Stress Fracture Involving The Right First Cuneiform With Extensive Associated Bone Marrow Edema
Does subchondral insufficiency fracture of the superolateral aspect of the left femoral head with extensive bone marrow edema require a surgery?
Likely, eventually!: It sounds like you probably have some avascular necrosis with subchondral collapse. Unfortunately, the controversial treatments don't usually work once collapse has started. You're likely, eventually, going to need to have a hip replacement. You should see a hip specialist to go over your options at this point. ...Read more
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

What does this mean? I have a small subchondral fracture deformity of the lateral trochlear facet with prominent bone marrow edema throughout the regi
Cartilage damage: Prominent marrow edema of the lateral trochlea means that the cartilage covering the bone in this area is injured or worn thin. This is a common place to develop arthritis which causes marrow edema when the cartilage gets too thin or is worn out and bare bone is exposed there. If you had a recent injury, it could be cartilage damage rather than arthritis. See your provider for recommendations. ...Read more
There is an ostechondral lesión involving the medial facet of the patella adjacent to the patellar ridge with bone marrow edema.
Osteochondral lesion: Is a focal injury of the cartilage and underlying bone along the articular surface, due to trauma, repetitive micro trauma, instability, or abnormal joint loading. If left untreated, can lead to accelerated development of osteoarthritis. Treatment depends on patient factors and lesion characteristics. Best to see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

My MRI reads. Subchondral irregularity in the weight- bearing portion of the medial femoral condyle and extensive marrow edema . Whats going on?
Subchondral linear focus of hypointense signal at proximal aspect of navicular, which may be subchondral fracture or avascular necrosis. Explain?
Is this an MRI?: It sounds like you are reading an MRI report, what they are describing is abnormal signal on the MRI in your Navicular ( one of the bones in your foot) It sounds like there could be a fracture - maybe you had an injury, or if there was no injury but you have had pain and there is an area just below the surface of the joint that the bone has died (Avascular necrosis- AVN) hope that helps ...Read more

Radiographs show a "curvilinear osseous fragment consistent with an avulsion fracture of the anterior talus." What will be treatment/recovery from orthopedics that I meet with next week?
Xray recently shows severe joint space narrowing involve the patellofemoral compartment with underlying subchondral sclerosis & osteophyte formation?
Osteoarthritis: These are classical findings of osteoarthritis being spelled out by the radiologist. Osteoarthritis develops as we lose the cartilage that is not seen on X-ray and usually leaves a "joint space" on films. During this degenerative cascade, sclerosis happens to the bone under cartilage and bone tries to increase its surface area when weakened by forming spurs called osteophytes. Good luck. ...Read more
Injured for >2 months. MRI reveals extensive bone marrow edema in midfoot and navic and subchondral fx navicular. X-ray shows the fx. Will this heal?
Probably: Should be under care of orthopedic doctor. With proper immobilization with cast or brace and then probably some physical therapy the injury will probably heal.Sometimes there may be ligamentous injury but your mri would detect this aberration. Healing process may take longer since injury already two months old. ...Read more
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more
