will immobilization of the wrist heal cartilage?

Varies: It varies quite a bit, depending in part on the severity of the injury to the TFCC. Some people may have a very mild injury and do fine without even immobilization, while others can have injuries severe enough they need surgery. Initial immobilization is appropriate for many TFCC injuries to see if they will heal. May want to discuss specifics if your injury with your MD. ...Read more

"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally do u think cast will heel up?

"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally
do u think cast will heel up?

Probably: Fortunately the cuneiforms are pretty rigid with alot of soft tissue/capsular attachment that help form the midfoot. A cast should help to allow things to heal and ossify. This may predispose you to some midfoot pain/arthritis as you get older. A good arch support may help longterm. I'd let your orthopod determine if cast or boot or postop shoe is appropriate w/o seeing films. ...Read more

Ct scan"comminuted fracture is seen within right medial cuniform bone with sliglhty displaced cortical bony fragment laterally"
surgery or cast? Why .

Orthopedic consult: Displaced cuneiform fractures often require an open reduction and internal fixation with screws. This is due to tarsometarsal joint instability. Additional important considerations include - intra-articular vs extra-articular and plane of the fracture. Isolated cuneiform fractures are rare and more likely to happen in association with metatarsal injuries. You need to consult an orthopedic surgeon! ...Read more
