Subchondral Fracture Knee
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
This depends on ...: What kind of dislocation? I would guess your knee cap slid out of position and when it came back a piece of the knee cap fractured. In this case the knee cap fracture dictates the treatment course. If the fracture is out of position you may need surgery. If it is not, bracing followed by pt can be helpful. Ultimately if knee cap is unstable you may need surgery to repair ligaments. ...Read more

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage.Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion.Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?
Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
MRI of knee shows "Oblique tear posterior horn medial meniscus, lateral patellar plica and minimal synovial knee effusion" will I need surgery? or ?
Possibly: It depends on the degree of tear, how much it is effecting your daily activities and whether it responds to conservative treatment. If the plica does not get better with anti inflammatory meds you will most likely need arthroscopic surgery to remove it, although your orthopedic surgeon will be the best MD to determine that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
