T5 Vertebrae Fracture
Bony structure under medial malleolus bilaterally, no pain w/ compression, tibial nerve is palpable, mild flat foot.Could it be misaligned calcaneus?
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

Dynamic forces: Many factors can lead to this, but most important are the support base and the bite. This is a long span to cover when starting with the canine, but do not expect the zirconium to fx. Likely clenching/grinding without occlusal guard/compliance . See the expert in reconstruction - Prosthodontist. Consider 2 crowns and 2 implants (12,13) with crowns and bite correction (lower arch). good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You need an evaluation for the reason you have back pain. ...Read more
Post fusion 2009: now l4-5 right facet joint arthrosis, severe neural foriminal stenosis with some compression. Surgery needed?
Ganglion cyst: The cause of ganglion cysts is not known. One theory suggests that trauma causes the tissue of the joint to break down forming small cysts, which then join into a larger, more obvious mass. The most likely theory involves a flaw in the joint capsule or tendon covering (sheath) that allows the joint tissue to bulge out. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
My dental specialist pulled out a tooth and one or more bony wall plates collapsed. So, no bone graft . Should a radiograph have been taken post extraction?
Not usually: If the tooth was removed with the entire root structure intact, a postoperative radiograph would be of little benefit. Collapse of the buccal or facial bone can commonly occur with the removal of a tooth with thin bone overlying the root. With some complicated extractions some bone may be removed and/or some bone can be attached to the root when it is removed, leaving a defect in the bone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Will an xray of the rib cage appear different between bruised&fractured ribs and what would the difference be? Can xray show organ damage?
Yes and no: An x-ray can show a fracture of the ribs but will not show a bruise. However, rib fractures can be hard to see and may be missed. Which organ are you referring to? Organ damage is hard to see on x-ray depending on the organ. Lung damage can be seen but you will need a CT scan with Contrast to see Liver, spleen or kidney damage. ...Read more

Yours are 1.7cm and 1.5cm and are small by comparison. These should not be symptomatic, let alone need surgery, your head and ear pain probably unrelated. But see an expert ~ a neuro-surgeon to ask ! thanks ...Read more
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
