What severe injuries are possible from hitting trochlear groove in knee into corner on a table? It was with extreme force with bent knee.
Contusion mainly: Despite the attention-getting pain, unless you have very thin/weak bones, it is unlikely to result in a break (but not impossible); and more likely to be a bruise (/contusion) of the ligament/tendon passing through there--which can take a few weeks to heal. Tear / worse damage also possible. If rest-ice-compression-elevation & Ibuprofen do not help with pain after 3-5 days, should see orthopedist. ...Read more
What does slight lateral positioning of the patella and shallow trochlear groove with min. anterior lateral femoral condyle ridge reactive change mean?
Common MRI : It means that your kneecap sits slightly off to the side on the end of the thigh bone( trochlea) @ 90degrees of bend. ( flexion), and your 'groove' ( trochlea) is slightly shallow on your femur. Very common radiologic ' diagnosis' , seen most commonly in patients w/ 'mild' patellar instability or ' kneecap' pain. See your ORS for significance . Best of Luck! ...Read more
Tkr patella dislocated. What now. Many failed lateral releases. Shallow trochlear groove. Cause. How next proceed? Frustrated

2 failed lateral release patella dislocations. Now rt tkr in may. Nov and patella dislocated again. Medial pain . Shallow trochlear groove. What next?
My MRI results say chondromalacia involving the medial femoral condyle as well as the central trochlear groove also joint effusion what does this mean?
Cartilage injury: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have grade 2 chondromalacia patella and grade 3 of the trochlear groove, confirmed via arthroscopy. Does this qualify me for knee replacement?
No: Surgical replacement of the knee is the last resort. Regular exercise to decrease and maintain weight and to improve joint strength : swimming, water aerobics/ walking; bike riding. Use water weights for weight training and muscle building. Talk with your Orthopedic doctor about injections ...Read more
Seen on a CT scan the trochlear groove appears to be somewhat shallow as measured 3 cm above the level of the knee joint. Could you please explain it?
MRI: These measurements are only valuable when used with clinical information. I would ask the clinician who ordered the study to explain the findings to you ...Read more
Left knee MRI shows I have trochlear groove arthritis. What aerobic exercises can I do? Cycling? Running? Stair climber?
Non impact ideally: Your patellofemoral joint (where the knee cap meets the trochlear groove on the femur) sees 3-6 times your body weight and this is even more with running and other high impact exercises. Ideally you should stick with non impact activities like cycling, swimming and using the elliptical. The stair climber will likely be very tough because the amount of stress it puts on the pf joint is very high. ...Read more
My MRI results came back saying: mild trochlear dysphasia with shallow trochlear depth, which can predispose to patellar instability. Patellar chondromalacia with a full thick lness chondral defect at the genu of the patella.
What does this mean? Surgery
What does this mean? I have a small subchondral fracture deformity of the lateral trochlear facet with prominent bone marrow edema throughout the regi
Cartilage damage: Prominent marrow edema of the lateral trochlea means that the cartilage covering the bone in this area is injured or worn thin. This is a common place to develop arthritis which causes marrow edema when the cartilage gets too thin or is worn out and bare bone is exposed there. If you had a recent injury, it could be cartilage damage rather than arthritis. See your provider for recommendations. ...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

Geographic tongue: Geographic tongue, an inflammatory condition of the tongue affecting approximately 2% of the population, is characterized by discolored regions of taste buds or sometimes even cracks in the surface of the tongue. The condition is usually chronic, and frequently manifests after eating any of a range of exacerbating foods, or during times of stress, illness, or hormonal surges (particularly in women. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
