They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Degenerative : Sub means below and chondral means cartilage. This is a degenerative cyst in the bone below the cartilage near the hip joint. These are benign cysts and don't need any specific treatment. They are often seen with osteoarthritis but in your case may just be an incidental finding not requiring any treatment unless you are having hip pain. ...Read more

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

What is a enthesopathic fibrocystic foci on the posterior of the humeral head (associated with lots of pain in my shoulder)?

What is a enthesopathic fibrocystic foci on the posterior of the humeral head (associated with lots of pain in my shoulder)?

Humeral Cysts: Cystic changes are seen in the head of the humerus on MRI scan of the mature shoulder in the bone marrow of the greater tuberosity where the rotator cuff tendons insert. In medicine, an enthesopathy refers to any disorder involving the attachment of a tendon or ligament to a bone called an enthesis. When inflamed it is called enthesitis. By age 50 partial tears of the RCT are seen on many MRI's. ...Read more

How likely will you develop cuff arthropathy if you don't fix a complete full-thickness retear of infra with 1.5cm retraction to superior humeral head?

How likely will you develop cuff arthropathy if you don't fix a complete full-thickness retear of infra with 1.5cm retraction to superior humeral head?

Difficult to answer : It can be unpredictable who develops significant arthritis years to decades after a full thickness rotator cuff tear. I would make my decision regarding another surgery based on your pain and function levels, including whether you have range of motion and strength deficits. Regenerative injections such as PRP could be a nonsurgical option if you hope to avoid surgery. ...Read more

Type lll slap and posterior decentering of the humeral head with evidenceof repetitive trabecular impaction capsular destention meaning and treatment?

Bucket-handle tear.: A type III SLAP lesion consists of a bucket-handle tear of the cartilage around the shoulder socket (glenoid labrum) with an intact biceps tendon. This type of labral lesion is stable and usually treated by arthroscopic debridement, although you may need capsular tightening due to the repetitive strain on your shoulder capsule. Your surgeon will be able to answer your questions more specifically. ...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 more

Some area of erosion & marrow edema of  humeral head near the intersection of the supraspinatus tendon. Some red marrow replacement. What'sdoes itmean?

Shoulder impingement: You could be suffering from a condition called shoulder impingement where the rotator cuff (supraspinatous is one of the tendons that is part of rotator cuff) is "impinged" by bone above it and sometimes can result in irritation at the insertion on the humerus. This can result in bone edema and inflammation which can present itself as shoulder pain with certain motions. ...Read more
