Linear tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus, was painful few weeks ago, now it feels is getting better can this be possible is good or bad?

Linear tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus, was painful few weeks ago, now it feels is getting better can this be possible is good or bad?

Yes: Symptoms related to a meniscal tear can improve with time depending on the type tear that is present. A linear tear as you have described is just such a tear. You may be able to treat this conservatively and never require surgery. A "bucket handle" tear on the other hand typically does not get better with time. None will actually "heal" with time. ...Read more

I'm 20yr old guy, I've grade 3 tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus, doc told 1month rest to see if it heals on its own as I'm young. Can it heal?

Possibly: If a tear in the meniscus occurs in the area where there is good blood supply, it can potentially heal/be repaired. The inner two thirds of the meniscus does not have much blood supply and tears in that area usually do not heal. ...Read more

Gr 2 tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus with focal tear reaching inferior articular surface and gr 2 in femoral attachment of mcl. Pl advise?

Need more informatio: Classification of meniscal tears as a grade is not usually utilized. Grading is typcially an MRI finding. Grade 2 signal implies midsubstance degeneration. If the signal extends to the articular surface it can indicate an actual tear. Mri often finds things that are not symptomatic. A grade 2 mcl tear will typically heal in a brace. Meniscus may need surgery. ...Read more

Osteoarthritis: That description is arthritis of the knee. Treatment of knee arthritis goes sequentially from less invasive to more invasive. Begin with activity modification, weight loss, physical therapy, antibinflammatory meds, and then move to more invasive options such as cortisone injections or visco supplementary injections. Surgical options include arthroscopy (poor results), partial knee replacement, & total knee replacement. ...Read more

Surgery v. Rehab: Sounds like your knee is pretty painful. Depending on the severity of your symptoms (ie. How bad does it hurt, it is swollen, etc) and what your ultimate goals are, you could trial a rehabilitation program or head to surgery. I often will advise trial of rehab initially, though if your pain is severely limiting this may not be a viable option. Surgery has its own set of risks, so talk to your doc ...Read more

MRI - tear of posterior horn/medial meniscus (infer/sup surfaces) + mild cartilage thinning + ant osteophyte formation + subchondral h/intensity signa?

Torn menscuc: The meniscus is a cartilage cushion that sits between the femur and the tibia and acts as somewhat of a shock absorber. Each knee has a medial and lateral meniscus; and when they tear they can cause pain, swelling, and catching. They can be fixed arthroscopically by repair or shaving with good results. ...Read more

I have a complex tear of my posterior horn medial meniscus at the root, tricompartmental chondral thinning and gout. What are my options?

See a orthopedist: You need to be seen and evaluated by a knee specialist. At you age, conservative care should be tried first.

I have a oblique grade 3 tear posterior horn of the medial meniscus. What is the best possible treatment? For a 22 year old severe pain

Arthroscopy: For a young person arthroscopic meniscal repair is the best solution. If the meniscus is not repairable or is in a portion of the meniscus that has a poor blood supply ("white/ white" zone), then arthroscopic partial medial menisectomy is best. Meniscal tears generally do not heal and cause pain, ' catching' etc. Even in young pts. See your ors who is proficient @ arthroscopy. Good luck! ...Read more

Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will I need surgery?

Surgery: Surgery is most likely needed to resolve your problem. Meniscus tears simply do not heal on their own, regardless of conservative treatment (including prolotherapy). It is possible that your symptoms of pain, etc will improve with time without surgery...But that doesn't mean the tear healed. In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon. ...Read more

I got knee surgeries on both knees got MRI and got grade 2 intrameniscal tear posterior horn of the medial meniscus n mild myxiod will I need surgery?

It depends...: Knee arthroscopy for a meniscal tear is an elective procedure that is performed based on pain, how it affects your function, and lifestyle. In the absence of locking, clicking, or pain limiting activity, surgery is not likely. This is especially true with an lesion within the substance of the meniscus as you describe. Preserve what meniscus you have remaining and consider joint health supplements ...Read more

Treatment for radial & longitudinal tears of the posterior horn medial meniscus, severe knee osteoarthrits moderate joint effusion, diffuse synovitis?

Numerous: The most definitive option is a knee replacement. Knee arthroscopy is not likely to be helpful at this point. Various injections such as cortisone, hyaluronic acid/joint fluid or platelet-rich plasma are reasonable options. Meds, braces and PT are considerations.

How should I treat a grade 2 intrameniscal tear within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus?

Quad strengthening: Most grade 2 intrameniscal tears do not cause significant pain. There is more of a likelyhood that you have hamstring and pes tendinitis (which sits in the same region as the meniscus). It is likely you are limping and favoring the knee (hyperextending), causing more pain in the hamstrings. With quad exercises, most of those symptoms will resolve. No need for knee arthroscopy. ...Read more

Meniscal Tears: Medial meniscal tears are common in the knee. The type you describe is the most common tear, affecting both the body and posterior horn. Surgery is an option if you continue to have pain along the inner part of the knee and, especially, if you have mechanical symptoms (locking or catching of the knee) during range of motion. ...Read more

We can only guide a person to the right info/providers, and I will share your q with orthopedics and physiatry doctors.

Arthroscopic surgery: Tears in the medial meniscus can be repaired, the torn piece removed, through arthroscopic surgery. It is much superior to open knee surgery. A good orthopedist can also clean up some of the degenerative changes in the knee during the procedure. General anesthesia not necessary. Recovery can be difficult and sometimes prolonged, but the long term results should be well worth it. ...Read more
