Ruptured Atlf And Torn Deltoids Without Rupture
Injured rotator cuff almost torn in half and my bicep tendon muscle ruptured surgery now trigger finger problems. Normal?
Yes: That sounds pretty typical. The biceps tear and rotator cuff tear occurs together as part of the same degenerative process. The tears (along with the surgery) cause swelling that involves the entire hand. The swelling and inflammation makes trigger fingers worse by swelling the finger tendons that no longer fit through their tendon sheaths. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Torn left knee meniscus twice, torn right achillis tendon, and symptoms of right knee meniscus tear after mri, no trauma, what could be the cause?!
Some activity: You do not have to have a specific injury to cause a meniscal tear. Sometimes the meniscus can degenerate and tear from repetitive activities such as running basketball and other pseudotraumatic sports i would work a lot on strengthening and plyometrics to help prevent further problems. ...Read more
I had small partially ruptured biceps tendon, MRI after a year: subakromio-subdeltoidni burzitis. Can I carry around 5-10kg backpack with this injury?
Yes: Carrying a backpack on your shoulder should not cause a problem with the biceps tendon, although the act of bringing it up onto your shoulder might. I would not hesitate to discuss the specifics of your case with your orthopedist. ...Read more
Do I need surgery for fluid in the subcromial/subdeltoid bursa and a high grade partial thickness articulare sided tear supraspinatus tendon?
Varies: Full thickness tears of the rotator cuff will often retract and not heal; so if someone is young and reasonably active surgery usually optimizes outcome. Partial tears can heal at times without surgery. A high grade partial tear is very close to a complete tear; you would certainly want to be followed closely by an orthopedic surgeon to discuss your progress. ...Read more
Can a partially torn infraspinatus tendon, 2 bone spurs, and an inflamed subdeltoid bursa be causing my daily headaches?
Possibly: Pain in the shoulder area can cause a person to guard the area using the neck muscles as a backup. This tension in the neck can contribute to a person to experience more frequent tension headaches. ...Read more
How would you grade an ankle sprain with a ruptured atfl, high-grade partial tear of the deltoid ligament without disruption?
Full thickness tear on medial patellar retinacullum 2mon ago. Knee has stopped slipping during activities. I can still move it by flexing and bending.
Suffered a fractured fibula and ruptured deltoid ligament that required surgical repair. Are long-term consequences likely?
Anatomic: Not if the repair is anatomic and you didn't suffer an injury to the articular cartilage of the talus at the time of the injury. It's usually impossible to tell if there has been any cartilage damage actutely and if there is it can take decades to be experienced clinically or be seen on plain films. ...Read more

Having surgery for torn rotator cuff, rcr and impingment and cephlad migration of the humeral head. Can the do it arthroscopicly?
Depends: I am concerned from your question that you may have a large rotator cuff tear with some possible involvement of the nerve to the rotator cuff. The ability to repair all tears arthroscopically is based on the level of experience and skill of the surgeon. Ask your surgeon how many rotator cuff tears performed each year and what results are before proceeding. Learn more here: http://theshouldercent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
During a recent mra, it showed a cam impingement, labral tears and gluteus maximus strain, surgery was recom'd; what can I do for the strain?
Strain will heal: Glute strain will heal on it's own. You can improve timing and how you feel with mobilization exercises, rolling, and physical therapy. Labral tear can be treated with and without surgery. Find an experienced orthopaedic surgeon who does a large number of hip scope cases a year. Scoping a hip is not the same as a knee or shoulder. ...Read more
Could I have torn my rotator cuff at the same time as a distal bicep tendon rupture? I had surgery for the rupture, now need MRI for the shoulder
Unlikely: A ruptured biceps [email protected] the elbow is usually known... Eccentric contraction of the muscle w/ a feeling of a ' pop' or tear is commonplace. Rotator cuff tears occurring @ the same time is conceivable but very unlikely. More likely you had a rct already and was 'picked up' by your ors @ exam/mri. The "long head" of the biceps in the shoulder can tear in chronic rot.Cuff tears . Gl! ...Read more
Got an MRI today and my report said the following "inflammatory process of the subscapularis tendon and supraspinatus tendon with intrasubstance injury. Subacromial bursa fluid in sub deltoid." What does this mean? Do I have a tear?

I ruptured ligament, a torn ligament, and 2 bone contusions. I was never immobilized. 3 months ago in ankle. Still pain. Is surgery necessary?
If an MRI reveals an oblique tear through disc proper of triangular fibrocartilage, will playing tennis/ golf do further damage?
Yes over time: If you are under 40 the tear is probably from repetitive trauma and will get worse over time with activities that cause ulnar deviation (towards the little finger). If older the tear is probably degenerative and may or may not get worse with use. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Achilles tendon rupture seven months ago i had surgery to repair a complete rupture of my Achilles tendon. I'm still having pain and soreness. Is that normal? Will it ever go away?
I had a severe sprain which was a complete tear of my ATFL ligament along with damage to the CFL. I'm immobilized but unstable. Will stability return?
Ankle sprains: You are describing an ankle sprain with 2 of the 3 ropes that hold your bones together (ligaments) on the outside of ankle torn. (Get xray if bones hurt). For first sprains, most people do well with rest, ice, elevation and gentle range of motion activity. Later, exercises often strengthen the supporting muscles and can help. If the ankle remains unstable make sure to see an orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more
