Surgery time for tibial tubercle osteotomy?

Surgery time for tibial tubercle osteotomy?

If failed nonop: If all nonoperative measures for suspected patellar instability have been tried and failed, then T.T. osteotomy can be used to treat this problem. However, the success rate with this surgery is fair to good with a long recovery. I would make sure you have been through a long course of PT and used a quality brace first.

Can you tell me what a left knee arthroscopy tibial tubercle osteotomy consist of?

The tibia tubercle: Tibia tubercle surgery usually relates to either patellar (kneecap) instability that is severe or to underlying patella/trochlea articular cartilage disease. Sometimes it can be performed for both patellar instability and articular cartilage wear. When the tibial tubercle is osteotomized (sawed) and moved to the inner side and elevated it can ease the pressure on the patella and improve tracking.

Navicular is a bone: In the midfoot, if it is prominent it sticks out a bit. Treatment may include smart shoe selection so there is no rubbing, padding the area, or shaving the prominence in the operating room. (The latter done by the doctor, not by you of course)

I cut my tibia tubercle & it opened up a bunch of fluid into my knee (6 stitches). m. what can I do to reduce the swelling quicker?

Cut in tibia tubercl: How long ago? How long is the wound? I think is about 6-8 cm. And the depth into the synovial of the joint. Obviously required repair. Was this done in layers? 1-2, 3 layers, or just the skin. Was the repair done in the ER or in a walk in clinic? Are you on antibiotics? All this issues are very important. An injury of a joint with damage of the synovia must be treated with aggressively. The swelling is a mark of inflammation, which can be from the injury or from infection. Do you have drainage from the wound? Is it clear or yellowish-greenish stained. Any way you should be examined by an orthopedic surgeon, who will have the opportunity to feel the joint, assess the mobility, and the cartilages, and start you on antibiotics or change them if required, and in the event of drainage take a specimen for culture and sensitivity.

I have very sore breasts as well as white dots on my nipples. My veins are very noticeable now, and the Montgomery tubercles are bigger. What's wrong?

Are you pregnant?: If there is a possibility that you are pregnant, check a test. If you are not, or the test is negative. It is just some inflammation in the breasts. If you're drinking more caffeine than usual, you'll have more breast tenderness

I need exercises for a tibial plateau break?

I need exercises for a tibial plateau break?

Timing is everything: The simple answer is yes. If not operated on, pt with rom and quad strengthening will be initiated once your doctor feels it is stable. Following surgery, pr is frequently started earlier as long as the fracture is stable. Healing time usually is 3 to 4 months.

What is the recovery time for an open wedge tibial osteotomy?

Healing by 6-8 weeks: Newer osteotomy techniques and implants may allow for earlier weight bearing (in a locked hinged brace) than the historical standard of 6 weeks on crutches. Many are done as true outpatient surgery. Rehabilitation 2x weekly for 3 months is expected. Unlimited (nonimpact aerobic activity) usually OK by 3 months. Discuss your specific rehabilitation with your surgeon.

What is the amount of time it take to recover from the removal of a tibial osteochondroma?

What is the amount of time it take to recover from the removal of a tibial osteochondroma?

Depends: Depends on location of osteochondroma. They are generally located near the knee. Most time off is due to healing of the wound that can take several weeks. If it is a pedunculated lesion it will not violate cortex too much and usually can weight bear as tolerated immediately after surgery. If it is sessile and requires alot of violation of cortex some degree of weight restriction may be requd.

What causes tibial hemimelia?

What causes tibial hemimelia?

It is genetic: Tibial hemimelia syndrome (affects both legs) is believed to be due to an autosomal dominant gene passed on from one of the parents, while unilateral tibial hemimelia only affects one limb, and is believed to be due to an autosomal recessive gene, passed on by both parents. It may also be a spontaneous gene mutation, in which neither parent passed on the gene, but it just developed spontaneously.
